Original U.S. 40"x60" poster.
Design by Philip Gips and Steve Frankfurt at Frankfurt Gips Balkind.
The 40"x60" format was printed in very small quantities compared to the paper 1 Sheet and was discontinued entirely by the mid-1980s.
This scarce and impressive deluxe card poster is an unmatched showcase for the famous artwork.
Though often attributed to Steve Frankfurt, there is a strong claim that the tagline 'In space no one can hear you scream' - one of the most famous in cinema history - was the creation of Philip Gips' wife Barbara. Frankfurt also designed the poster for 'Rosemary's Baby' and anyone familiar with that will recognise a similar use of green here.
