  • Film: The Deer Hunter (1978)
    Year poster printed: 1979 (first theatrical release in Italy)
    Country: Italy
    Size: 55 in x 78 in (140 cm x 198 cm)

    This is an original Italian two-panel movie poster from 1979 for The Deer Hunter starring Robert De Niro, John Cazale, John Savage, Meryl Streep, Christopher Walken, and Chuck Aspegrent. Michael Cimino directed the Academy Award-winning film.

    The Deer Hunter was released in Italy on February 27, 1979 and played for several months. When the film won the Best Picture Academy Award in April, new posters were printed with a graphic indicating Oscar win. This rare poster was printed before the Academy Awards and has no awards graphic.

    Referred to in Italy as a 4 Fogli, this very large poster was printed in two sections that are designed to overlap. It measures 55” x 78” and is in very good to excellent condition with some minor wear around the edges of the poster. The poster was folded at the time of printing. Most folds flatten out nicely for framing and are often desirable for vintage, collectible movie posters. There are a few pinhole-size separations at a few of the cross-folds.

    Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). The small, black squares in the corners of the poster are magnets and not pins.

    This rare and extremely collectible movie poster, printed in 1979 to promote the initial Italian theatrical release of The Deer Hunter, is not a reprint or reproduction.
