“You only get one shot at fame.”
One of the most impressive ‘arthouse’ film posters of recent memory; a true visual pop art masterpiece featuring Lili Taylor (playing Valerie Jean Solanas) shooting a revolver all in the style of an Andy Warhol screen printed canvas. The UK quad of Mary Harron’s controversial true-life documentary for “I Shot Andy Warhol” is a piece of art in its own right. The British imagery although the same as the US design, which is in black & white, is actually in colour and because of this you would be hard pressed to find a better looking poster. Being an independent ‘art-house’ film meant it was shown in a very small, limited amount of cinemas, making these posters are incredibly rare. Totally original and unrestored this rolled (as issued) poster presents and displays to exceptional effect and represents a superb example of genuinely scarce modern film memorabilia.
Trivia: The filmmakers were given permission to reproduce some of Andy Warhol’s paintings and silk screens for the set, but they had to destroy them after filming.
