BULLITT THREE SHEET (1968)$10,000.00
Vintage original 41 x 81 (103 x 203 cm.) three sheet poster, USA. Steve McQueen, Robert Vaughn, Jacqueline Bisset, Don Gordon, Robert Duvall, dir: Peter Yates; Warner Brothers. The classic 1960s action-crime thriller, with an iconic performance by Steve McQueen playing the San Francisco cop who becomes obsessed with finding the underground leader responsible for the deaths of witnesses in his protection.
Here is one of the finest and most rare posters for this classic title. This example does not appear to have ever been used. Prior to expert linen backing, it showed only very minor shelf wear and shows just minor shelf wear, such as three minor fold juncture separations, a bit of creasing at the very edges and a few minor spots of soiling in the white background.
What makes this poster particularly desirable is the fact that the colors match correctly (although this poster does not turn up much — when it occasionally does, very often the bottom section has colors which are misaligned with the rest, and that most often requires restoration with paint. This copy is unrestored, with great, nicely matched colors), and all the very minor original issues have been attended to in conservation. The poster is now just about as clean and bright an example as possible. FINE. 10,000.00
