“Dirty Harry and the homicidal maniac. Harry’s the one with the badge.”
The original UK quad film poster for “Dirty Harry” offered here is an extremely rare first release from 1971. This stunning original British UK quad movie poster features Bill Gold’s distinctive design & artwork. Originally folded (as issued – the fold lines are ‘soft’ and hardly noticeable) this unrestored, totally original piece presents to excellent effect; the white background is bright with the other bolder colours, deep & unfaded. Certainly the best example of this key poster I have ever seen, let alone have the pleasure to sell. Almost flawless in every way with only the very minimal handling and age wear…Clint Eastwood carved out a violent niche in the cinema with his portrayal of ‘Dirty Harry Callahan’ in this, the first in the popular series about a San Francisco detective who makes his own rules and this extremely scarce UK quad movie poster represents a fine piece of very collectible and desirable original film memorabilia presented in true investment grade condition.
Trivia: The movie’s most famous line is often misquoted. A lot of people mistakenly quote the line as “Do you feel lucky, punk?”, while the actual line is “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk ?”…more detail
