Description
Rated by "Premier Magazine" as one of the top film posters ever produced, this poster sports the famous double face/double mountain image. Michael Ritchie directed this skier's cult film about a young man (Robert Redford) making it to the U.S. Olympic Ski Team and his drive to win and be the best downhill racer in the world. His obsessiveness drives off everyone around him, including Gene Hackman, the coach of the U.S. team.“How fast must a man go to get from where he’s at ?”. Without doubt one of the most eye-catching and best sports (or film) posters ever designed. Attributed to Stephen Frankfurt and Philip Gips this original US style A one sheet from 1969 featuring "the kiss" is truly superb. Particularly sought after by skiing enthusiasts this represents a fine piece of sports / movie memorabilia that is becoming increasingly hard to find from a superior sports movie and one of the best skiing films ever made.
