Description:

A quite scarce German Movie Poster for Sam Peckinpah’s 1973 western masterpiece, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, starring James Coburn, Kris Kristofferson, and Bob Dylan. The film centers around an aging Pat Garrett who is hired by a group of wealthy New Mexico cattle barons to kill his old friend Billy the Kid who had escaped from jail. In the film, soon after his arrival, Billy is confronted by three strangers looking to kill him. All three assailants are killed in a shootout where Billy is aided by a fourth stranger named "Alias" (Bob Dylan) who kills one of the assailants by knifing him in the neck. Dylan composed a number of songs for the movie's score and soundtrack album "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid" which was released in the same year as the movie. The film was nominated for two BAFTA Awards: for Film Music (Bob Dylan) and Most Promising Newcomer (Kris Kristofferson), as well as for a Grammy as Album of Best Original Score (Bob Dylan). The soundtrack includes the classic Dylan song "Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door," which was a huge international hit. The film also was notable for continual behind-the-scenes battles between Peckinpah and the production company Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Shortly after its completion, the film was taken out of Peckinpah's control and was substantially re-edited at MGM's insistence, resulting in a shortened version being released to theaters. [This re-edited version was largely disowned by the film's cast and crew.] Ultimately, Peckinpah's original version was released on video in 1988 and many critics declaring the Peckinpah version to be one of the era's best films. The poster is in about Near Fine condition with pin holes near the corners and slight wear to the poster's top edge. The poster shows the original folds from its original shipment. QUITE SCARCE.
