The Cincinnati Kid

The Cincinnati Kid Movie Poster

”He’d take on anyone, at anything, anytime ….it was only a matter of who came first !”

A personal favourite; film and poster. (IMHO) McQueen’s best performance, he was the ‘The Kid’…Without doubt one of the best looking McQueen film poster images. With design and artwork by Georges Allard this original 1965 French ‘Medium‘ Affiche film poster for “The Cincinnati Kid” (Le Kid de Cincinnati) is a stunning piece. Deep, rich colours and beautiful painted artwork, very striking and a fantastically rare French poster featuring country unique imagery; effective and memorable as McQueen’s presence dominates (rightly so) the poster. A real find in such high grade original condition. Totally unrestored this folded (as issued) example displays and presents to excellent effect and represents a scarce & highly collectable item of authentic movie memorabilia from one of the great Steve McQueen performances…“You’re good, kid, but as long as I’m around you’re second best. You might as well learn to live with it.”

Trivia: The rather gratuitous fight scene in the film was added at the instigation of Steve McQueen who had it written into his contract that he feature in an action scene.
