    “How fast must a man go to get from where he’s at ?”

    Beautifully executed and designed poster attributed to Stephen Frankfurt and Philip Gips. One of the best sports movie posters ever created, with the complementing Style A one of the others. Here Robert Redford as Winter Olympic skier David Chappellet is depicted in full on skier pose with an almost psychedelic effect to add to the feeling of motion. Hugely effective you really can feel the speed and excitement. The original US one sheet offered here is  is the rare Style B from first year of release 1969 and is presented in excellent tri-folded (as issued with no vertical centrefold) condition. Particularly sought after by skiing enthusiasts this represents a fine piece of sports / movie memorabilia that is becoming increasingly hard to find from a superior sports movie and one of the best skiing films ever made.
