Pacific Grove Films Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Very Fine Condtion

Pacific Grove Films Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster for the martial arts film SHANGHAI CONNECTION. Little is known about this particular film. The film stars martial arts actors Tang Pao-Yun, Chang Yu (although the name may be misspelled on the poster as Chang Yi), and Chen Hung-Lieh (again, misspelled as Chen Hou Lieh). It has been suggested to us that this poster might be a poster for the film ON THE WATERFRONT (1972) - not to be confused, of course, with the famous Marlon Brando film. This is plausible because the three principal actors of that film are listed on this poster. So it is quite likely that this is a U.S. re-release of ON THE WATERFRONT (1972). MovieArt Austin purchased the contents of a theater that played many of the more obscure martial arts films. Most of these films were made in Asia. While online databases can give some information about the films and about the distribution for the films in the U.S. it is also true that some of the lesser known films can have sketchy information. Most of the posters that we acquired were, as we have said, theater-used, folded, and should be regarded as average-used conditions. When a posterÕs condition exceeds this standard, we have said so and also we have stated when a poster has problems that exceed this. What we do know about these posters, including this one, is that all of these posters are vintage and authentic U.S. posters for these films. Sometimes the size may vary from standard one-sheet size, and we will so state when that is the case. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
