The Goonies

The-Goonies-Movie-Poster

£425.00

“They call themselves “The Goonies.” The secret caves. The old lighthouse. The lost map. The treacherous traps. The hidden treasure. And Sloth… Join the adventure.”

A magnificent example for one of the best feelgood films ever made…Richard Donner’s “The Goonies”. Add to the mix Steven Spielberg & Chris Columbus it was a guaranteed box office hit, but just to make sure they commissioned movie poster maestro Drew Struzan to create the campaign poster. He in turn produced some of the best work of his career as featured here on this original 1985 country of origin US/International one-sheet movie poster. The portrait format is perfectly suited to his design which is fondly referred to as the ‘hanging’ style. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored example looks incredible and presents and displays superbly being likely unused. An amazing item for a hugely loved and popular movie and a fantastic piece of scarce original movie memorabilia for a film poster that has become one of the most desirable titles of the 1980’s…“Goonies never say die !”

Trivia: One Eyed Willie’s ship, The Inferno, was 105 feet long and took 2-1/2 months to construct. It was modeled after Errol Flynn‘s ship in The Sea Hawk (1940). The sails required more than 7,000 square feet of material, the largest measured 30ft by 60ft. Some of the ship’s rigging was recycled for the Pirates of the Caribbean ship at Disneyland, which was being renovated at the time.
