A very rare 1979 U.S. theatrical release movie poster for Quadrophenia, a classic mods and rockers coming of age film with all the defiant, drug-fueled Mod subculture of early 1960s. The film was originally conceived by Pete Townshend during the mod revival of the early ’70s, the album and film were inspired by the true-life tragedy of a young mod committing suicide off the tip of Beachy Head.
Phil Daniels, puts in a superb raw angst-ridden performance as Jimmy, a young Mod who loves to party, take amphetamines, ride his scooter around and brawl with the Rockers. Musician Sting plays Ace Face, the cool as hell flamboyant scooter-riding Mod of all Mods.
This hard to find style B poster design with the main cast shown in a line has been mimicked in many other films like, The Usual Suspects and This Is England. This is a British classic!
