Saliva Films First Release Poster. 16mm non-theatrical distribution (11x17). Lightly folded. Very Fine Plus
The Indie film passed some kind of benchmark in 1972 when the Great Drag Queen Divine erupted in John Water's PINK FLAMINGOS. Divine shocked so much not from DOING necessarily, but from merely BEING -- although there was scandalous doings also. Here is the first poster ever distributed for PINK FLAMINGOS. This is the non-theatrical 16mm distribution poster - a tiny thing only 11 inches by 17 inches - which was provided to college film programs and other non-theatrical venues that wanted to show the movie. This example of the poster is in excellent condition, and although the poster was folded once (probably for the convenience of mailing), it has been stored rolled for years. Divine is seen living large in pink. Beware - this poster has been reproduced. That's not what this is -- this is the real deal. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this poster is the authentic first release poster for PINK FLAMINGOS. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
