The Wild Bunch Movie Poster

“Suddenly a new West has emerged. Suddenly it was sundown for nine men. Suddenly their day was over. Suddenly the sky was bathed in blood.”

A striking original first year of release 1969 UK quad film poster for Sam Peckinpah’s ultra-violent western “The Wild Bunch”. The Western genre would never be the same after this…Hugely influential in its depiction of bloody and graphic screen violence which at the time made it  hugely controversial and equally admired as much as it was hated when screened. The advertising campaign that accompanied its release largely used the same imagery; the gang of nine all facing away from the camera appearing to be striding off into the sunset or battle with only the colour palette used being changed for different countries. In Britain a stunning bright orange hue was used. Any paper from the film has always been somewhat scarce with British UK quad posters particularly hard to find. Totally original and unrestored this originally rolled (as issued) Style A. main design example displays to excellent effect with deep unfaded colour and represents a truly high grade piece of original highly collectable cinema movie memorabilia. A true cinematic masterpiece and one of the greatest action western films ever made, by one of the greatest exponents of the genre.
