FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! (1965) One sheet poster
Vintage original 41 x 27″ (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Tura Satana, Haji, Lori Williams, Ray Barlow, Sue Bernard, dir: Russ Meyer; Eve Productions. One of the most famous ground-breaking films of all time and one of the films which broke down the walls of the legion of decency Production Code, which had influenced the way films had been made for more than 30 years. It was the theme and the suggestion which had the office up in arms. Though there was no nudity, the film broke many taboos and made way for the dissolving of the stringent code rules within a few years.
This was Russ Meyer’s ode to the violence of women. Tura Satana, Haji, and Lori Williams were the finest of sexy, tough villainesses. The story concerned three strippers, who encounter a couple in the desert. The thrillseeking vixens kidnap the girl, then descend upon a crippled old man who supposedly is sitting on cash. They taunt and seduce his sons as they try to find the money. Not terribly successful upon first release, it is now a cult classic.
Poster is on linen and pinholes at corners and fold lines and fold junctures have been touched up. There is an area of spotting at the bottom left of the poster, in the white back ground of the title treatment and in the blank white area below. NEAR FINE.
