Original Saliva Films Special Size Poster (17x22). Very Rare. Rolled. Fine condition.

Original New Line Cinema Special Size Poster (17x22) for the John Waters crime comedy, DESPERATE LIVING (1977) starring Liz Renay, Mink Stole, and Susan Lowe. Subversive by nature, early Waters movies are purposely shocking if not repulsive. Every single character is this film is an unequivocal sociopath. Mink Stole is positively unbelievable in her role, seething with neurotic dementia from the start. Although perhaps tasteless and certainly outrageous, the film is ultimately warmhearted and uproariously funny. Originally folded, this very rare poster is now stored rolled and is in fine condition. This design, with the rat on a plate, is the original design for the poster. The film was shot in 16mm. It was premiered at the auditorium at the University of Baltimore. A few 35mm prints were made, and the film was shown in New York as a midnight movie. But most people saw it through film programs at universities or at art houses. This small poster was used for the 16mm distributions to these venues and is regarded as the desirable, original poster. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is authentic. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
