Mick Jagger as “Ned Kelly”

$850.00 AUD

U.S.A. : United Artists Corporation, 1970. Cinema poster, printed on two sheets 133 x 103 cm / 67 x 103 cm, as issued, overall dimensions 200 x 103 cm, evidently one of 184 posters which were printed in this large format, with the printer’s unique serial number 70/184 stamped bottom right and on verso; unbacked, original folds, in perfectly preserved condition (carefully folded and stored since 1970!).

Original American two-sheet poster for Tony Richardson’s controversial 1970 film, Ned Kelly, which starred Mick Jagger in the title role – a performance which Jagger has to all intents and purposes disowned. (Jagger also sang The Wild Colonial Boy for the soundtrack, possibly his most embarrassing recording moment). The British-Australian production was a commercial failure, and the film is one of Richardson’s least critically acclaimed. However, these facts in no way diminish the graphic power of this spectacular poster.
