One of the finest movie posters to be produced in recent years, street artist Shepard Fairey's dazzling design for the teaser campaign of 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line is a triumph, depicting Joaquin Phoenix as the rebellious country music legend in dark silhouette against a fiery background, paying homage to hit song Ring of Fire. At it's heart a love story between Cash and fellow country music star June Carter, played by Reese Witherspoon, the film is a rollercoaster ride from traumatic childhood to country music stardom, through descent into addiction until Cash is saved from self-destruction by long-term love June. With remarkable performances from Phoenix and Witherspoon, both of whom performed their own vocals, the film was nominated for five Oscars at the 78th Academy Awards, including Best Actor for Phoenix and Best Actress for Witherspoon, which she won. There are two versions of the style A teaser one-sheet, with November in either a lighter or darker colour - this is the light November version.
Excellent (A- to A)
Unfolded, not backed. A handful of light handling dings. Image and colours excellent.
