“As boys, they said they would die for each other. As men, they did”
Truly one of the greatest gangster films ever made Sergio Leone’s Once Upon A Time In America. An epic, episodic, tale of the lives of a small group of New York City Jewish gangsters spanning over 40 years and thankfully it has a movie poster to match it. This original 1984 US / International one-sheet features beautiful detailed action artwork by the renowned artist Tom Jung. With machine guns blazing it really is a masterpiece of subtle, rich colours and a perfect complement to Leone’s film. Originally folded (as issued) this rare example has been lightly restored and conservation linen backed with the fold lines flattened out and now hardly noticeable. It presents and displays very well and represents an impressive example of very collectable original movie memorabilia from a multi award winning film.
Trivia: Sergio Leone had refused the offer to direct The Godfather (1972), an opportunity he deeply regretted. This may have partly inspired him to try a gangster film. Leone has also notably used the flashback technique pioneered in The Godfather: Part II (1974).…more detail
