Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1978. Original British quad poster for the 1978 US film. Printed in England by Leonard Ripley and Company, with explosive Pontiac Firebird artwork, far more energizing than the US variant posters.

As a tribute to stuntmen and women, particularly Buddy Joe Hooker and his family, Reynolds plays Hooper, "Hollywood's Greatest Stuntman, the coordinator on an action film in production, and lives with his girlfriend Gwen (Field). He is coerced into performing for charity, where he meets upcoming stuntman Delmore (Vincent), and the two strike a friendly rivalry. Together they attempt a death-defying final "gag" (stunt): jump a rocket-propelled Firebird over a ravine.

Nominated for an Academy Award. One of the earliest feature films to make use of the "blooper" reel at the credit roll.

30 x 40 inches, folded as issued. Near Fine.
