Rare Film Posters

STARFLIGHT ONE

Original British 30 inch by 40 inch Quad poster for the 1983 Jerry Jameson Sci-Fi Movie STARFLIGHT ONE starring Lee Majors, Hal Linden, Lauren Hutton and Ray Milland.

Starflight One is the first ‘hypersonic’ commercial passenger plane and it can make the flight from New York to London in a mere four hours. On its maiden flight, a minor disaster happens, resulting in the plane leaving the Earth’s atmosphere and orbiting around the globe. A lack of heat-resistant tiling stops the plane from simply returning in the atmosphere. With oxygen and time running out, the crew of the plane and the crew on the ground must find out a way to bring back the plane and its passengers to safety.

Poster art by Josh Kirby (1928 – 2001). A commercial artist born on the outskirts of Liverpool in the town of Waterloo, Lancashire he studied at Liverpool City School of Art from 1943 until 1948 and settling in London in around 1951. His professional freelance career started in the early 1950s when Kirby illustrated film posters for studios in both London and Paris. In the 70s, Kirby returned to film poster art for publicity agency FEREF. Working alongside designer Eddie Paul, Kirby depicted the characters for Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, The Beastmaster and Krull, among many others.
