Sweeney Poster

A fascinating EMI pre-release foldout publicity brochure for "Sweeney!" (1977).


Measuring an impressive 11"x 28", the inside reveals Frank Langford's alternative artwork for the film (note the image of the printed Quad below for comparison). Whilst the romantic embrace was carried over onto the poster, Langford tightened the John Thaw likeness. The image of the face-covered thug with the baseball bat also made it to the poster but a number of other elements were dropped. Nonetheless, this was a powerful & effective piece of illustration by Langford & is rarely seen in the market. Would look good framed.
