FISTFUL OF DOLLARS
Original 1978 Re-Release German 33 inch x 46 inch Poster for the 1964 Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS, based on the classic Japanese Akira Kurosawa film “Yojimbo” and starring Clint Eastwood, Gian Maria Volonte, Marianne Koch, Wolfgang Lukschy, Sieghardt Rupp, Joe Edger, Margarita Lozano and Jose Calvo.
When a steely blue-eyed mercenary arrives in a dusty border town where two rival bands of smugglers terrorize the impoverished citizens, he pits the gangs against each other in one of the most exhilarating frontier adventure films in cinema history
The poster art is by Renato Casaro (born 1935). Casaro is considered to be one of the most important, influential and innovative Italian’s film poster artists producing hundreds of works dedicated to the cinema. In 1953, at the age of 18, he joined Studio Favalli, a famous design and art studio in Rome. Three years later he opened his own studio. In 1965 Dino De Laurentiis hired Casaro to design the poster images for the film The Bible: In the Beginning and he went on to design several more posters for De Laurentiis. His career then blossomed working for several different directors and film companies.
The poster is in very good folded condition with minor age discoloration.
