The Day of the Jackal



“Nameless, faceless… relentlessly moving towards the date with death that would rock the world.”

An original country of origin British UK quad film poster from the original year of release 1973 for Fred Zinnemann’s terrorist thriller “The Day of the Jackal”. The movie is based on the best-selling novel by Frederick Forsyth which sees a lone sniper tasked with the assassination of French President Charles De Gaulle and it it this the image of Charles De Gaulle reflected in the assassins eye (Edward Fox as the titular Jackal) that provides some remarkable pencil drawn imagery in Michael Leonard’s impressive artwork featured on the UK quad movie poster; a very cleverly designed piece. Originally folded (as issued) it displays and presents to very good effect. A marvellous looking poster that certainly impresses and is scarce in this unrestored condition. A hugely collectable and sought after film poster that represents a fine example of original British movie memorabilia.
