Original British 11 inch x 8 1/4 inch Trade Advertisement from Cinema TV Today for the 1971 Jacques Tati Comedy TRAFIC starring Jacques Tati as Monsieur Hulot, Tony Knepper, Franco Ressel, Mario Zanuelli, Maria Kimberly, Marcel Fraval, Honoré Bostel and F. Maisongrosse.
In Trafic, Hulot is a bumbling automobile designer who works for Altra, a Paris auto plant. He, along with a truck driver and a publicity agent, Maria, takes a new camper-car (designed by Hulot) to an auto show in Amsterdam. On the way there, they encounter various obstacles on the road. Some of the obstacles that Hulot and his companions encounter are getting impounded by Dutch customs guards, a car accident (meticulously choreographed by the filmmakers), and an inefficient mechanic. In the film, “Tati leaves no element of the auto scene unexplored, whether it is the after-battle recovery moments of a traffic-circle chain-reaction accident, whether it a study of drivers in repose or garage-attendants in slow-motion, the gas-station give-away (where the busts of historical figures seem to find their appropriate owners) or the police station bureaucracy.”
The Advertisement is in very good condition.
