The Holy Grail of swinging sixties movie posters and featured in ‘Film Posters of the 60’s’ by Tony Nourmand and Graham Marsh…a 1968 UK quad film poster for Jack Cardiff’s cult psychedelic ‘road’ movie “Girl on a Motorcycle” with a design by the artist John Armstrong whilst working for the advertising agency Lintas. This is an exceptional Style B example where Armstrong’s content and layout is perfectly suited by the landscape format of a UK quad.

Offered here is one of the highest quality “Girl on a Motorcycle″ film poster to come to market for a very long time. As you would expect colours are deep and unfaded combined with sexually suggestive imagery that literally ‘pops’ from the paper. Totally original and unrestored in near flawless folded (as issued) condition…It is easily the best folded example of this poster I have ever offered for sale and represents a true investment grade piece of original highly collectable extremely scarce cinema movie memorabilia.
