GRIM REAPER

£160.00

Original 1970s release British 20 inch x 30 inch Double Crown Poster for the 1962 début Bernardo Bertolucci Drama THE GRIM REAPER (LA COMMARE SECCA), written by Pier Paolo Pasolini and starring Francesco Ruiu, Lorenza Benedetti, Romano Labate, Alfredo Leggi and Emy Rocci.

Police detectives in Rome interrogate a series of potential suspects in their struggle to determine whom to arrest for the brutal murder of a beautiful prostitute whose body is discovered in a park on the day of a torrential rainstorm. One by one, the prime suspects, a girl-crazy teenager Nino, pickpocket Canticchia, a soldier on leave, a tourist and a pimp, recount the events of the day to the police, each insisting he is innocent.

Designed and produced by X 3 Posters – Bob Linney & Ken Meharg. Bob Linney and Ken Meharg originally had studios at the Arts Lab in Birmingham (an experimental arts centre in Birmingham), then at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) in London, then at their workshop at Butler’s Wharf, London (as X3 Posters) and then at their studio in Shoreditch, London (X3).

The poster is in very good unfolded (rolled) condition.
