Get Carter (1971)

Lot #47 - Cinema Poster Live Auction - UK Quad Poster, 1971

Stock #125198

One of the truly great British film posters. An original 1971 UK Quad for Mike Hodges' iconic gangster film "Get Carter". The raw grittiness of Arnaldo's Putzu's artwork, the implied threat of the double barrelled shotgun, the unbridled violence of the fight scene and the uniformed policemen leave us in no doubt that Michael Caine (the titular 'Carter') is involved in a serious crime thriller. There is also of course, the 'flower power' psychedelic jacket which acts as a nod to firmly state that the 'peace and love' of the previous decade has been discarded for a much more realistic vision of the now 70's Britain. Originally folded (as issued) this full bleed, totally unrestored example displays and presents to excellent effect, with only very minimal handling and age wear. A highly prized and collectable film poster that proved to be a defining role for Michael Caine.
