Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Very Fine Condition

Universal Pictures Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41), folded, for the science fiction film BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (1978). Following in the godlike footsteps of STAR WARS (1977), Universal wanted to get in on the act. They had a not so secret weapon, used in EARTHQUAKE (1974) and MIDWAY (1976). It was Sensurround, a surround sound process that bombarded the theater with very loud sound and low-frequency rumblings. Want to learn more about it? Read the "Sensurround" entry in wikipedia. The was directed by Richard A. Colla and starred Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict and BONANZA papa Lorne Greene. The film was really the pilot to the TV series released theatrically. So the TV series really spawned the movie rather than the normal case where a successful film inspired a TV show. Producer Glen A. Larson had begun his career singing in the vocal group The Four Preps, but he was a adept in show business, especially TV where he developed several series, including Alias Smith and Jones, Battlestar Galactica, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Quincy, M.E., The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, B. J. and the Bear, The Fall Guy, Magnum, P.I. and Knight Rider. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. one-sheet for this film.
