Original British Quad (30 X 40 Inches)
This UK Quad poster for "Le Mans" (1971), is one of the most collectable Steve McQueen film posters. Tom Jung's striking illustration incorporates a red/white/blue color scheme that nods to both the US "Stars & Stripes" and the French "Tricoloure" in an attempt to appeal to a wider global audience, certifying the Le Mans quad as an iconic piece. However, this quad is one of the rare "ABC" variants that places negative space above the main illustration, where the details for release in specific ABC cinemas could be printed. As such, this particular poster would have been used at a cinema in Scunthorpe for the film's first release in Oct 1971.
