“Heroes. Giants. Villains. Wizards. True Love. – Not just your basic, average, everyday, ordinary, run-of-the-mill, ho-hum fairy tale.”
A very COOL poster for a much loved action adventure fantasy romance. This original “The Princess Bride” movie poster has it all; amazing artwork by Steve Crisp for Hat ART Design, great detail & super colours. It is also very rare and one of the scarcest movie posters from the 80’s to find. The original UK quad movie poster offered here is from first year of release, 1987 and displays to excellent effect. Originally folded (as issued) it is presented in beautiful near perfect unrestored condition and could truly be considered investment grade quality. A genuinely rare fantasy classic cinema poster that represents extremely desirable and collectable movie memorabilia, especially if you are a fan of Heroes, Giants, Wizards & True Love (& let’s face it who isn’t).
