“Show some restraint !”
An original US one sheet movie poster for Mary Harron’s S & M, bondage biopic for “The Notorious Bettie Page”. A sexy and distinctive design by creative arts agency ‘And Company’ is extremely sought after and collectible.

Being originally rolled (as issued) it displays to excellent effect with striking red background colour and eye-catching ‘Bettie Page’ (Gretchen Mol) imagery. Beautifully presented this scarce example represents a fine piece of original and desirable film movie memorabilia…Certainly a talking piece.
