The final one-sheet poster artwork hand-painted by John Alvin for the promotion of Joe Dante's horror comedy Gremlins. The iconic final theatrical one-sheet featuring the tagline "Cute. Clever. Mischievous. Intelligent. Dangerous" was designed by Intralink Film Graphic Design with and featured artwork by famous Hollywood posterist Alvin.
This large painting of Gizmo (Howie Mandel) emerging from Billy Peltzer's (Zach Galligan) box is rendered in mixed media on canvas. The piece is symbolic of the more subtle film advertising style in the 1980s, which intended to engage the viewer by revealing very little of Gizmo. It also features a sly nod to Steven Spielberg's production company Amblin with the Amblin logo featuring Elliott and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on Billy's pants button.
This beautiful work comes mounted behind UV-filtering plexiglass in a white wooden frame and a black interior. The painting exhibits visible scuffing and white discoloration along its edges. Dimensions: 32" x 42" x 2.5" (81.5 cm x 106.75 cm x 6.5 cm)
