Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Very Fine Condition

Columbia Pictures Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41), folded, for the Melvin Van Peebles directed film WATERMELON MAN (1970). The film stars Godfrey Cambridge, Estelle Parsons, Howard Caine, D'Urville Martin, and Paul Williams. The film concerns a white man who wakes up one morning to discover that his skin has turned dark. Melvin Van Peebles was influenced by two books for this film. One was John Howard Griffin's autobiographical best-seller BLACK LIKE ME. The other was Franz Kafka's METAMORPHOSIS. This stew was stirred by the comedy writer Herman Raucher to create this lively comedy. Godfrey Cambridge died six years after this film was completed. He is one of the geunine treasures of the sixties counter-culture / black culture. MovieArt Original Film Posters in Austin, Texas guarantees that this film is an authentic U.S. poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
