“When the gangs take over the highway…Remember he’s on your side.”
It is true to say that the worldwide advertising poster campaign for George Miller’s 1979 cinematic ‘game changer’ “Mad Max” is special and presented here this original country of origin Australian release one-sheet film poster is no exception. Mel Gibson as ‘Max’ takes centre stage as black and white imagery is offset against a dark blue background. It is a fantastic looking striking poster with a country unique design perfectly suited to the portrait format of the one-sheet. As “Mad Max” ran in Australia almost non-stop from its 1979 release this is likely from 1980/81 and in this very good unrestored original condition it is a tough find and presents to an a very high standard with the minimal of handling wear. Originally folded (as issued) this standout piece has deep, vibrant colours and stunning memorable imagery. An extremely collectable and rare film poster from one of the most genre defining Film’s ever made.
Trivia: Shot in twelve weeks, on a meager three hundred fifty thousand dollar budget, in and around Melbourne.…more detail
