“Train them! Excite them! Arm them!…Then turn them loose on the Nazis !”
Featuring striking Frank McCarthy artwork this is a stunning original UK quad film poster for Robert Aldrich’s 1967 World War 2 action extravaganza “The Dirty Dozen”. The dark background is a lovely deep black with the lead characters; Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson & Jim Brown seeming to leap from the paper almost 3D style. Originally folded as issued to theatres this beautiful unrestored example presents near perfectly. Hugely collectable; very rare true first release poster for a war movie that is oft judged as one of the best from the action adventure genre.
Trivia: Tom Chantrell was hugely influenced by the composition of this poster in the design of the now iconic Style C Star Wars poster replacing the machine guns with light sabres and laser blasters.…more detail
