    Clockwork Orange (1972)

    • This is an original, linen-backed, one-sheet movie poster from 1972 for the X-rated, theatrical release of A Clockwork Orange starring Malcolm McDowell, Patrick Magee, Adrienne Corri, Miriam Karlin, Warren Clarke, and James Marcus. Stanley Kubrick directed the classic science fiction drama based on the novel by Anthony Burgess. Philip Castle is the artist for the poster.

      A Clockwork Orange was originally released in the United States in early 1972 with an X rating however most theaters refused to screen X-rated films. Director Stanley Kubrick adjusted 30 seconds of the film and resubmitted the film to the MPAA. In August, the MPAA changed the rating to R and new posters were printed for this expanded release. This poster is from the very limited, initial X rated release.

      The poster measures 27” x 41” and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. Prior to backing, the poster was in good to very good condition with scattered, light surface creases, light surface scuffs, a few spots of light discoloration, and minor edge wear. It was folded at the time of printing and had creasing along the folds which slightly darkened with age.  The poster was backed in the European style with minimal restoration.  After backing, there was some paper loss along the top edge.

      Please look very closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you will receive). It is not a stock image. The black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.

      This rare and collectible poster, printed in 1972 to promote the X-rated theatrical release of A Clockwork Orange, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
