Original U.S. One-Sheet Poster (27x41) Folded Re-release of 1979

Warner Bros Original Re-release poster, dating from 1979, for the second release of the classic concert film WOODSTOCK (1970), directed by Maurice Wadleigh. The film needs no introduction to most people and this poster is completely different from the original. Considered by many critics to be the best music documentary of all time, others consider it to be one of the very best documentaries ever filmed on any subject. It is a very intimate look at the Woodstock Music and Art Festival held in Bethel, New York in 1969 and in a broader sense a record of the 1960's "hippy" culture or, as they were often called, the "counterculture." Peace, love, and music were the themes of the day, and many of the performances are nothing short of amazing. Jimi Hendrix (complete with his frenzied version of "The Star Spangled Banner"), Country Joe and the Fish, Joan Baez, The Who, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash are just some of the legendary performers immortalized in this film. It deservedly won the Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary, as well as being nominated for Best Editing and Best Sound. This poster is considerably less pricey that any of the original styles from 1979. Condition is fine. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
