Trading Places



“They’re not just getting rich… They’re getting even.”

Directed by John Landis and starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Ackroyd “Trading Places” is one of the strongest comedies of the 1980’s and stands as some of the best work for the main participants. With impressive artwork by Adrian Purkis the film poster that accompanied the release is a very clever design and one of the most memorable and best of the comedy genre. The original 1983 UK (British) one sheet movie poster offered here was originally rolled (as issued) & presents in excellent unrestored condition with great colours and outstanding artwork. A very rare poster and genuinely scarce in this British portrait format that represents a highly very collectible & desirable original film memorabilia from a film lauded as a modern comedy classic and poster artwork that is such great fun !

Trivia: In 2010, as part of the Wall Street Transparency and Accountability Act, which was to regulate financial markets, a rule was included which barred anyone from using secret inside information to corner markets, similar to what the Duke brothers tried to do in the movie. Since the movie inspired this rule, it has since become known as the Eddie Murphy Rule.
