Straw Dogs



”Every man dreads the day he might be forced to defend his wife and his home. For David, today is the day.”

An original first release ‘X’ certificate 1971 UK quad film poster for Sam Peckinpah’s brutal revenge thriller “Straw Dogs”. A cleverly designed poster that emphasises the sexual content by portraying Susan George in a tight jumper yet it is a bespectled Dustin Hoffman wielding a large double barrelled shotgun that sticks in the memory and hints at the violence to come. An incredibly rare British poster featuring country unique artwork. Sometimes simple is best and that certainly applies here…effective and memorable. Totally original and unrestored this folded (as issued) example displays and presents to excellent effect with a truly bright white background and sharp graphics. In this high grade condition it represents a scarce & sought item of authentic movie memorabilia from a pivotal 1970’s movie .
