Columbia Pictures Original U.S. 40x60 Poster Rolled Average Used Condition

Original Columbia Pictures U.S. 40x60 poster for the Martin Scorsese classic thriller, TAXI DRIVER (1976) starring Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd, and Harvey Keitel. Art by Belgian airbrush artist Guy Peellaert . This wonderful piece of cinema history deals with a mentally unstable Vietnam veteran (De Niro), who works as a nighttime taxi driver in New York City, where decadence and sleaze feed his overwhelming desire to lash out and also to save a teenage prostitute (Foster). In this masterpiece of urban alienation, Paul Schrader's iconic script paints a portrait of hopeless loneliness in the largest city in the world. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Original Score for Bernard Hermann, Best Actress for Foster, and Best Actor for De Niro. 40x60 Posters are much scarcer than one-sheet posters or other smaller sizes. We have seen maybe 10 or 12 of these over the years. The poster was used in a theater and shows signs of general use. This example was used in a theater, and there is a tear in the upper left area that intrudes into the image. This poster could certainly be restored as the basic colors are vivid.
