“The Dogs of War. The Best **** Mercenaries in the Business !”
The late 1970’s is generally regarded as a ‘golden’ age for explosive action movies at the cinema and in 1978 three of the greatest, hard drinking actors of their generation were signed up to star in Andrew V.McLaglen’s British actioner “The Wild Geese”. Released at a time to be considered politically incorrect it never achieved the success or praise it richly deserved but has since gone on to be a firm favourite with fans of gritty action genre films. The original 1978 UK quad movie poster offered here is from first year of release and displays and presents to excellent effect with some exceptional character driven artwork by Arnaldo Putzu. Originally folded (as issued) the colours are bright and unfaded and the imagery dramatic and exciting. With hardly a defect of note and minimal handling wear this beautiful film poster represents a truly outstanding example of rare and collectable original movie memorabilia from one of the best British action films of the late 70’s.
