Easy Rider (1969)
27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm]
POSTER CONDITION & GRADING
Very Good, linen backed. Originally, no additional restoration of any kind occurred to this poster prior to linen backing. You can still see the odd scuff and stain but this poster was well backed and it now displays really well. In 2021 Flicks Film Posters subsequently carried out restoration to several areas of minor surface paper loss. This is the Cannes Film Festival style of this classic poster.
POSTER TAGLINE & DESCRIPTION
"A man went looking for America. And couldn't find it anywhere". THE counter culture classic that is now going higher and higher in critics' estimation. Famously reviewed by Leslie Halliwell in one of his indispensable guides as attracting "freakishly large" audiences. He was spot on - it opened up a crack in American cinema through which (albeit briefly) a new generation (Scorsese, Coppola, Demme, Spielberg, De Palma, Bogdanovich et al) scrambled headlong through. The decade of great cinema that followed has been unmatched in modern times. We have a lot to thank Hopper, Fonda and Nicholson for!
