It's not hard to believe this Federico Fellini classic has been continuously rated as one of cinema's Top 10 pictures, and was the late film critic Roger Ebert's favorite movie, claiming he'd seen it more than 25 times! Few directors are as revered and imitated as Fellini, a genuine master whose style of filmmaking mixed dreams and gritty reality with a touching sense of humanity.
This is a super rare UK quad from the 1958 first release in the UK. Akira Kurosawa's masterly retelling of the Macbeth story, set in feudal Japan. This poster was screen printed giving it particularly bright colours. Screen printing is often used as a more affordable alternative to traditional printing if the print run is very small, which helps explain why this is so rare.
