The Italian Job - Original Italian 2 sheet. Mini Cooper, Michael Caine
The Italian Job - this is an Original Italian 2 sheet featuring the Mini Cooper, Michael Caine, Maggie Blye and the background street map of Turin.
I was exhibiting at a show in the UK a few years ago when a young mum ambled by with a very tiny toddler perched on her shoulders. I had the Original UK poster for The Italian Job on the wall, and the mum said to the toddler “What do you say now ?” to which the little one piped up: “You’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off !”. Mother’s response : “Bloody Daddy”. Full details here: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064505/?ref_=nv_sr_2
Anyway, this 1969 poster measures c.39 x 55 inches, as opposed to the smaller pic on this page, which is the original 'quatrofoglio' and is twice the size. It's also for sale here at Drivepast.
Condition of this two sheet is excellent, very lightly patinated, and folded as issued. The size and clarity of the 5 colour stills, make this for me the best of all the ' Italian Job ' posters.
P,S. Sorry about my usual cack photography.
Origin: Italy 1969 Size: 55 x 39 in / 140 x 99 cm Condition: Excellent
