A 1978 Re-Release Vintage Theatrical Folded One-Sheet Movie Poster (measures 27" x 41") (Learn More)

The Wicker Man, the classic 1974 Robin Hardy English cult fantasy pagan religion melodrama ("Flesh to touch... Flesh to burn! Don't keep the Wicker Man waiting!"; "The residents of Summerisle invited Sergeant Howie to their traditional May Day festival. He didn't expect to meet... The Wicker Man"; "A totally corrupt shocker from the author of 'Sleuth' and 'Frenzy'!"; "Anthony Shaffer's incredible occult thriller"; "An island lost to unspeakable terrors of pagan rituals!"; about a police investigation involving a neo-pagan society on a remote Scottish isle, and their possible use of human sacrifice) starring Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento, Ingrid Pitt, and Christopher Lee ("as Lord Summerisle"). Note that this English film has a confusing history! Studio executives did not know how to market the film, and it was heavily-edited and released in England as part of a double-bill in 1974 (after a test screening in December of 1973). After Roger Corman declined to purchase the U.S. release rights, Warner Brothers did so and released the film to drive-in theaters in May and then shelved it in August. In 1977, Abraxas bought the U.S. rights, restored some of the edited footage and showed the film to theater owners (and perhaps had a single theatrical showing in New Orleans). We have never seen posters for this and likely none were created. In 1978, Summerisle Films sub-leased the movie from Abraxas and premiered it at the Telluride Film Festival before giving it a limited release in late 1978 and 1979. Summerisle Films went out of business in 1979 and Dynamite Entertainment and Abraxas gave the film another re-release in 1980 (with a one-sheet very similar to the Summerisle Films one-sheet).

Condition: very good to fine. There is a pinhole in each of the corners, and a second pinhole in the top right corner. There are creases and tiny surface scuffs down the vertical foldline and across the top and bottom horizontal foldlines. There are a few very minor creases throughout the poster and a few extremely tiny tears in the bottom of the left blank border. The poster is completely unrestored!
