This is an original, half-subway theatrical movie poster from 1975 to promote the theatrical release of The Day of the Locust. The film stars Donald Sutherland, Karen Black, William Atherton, Burgess Meredith, Richard Dysart, John Hillerman, and Geraldine Page. John Schlesinger directed the film based on the novel by Nathanael West. David Edward Byrd is the artist for the poster.
The poster measures 30” x 45” and is in good to very good condition with some minor edge wear and a small tear in the center of the bottom, white edge. The poster, printed for use in the New York subway system, was folded at the time of printing and has minor fold and cross-fold wear. It has been stored flat for many years and will be rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image. The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.
This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1975 to promote the theatrical release of The Day of the Locust, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
