The Day of the Locust

Hollywood: Paramount Pictures, 1975. Original British quad poster for the 1975 US film. Printed in England by Leonard Ripley.

One of the most haunting and truly underrated films of the 1970s, Schlesinger's "The Day of the Locust" translates Nathanael West's masterpiece into a dark, funny, and ultimately devastating commentary on the Hollywood system and its effect on the lives and dreams of an array of characters lost in it. Since its release, the film has come to be considered by many Donald Sutherland's finest performance, as well as a grand achievement in terms of script, cinematography, acting, and design. Nominated for two Academy Awards.

30 x 40 inches, folded as issued. Very Good plus, with staple holes to the top edge, and a notation in holograph ink on the verso.
