London: Don Letts, 1979. Original handbill for the London premiere of the 1977 film documentary, held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Cinema Club, preceding the New York premiere of the film by nearly 10 months.
The definitive London punk documentary. Shot by Don Letts on 8mm film almost exclusively at The Roxy in Covent Garden, London, during the club's brief but blazing one-year existence. Featured in the film are some of the earliest performances by The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Wayne County, Johnny Thunders, and Billy Idol. Letts continued to edit the film after this showing, and the version that premiered in New York the following year ran 86 minutes. The most raw and timely documentary of the London punk scene--and certainly The Roxy itself--ever made.
8.25 x 11 inches. Near Fine.
