“You’re a big man, but you’re in bad shape. With me it’s a full time job. Now behave yourself”

A REAL FIND & ONE THE TRULY GREAT BRITISH FILM POSTERS. An original 1971 UK quad for Mike Hodges’ iconic British gangster film “Get Carter”. The raw grittiness of Arnaldo’s Putzu’s artwork, the implied threat of the double barrelled shotgun, the unbridled violence of the fight scene and the uniformed policemen leave us in no doubt that Michael Caine in “Get Carter” is involved in a serious crime thriller and then of course there’s the ‘flower power’  psychedelic jacket which acts as a nod to firmly state that the ‘peace & love’ of the previous decade has been discarded for a much more realistic vision of the now 70’s Britain. Being originally folded (as issued) this full bleed, totally unrestored example displays and presents to excellent effect in true investment grade condition with only very minimal handling and age wear. It is easily the best example of this scarce poster I have ever had the pleasure to offer for sale. A highly prized and collectible film poster that proved to be a defining role for Michael Caine…As stylish and cool a poster as they come and a fantastic piece of original film movie memorabilia…“Frank wasn’t like that. I’m the villain in the family, remember?”
