Original U.S. One Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Very Fine Condition
Original U.S. one sheet poster for the Alan Parker directed film BIRDY (1984) starring Matthew Modine and Nicholas Cage. The film was based on a 1978 novel of the same name by William Wharton. The story is set in the sixties and follows the friendship of two boys from high school to VietNam and beyond. Parker had turned down the directorial chore when he was first approached, but after the rights were purchased by A&M records, a new script was written and he decided to sign on. Modine plays a kid who is obsessed with birds. His obsession borders on affecting his mental health. Cage is his pal, a bit of a caretaker. But taking care of Birdy, as Modine's character comes to be known, is tricky. Music for the film was provided by Peter Gabriel. Much anticipated, the film died in North America. But the movie boosted the career of both actors and set up Modine to be a natural to cast in Kubrick's FULL METAL JACKET (1987.) This poster is folded and we have graded it in very fine condition. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees this poster to be vintage, authentic, original. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
