Original U.S. Door Panel Posters Four 20x60 Posters Folded Fine Plus Condition
Original Warner Bros set of four 20x60 original door panels for the Max Baer directed film ODE TO BILLY JOE (1976). The film stars Robby Benson and Glynnis O'Connor. A few other films have been inspired by a country song, but perhaps none as famous as the red-hot single that knocked the Beatles' "All You Need is Love" off the number one spot on Billboard's Hot 100. The song was written by singer Bobbie Gentry, recorded by her for Capitol Records, and soared to number one on Billboard's Hot 100 charts, and stayed there for a month. And the song's allure and mystery have persisted through the decades. The movie was directed by Max Baer, who had famously played Jethro Bodine in TV's "The Beverly Hillbillies". No less a light than Michel Legrand was tapped to write the score for the film. Why did Billy Jo McAllister jump off the Tallahatchie Bridge? No spoilers here! The movie has its fans, but the real star of the film is a still remarkable song by Bobby Gentry. MovieArt will sell no reproduction posters.
