STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE

Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1979 Robert Wise Sci-Fi Movie STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE starring William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols and George Takei.

When a destructive space entity is spotted approaching Earth, Admiral Kirk resumes command of the Starship Enterprise in order to intercept, examine, and hopefully stop it.

The poster art is by Robert “Bob” M. Peak (1927 – 1992).

Bob Peak is best known for his developments in the design of the modern American movie poster. He was born in Denver, Colorado and graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California in 1951. In 1961 United Artists hired Peak to design the poster images for the film West Side Story. The success of Peak’s work on that film led to work on posters for designer Bill Gold, including the big-budget musicals My Fair Lady and Camelot. In the mid-1970s Peak’s style would become familiar to fans of science fiction films when he created the poster art for the futuristic film Rollerball (1975), which was followed by the first five Star Trek films, Superman (1978), Excalibur (1981), Apocalypse Now (1979), The Spy Who Loved Me and other James Bond concepts.

The poster is in very good folded condition
