Original Allied Artists One Sheet Poster for the 1977 re-release of the Franklin J. Schaffner prison biography, PAPILLON (1973) starring Steve McQueen, Dustin Hoffman, and Victor Jory. The first release of the movie was in 1974. Based on a true story, Papillon (McQueen) is a petty criminal who is wrongly convicted of murder and sentenced to life in a penal colony in French Guiana. With unforgettable performances, shocking action scenes, and psychological twists, and a screenplay by Lorenzo Semple, Jr., and Dalton Trumbo, PAPILLON is certainly one of the most memorable prison films ever made. This original one sheet poster is in very fine condition. And although it does not date from the first release, it has different art, created by the great illustrator Richard Amsel. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. poster for this movie. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
