Film: The Color Purple (1985)
Year poster printed: 1986
Size: 27”x 40”
Artist: John Alvin
This is a very rare, unfolded style B movie poster from 1985 for The Color Purple starring Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, Oprah Winfrey, Margaret Avery, Adolph Caesar, Rae Dawn Chong and Laurence Fishburne. Steven Spielberg directed the film based on the novel by Alice Walker. John Alvin created the artwork on the poster.
The single-sided poster measures 27" x 40" and is in good to very good condition with minor edge wear. It has never been folded.
The film had a very limited release in New York and Los Angeles in December 1985 before being released widely in February 1986. This poster features quotes from several reviews from that December release.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). This collectible poster, printed in early 1986 to promote the initial wide release of The Color Purple, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
