An original vintage 1956 U.S theatrical one sheet for The Wild Party, an American crime film directed by Harry Horner and written by John McPartland. The film stars Anthony Quinn who plays an embittered ex-NFL pro Tom Kupfen, who has taken to hanging with a group of go-nowhere beatniks, including good-schoolgirl-gone-bad Honey (Kathryn Grant), hopped-up jazz musician Kicks Johnson (Nehemiah Persoff) and ticking time bomb Gage Freeposter (Jay Robinson). Together they drink, dabble in drugs and commit just enough petty thefts to support their lurid lifestyle. But when a con they try to pull on a couple of squares goes sour, the hip crooks get in way over their heads. Great imagery that fits and awesome script in this striking poster.
The Wild Party (1956)
Large (27" x 41") U.S one sheet
Good condition. Minor wear in the central folds as expected for a poster of this age. Light paper tears and general wear on the outer edges. Some nicks and scuffs in top left and right corners (in the black beyond the boarder black) from pin holes or staples. Creases across the middle folds where it has been folded incorrectly at some point.
