This is an ORIGINAL Half-Sheet MOVIE POSTER - NOT A REPRODUCTION ! It was created for use in a theatre to promote the engagement of this Motion Picture in 1969!
This approx. 22x28" Movie Item:
THOSE DARING YOUNG MEN IN THEIR JAUNTY JALOPIES (AKA: MONTE CARLO OR BUST! ) ~ U.S. Half-Sheet Poster NSS# 69/218 -~ PARAMOUNT PICTURES ~ 1969
This delightful poster is in Very Good / Excellent condition. It has light corner, edge and surface wear. There's some tanning at the left center edge and some minor spotting. It has always been ROLLED - never folded.
This breezy, colorful poster from the popular comedy shows the film's star TONY CURTIS, hanging from the undercarriage of co-star SUSAN HAMPSHIRE's Roadster, which dangles precariously over a cartoonish cliff. Multi-colored cartoon cars race bumper-to-bumper across the bottom credits while, on the right, multi-color photos from the film show action and comedy scenes and a nice photo of CURTIS, too.
The film's cartoons, stylized logo and title intentionally recall director KEN ANNAKIN's earlier comedy hit, THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES and, like that film, JALOPIES boasts an International All-Star cast: BOURVIL , LANDO BUZZANCA , WALTER CHIARI , PETER COOK , TONY CURTIS , MIREILLE DARC , MARIE DUBOIS , GERT FROBE , SUSAN HAMPSHIRE , JACK HAWKINS , NICOLETTA MACHIAVEL , DUDLEY MOORE , PEER SCHMIDT , ERIC SYKES and TERRY-THOMAS.
The poster includes the following text:
"HILARITY SHIFTS INTO HIGH GEAR!"
"A RACE FOR GLORY, FOR LOVE AND FOR THE FUN OF IT!
Skirts Were On The Way Up,
Necklines On The Way Down,
And the Whole World Was On It's Car-Crazy Way
to Monte Carlo -Or Bust!"
The accompanying photo shows this actual item.
There may be clips visible in the photos, variously at the four corners and the top and/or bottom center edges. These are not a flaw in or a part of this item. All rights reserved for original photos, artwork and text.
