Roadracers - Original Movie Poster, USA 1959 - Allard
One of my favourite all-time posters, with the (fairly) accurate portrayals of some of my favourite cars: the Allard J2, Ferrari 166MM Barchetta, and the '50s Porsche Speedster.
The movie itself was pretty mush a blah-blah plot, but there were some excellent racing sequences, albeit in B&W.
The colours on this original US '1 Sheet' are very strong, the folds and borders are good, and there is a patina of cinema use: a couple of repaired (from the rear) closed tears, with a few pinholes, a little border wear, and very small creases, all of which give impeccable provenance. If you're looking for immaculate, this isn't it. Find one and you could pay hundreds more.
What it is, is a wonderful period piece with period patina. I will gladly discuss condition detail with you if desired.
This poster is a must have for motor/movies fan.
