Wild Bunch, The

Lot #310 - Cinema Poster Live Auction - Howard Kazanjian Collection: US One-Sheet Poster, 1969

Stock #124851

A US One-Sheet movie poster for Sam Peckinpah’s ultra-violent western “The Wild Bunch” (1969). The genre would never be the same after this. Hugely influential in its depiction of bloody and graphic screen violence, which at the time made it controversial and equally admired as much as it was hated when screened. The advertising campaign that accompanied its release largely used the same imagery; the gang of nine all facing away from the camera appearing to be striding off into the sunset or battle with only the colour palette used being changed for different countries, with the US One-Sheet using a calm-before-the-storm blue tone. The poster carries a "DOMESTIC" stamp to the reverse indicating the poster was meant to be used in the USA. (Provenance: The personal collection of Howard Kazanjian)
