Assassin of YouthPrice: £4,995 | Nominal size: US 1 sht - 27"X41" | Grade: Fine | Year: 1937
Note: This 1937 exploitation film from director Elmer Clifton details the alleged ill effects of cannabis or "marihuana" on America's youth. Similar to the better known Reefer Madness, the picture represents the exaggerated anti-drug propaganda of the time. This is a rare one sheet poster from the first release. Like many low budget, low circulation exploitation films, the poster was a hand drawn screen print produced in small numbers rather than printed on a regular machine press. This not only makes it much rarer than other movie posters, the process also gives the design stronger bolder colours. This example is in excellent original condition with no fading and minimal yellowing of the paper. There is a little edge wear at the corners and archival tape repairs to fold separations but these do not detract from the overall presentation and it looks stunning.
