Japanese B2 Film Poster
This fantastically bizarre Japanese poster offers some of the best artwork created to promote The Beatles 1968 hit psychedelic musical animation Yellow Submarine, with its optical illusions, lush visuals and colourful characters. Directed by George Dunning and inspired by the song of the same name, Yellow Submarine saw the cartoon Beatles take on the evil Blue Meanies to save Pepperland, against a soundtrack of their previous hits, together with four songs composed and recorded specifically for the film. This poster was issued for the first release of the film in Japan in 1969.
Unfolded, not backed. Minor nicks and creases, predominantly to corners and edges. Inconsistent ground colour to upper portion, as typically seen on examples of this poster. Image and colours otherwise excellent.
