“Thunderbolt… the man with the reputation. Lightfoot… the kid who’s about to make one !”
Incredibly rare Clint Eastwood poster in this landscape format that is genuinely scarce. An original 1974 British UK quad film poster for Michael Cimino’s “Thunderbolt and Lightfoot”. This folded (as issued) example is presented in excellent original unrestored condition and displays and presents very well with magnificent finished artwork by Birney Lettick. The imagery borrows references from the “Dirty Harry” poster series utilising the elongated gun barrel with a nod to Andy Warhol for the stylised $ as a background…A classic 70’s early Clint Eastwood poster that represents a very collectible piece of original film movie memorabilia.
Trivia: The dangerous stunt where Clint Eastwood leapt onto a speeding car being driven by Jeff Bridges and hooks his leg inside the car window while holding onto the door handle was performed by Eastwood.…more detail
