RITZ

£49.50

Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1976 Richard Lester Crime Comedy THE RITZ, based on the play by Terrence McNally and starring Jack Weston, Rita Moreno, Jerry Stiller, Kaye Ballard and F. Murray Abraham.

In a gay bathhouse in Manhattan, unsuspecting businessman Gaetano Proclo, a heterosexual, has taken refuge from his homicidal brother-in-law Carmine Vespucci, a mobster. Proclo uses Vespucci’s name on the register. In the bathhouse, Gaetano stumbles across an assortment of oddball characters, including a rabid chubby chaser, go-go boys, a squeaky-voiced detective, and Googie Gomez, a third-rate entertainer with visions of Broadway glory who mistakes him for a famous producer and whom he mistakes for a man in drag. Further complications arise when Gaetano’s wife Vivian tracks him down and jumps to the wrong conclusions about his sexual orientation.

Printed by W.E. Berry Ltd., Bradford

The poster is in good folded condition with tape stains on the reverse of some of the folds which bleed through slightly.
