Blow-Up (sometimes known as "Blowup" or "Blow Up"), the 1967 Michelangelo Antonioni (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film) English/Italian/U.S. crime mystery thriller ("Michelangelo Antonioni's first English language film"; "Antonioni's camera never flinches. At love without meaning. At murder without guilt. At the dazzle and the madness of London today."; "Two fanatical teenagers on David Hemmings in the hope that he will use them as models."; about a successful photographer who feels completely detached from his photographs of violence and pain until he takes a photo of a couple in a park and discovers a possible murder) starring Vanessa Redgrave, David Hemmings, Sarah Miles, John Castle, Jane Birkin, Gillian Hills, and Veruschka von Lehndorff (billed as "Verushka" in her first film role, the Russian model who is featured on most of the posters from this classic Antonioni film!), and The Yardbirds (including Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck)

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that this movie was released in the U.S. by "Premier Productions", and it had its premiere on December 18, 1966, but it went into general release in 1967, and all of the domestic U.S. posters have a 1967 NSS number. Apparently, Premier Productions only owned the U.S. rights, so the international release was through MGM. There are one-sheets with NSS information and Premier Productions on them, with a line that reads "Recommended for mature audiences", and no mention of MGM, and those have "1SHEET - DOMESTIC" printed in the small writing at the bottom, and there are one-sheets without NSS information and with MGM credits and logo, and that poster does not have the rating line. The one-sheet offered here is from the international MGM release.
