A 1974 Re-Release Vintage Theatrical Folded One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 27" x 41") (Learn More)

Born Losers (released in Italy as "Violence"), the 1967 Tom Laughlin (billed as "T.C. Frank") AIP motorcycle biker gang thriller ("Kitten on Wheels with Her Bike... Her Boots and Bikini!"; "Out for kicks... in for trouble! She's going to Join the... Born Losers"; "Which one of you cats is first?"; "with her bike... and her boots... and her bikini... she's out for kicks and in for trouble!!!") starring Tom Laughlin (in his first appearance "as Billy Jack"), Elizabeth James, Jeremy Slate, William Wellman Jr., and Jane Russell (billed as "Special Guest Star Jane Russell"). Note that this was a typical 1960s biker movie, EXCEPT that Tom Laughlin the director appears as "Billy Jack", the ultra cool part Indian peaceful martial arts expert, and the movie did not attract a lot of attention, but after Laughlin produced, starred in, directed, and wrote "Billy Jack" in 1971, this movie was given a major re-release in 1974, and all new posters were created highlighting Laughlin's first appearance as Billy Jack! Also note that the IMDb refers to this movie as "The Born Losers", but all of the original advertising refers to it as just "Born Losers", except for posters from Japan!

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that when this movie was first released, it was basically a cheap motorcycle movie, that just happened to have a minor character named Billy Jack (which it had because Tom Laughlin who played Billy Jack was also the director). The public loved the character Billy Jack, and Tom Laughlin then made a movie about that character (again, starring himself), and because it was so well received, "Born Losers" was given a full scale re-release, and this time, Tom Laughlin was credited under his real name as the director and star, and he dominated the posters for that re-release, even though he was credited only as "Starring Tom Laughlin" and as director under the pseudonym "T.C. Frank" for the original release.

Condition: good. There are creases and scuffs throughout the poster. There is paper loss in the lower right corner of the poster.
