The Godfather revived Marlon Brando's fading career, and gave rise to many other actors including Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Talia Shire, John Cazale and Diane Keaton. British posters for the movie are always in high demand, as they show a blood red profile of Brando against a black background, much more visually interesting than the black and white, letters only, American version.
The so-called 'red face' style of poster for The Godfather was designed in the UK and subsequently widely used across the world. It is the rarest and most desirable variant for this multi Oscar-winning masterpiece from Francis Ford Coppola. This poster is from the film's first release, folded as issued. This poster is an excellent candidate for linen backing to look great.
