A rare and sought after Japanese B2 poster for The Beatles' first full-length feature film A Hard Day's Night, which followed the fab four over an anarchic 36 hours in London at the height of Beatlemania. Director Richard Lester's snappy editing and energetic pacing gave the film a uniquely modern documentary style and led to the development of the music video. Considered one of the most influential musical films ever made, the offbeat sixties classic is often voted among the top 100 films of the 20th century. Offering some of the best and certainly the quirkiest artwork created to promote the film, this vibrant and joyful poster can't help but make you grin.
Very good (B+)
Unfolded, not backed. Minor nicks and creases to corners and edges. A few tiny brown spots and a few tiny spots of retouching to white ground around YEAH!. Some darkening to upper left corner. Two small quarter inch tears to lower edge. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
