Le Mans Movie Poster

“Steve McQueen takes you for a drive in the country…The country is France. The drive is at 200 MPH!”

Incredibly rare original 1971 “Le Mans” film poster. Any paper from this sought after Steve McQueen motor racing title is scarce but this British UK quad film poster is one of the the rarest (and the best) for this iconic McQueen movie. Beautifully painted artwork by Tom Jung, emphasising the patriotic red, white and blue colours of the America flag and also matching McQueen’s racing overalls. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored example presents and displays to excellent effect and is easily the best example I have ever offered for sale. A film where any posters are genuinely scarce and very hard to find due to the very limited cinematic release at the time. It has (over time) become an iconic and much admired motor sports film showing just why Steve McQueen was the true King of CoolHighly recommended; a personal favourite, classic and elegant…A great looking piece of truly collectable movie and motor racing memorabilia and it’s STEVE MCQUEEN !“Racing’s important to men who do it well. When you’re racing, it’s life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting”
