A personal favourite that’s “bloody” scarce…A rolled country of origin (British) quad film poster from the 30th Anniversary 1999 re-release for the classic Michael Caine crime caper “The Italian Job”. Design agency Kennedy Monk have produced a modern classic for what is possibly the greatest British crime caper film of all time. This is impressive with a capital “I” deep colours and presented in exceptional original rolled condition…Unquestionably the Film is a cultural masterpiece that has become legendary…a true British institution…An incredibly rare piece of film and “British” memorabilia that perfectly captures that moment in time…“They say he’s going to do a job in Italy…Well, I hope he likes spaghetti. They serve it four times a day in the Italian prisons”

Trivia: BMC (British Motor Corporation), the owners of the Mini, refused to donate any cars to the film. The boss of Fiat Motors, offered to donate all the cars they needed, including Fiat 500s in place of the Minis. The director, however, decided that, as it was a very British film, it should be British Minis. Fiat’s boss still donated scores of cars for filming, as well as the factory grounds, and even though the authorities refused to close the roads, the Italian Mafia stepped in, and shut whole sections of Turin down for filming, so the traffic jams in the film are real, as are people’s actions during it.
