This is an original, rolled, pre-awards, Italian locandina 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 award graphics.
The poster measures 13” x 27.5” and is in excellent, unused condition with minimal wear from long-term storage. Unlike most locandina posters from this period, it has never been folded.
Please look closely at the photo (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
This very rare and collectible movie poster, printed in 1979 to promote the Italian theatrical release of The Deer Hunter, is not a reprint or reproduction.
