The Thomas Crown Affair Poster

UK Quad cinema poster for "The Thomas Crown Affair" (1968).

If you're a Steve McQueen fan or collector, this is one of THE Steve McQueen posters to have. McQueen's starring role added to his reputation as "The King of Cool". "The Thomas Crown Affair" was a commercial & critical success upon release in 1968, featuring not only McQueen but also Faye Dunaway, like McQueen at the peak of her career. The UK release required something special & London based Italian artist, Arnaldo Putzu, certainly delivered, the clashing colours echoing contemporary 1960's Pop-Art influences. The Putzu illustration was based on a design by fellow artist John Stockle (for more information, please see Sim Branaghan's book "British Film Posters" (2006).

Although "The Thomas Crown Affair" garnered numerous awards, the only Oscar won was for "Best Song", this for the theme song "Windmills of Your Mind". Sung by Noel Harrison (son of actor Rex Harrison) & composed by Michel Legrand, this haunting track went top 10 in the UK & clearly the distributors wanted to capitalise on the "buzz", referencing the track twice on the poster with added yellow stickers.

Poster folded with a single conservation tape reinforcement to the reverse of one crossfold but overall in excellent condition & an increasingly scarce totally original & un-restored example of this poster.

NB. A supplementary P&P charge will be required for overseas buyers.
