Original 1994 Blue Dolphin Re-Release British 20 inch x 30 inch Double Crown Poster for the 1970 Donald Cammell & Nicolas Roeg Drama PERFORMANCE starring James Fox, Mick Jagger, Anita Pallenberg, Michèle Breton, Ann Sidney, John Bindon, Johnny Shannon, Anthony Valentine, Kenneth Colley, Stanley Meadows and Allan Cuthbertson.

Young gangster Chas Devlin (Fox) seeks refuge from the mob in a basement belonging to a reclusive, fading rock star Turner (Jagger).

Influenced by Ingmar Bergman’s “Persona” (1966) and the films of Alain Resnais, “Performance” introduced the fractured storytelling and editing style of cinematographer-turned-director Nicolas Roeg. Co-director and screenwriter Donald Cammell can be credited for the mind-bending, debauched tone, which so outraged Warner Bros that the studio shelved the film for two years. The use of colour is extraordinarily vivid, while the soundtrack incorporates Jack Nitzsche’s unnerving score alongside songs that include Jagger’s “Memo from Turner”.

The poster is in fine unfolded (rolled) condition
