This is an original, previously-folded, humungous Japanese B0 movie poster from 1977 for the FIRST release of The Gauntlet.
Fantastic artwork by Frank Frazetta for Clint Eastwood film.
The Gauntlet is a 1977 American action thriller film directed by Clint Eastwood, who stars alongside Sondra Locke. The film's supporting cast includes Pat Hingle, William Prince, Bill McKinney, and Mara Corday. Eastwood plays a down-and-out cop who falls in love with a prostitute (Locke) whom he is assigned to escort from Las Vegas to Phoenix in order for her to testify against the mob. (Source Wikipedia)
In this size only a handful remain in the world. Japanese B0 posters are the rarest format and are 100.0 x 141.4 cm (39.4 × 55.7 inches.)
This poster was rare even in 1977. In 2021, this may be the only copy left. This type of poster usually never survives as they are torn down or pasted over with a new release.
This poster is in a good condition. It was previously folded, then rolled. It has some small pinholes. It has a tear - additional imagery provided. Please review the imagery as this is the exact poster that you will be purchasing.
For the fantastically rare chance to find this, a Certificate of Authenticity is included.
