Product Description

Original Very Rare Silkscreen Special Poster (34x47). United States Premiere Poster. Very fine to Near Mint condition. Sold with a copy of THE ROLLING STONES 50; Hyperion Press; 2012.

Original silkscreen Special Poster (34x47) for the Jean-Luc Godard documentary/concert film/dramatic polemic, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL (1969) starring The Rolling Stones and narrated by Sean Lynch. Known as ONE PLUS ONE in Britain, this hybrid drama-documentary intersperses scenes of The Rolling Stones recording their landmark anthem for the very popular Beggar's Banquet album with segments concerning the Black Panthers, an African-American revolutionary organization, with special attention on heroes like LeRoi Jones and Eldridge Cleaver. The film had no distributor in the United States, but a theater owner in Ann Arbor wanted to exhibit the film. There were no promotional materials available for the film; so, the exhibitor, who had some experience in poster production, decided to create his own poster for the film. Originally a press run of around 100 copies of the silkscreen were produced, but today only a few copies have survived. This very rare original silkscreen special poster is in very fine to near mint condition. Several of these have been auctioned recently, but none have enjoyed this superior condition. New Line Cinema reproduced the poster for its initial distribution after acquiring the rights, but those posters are printed differently and lack the panache of the original edition. This poster is sold with a copy of THE ROLLING STONES 50, a sensational hardback illustrated history of the band, published by Hyperion Press in 2012. The book will be sent upon full acceptance of the poster.
