Original One Panel (47 X 63 Inches)
This French grande of one of the most enduring race films ever made has more going for it than first glance might suggest. The fine French artist, Rene Ferracci, has worked some clever magic blending both photographs and subtle artwork together. The name and title push across the poster trailing speed graphic lines, while the iron willed and fearless visage of a larger than life Steve McQueen squints in a flint eyed stare at the racetrack with the cars just roaring into the dawn. Ferracci uses his painted circular orbs on the left and right to echo director Lee Katzin's wonderful cinematic flashback sequence early in the film.
