Excellent like new condition 14" by 22" poster printed on heavy cardboard stock ink-screened reproduction. Show Press Hand Carved posters made in the USA for more than 125 years, Showprints have been produced for Rock & Roll's legends and for regional bands trying to get noticed. Showprints are handcrafted with old fonts and made one at a time using ancient printing teckniques. The hand set type and uneven registration give these concert posters and authenticity that's hard to replicate with today's modern technology. These Showprints were tacked to poles, placed in the front windows of storefronts and were plastered on the walls of neighborhood bars and restaurants. This must be shipped flat in a large flat parcel (Combined shipping on this item only allowed with other items that are shipped flat) and this is suitable for framing.**************PERFECT CONDITION HEAVY STOCK CARDBOARD POSTER. EASY RIDER STARRING PETER FONDA, DENNIS HOPPER WITH JACK NICHOLSON. RIDING THEIR HARLEY DAVIDSON PANHEAD I believe it is a 1952 Hydra glide. MOVIE POSTER.BLACK AND WHITE. POSTER MEASURES 14" BY 22", When films emblematic of the 1960s American counter-culture are mentioned, Easy Rider comes to the fore. Almost everything about this story of a motorcycle gang that travels across a landscape of alienation is hopelessly dated, yet the film remains a lot of fun. As one of the most popular films of its times, it both depicted and promoted a youth culture that centered around illicit drugs and rock music. More than any other movie, it established the career of Jack Nicholson, who won some critics' awards and an Oscar nomination as a supporting actor, and promoted the wild image of Peter Fonda. It is also one of Dennis Hopper's earliest directorial efforts and one of his first maniacal roles, though Hopper did not immediately capitalize on his success in either capacity. The psychedelic moments are priceless, and the sound track, featuring the Byrds, Steppenwolf, and other bands of the era, is golden. Few who came of age in the turbulent 1960s did not mark Easy Rider as one of their formative cultural experiences. INTRO: Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Jack Nicholson Tossing wristwatches away, two bikers hit the road to find America in Dennis Hopper's anti-establishment classic. After a major cocaine sale to an L.A. connection (Phil Spector), free-wheeling potheads Billy (Hopper) and Wyatt aka Captain America (Peter Fonda, who also produced) motor eastward to party at Mardi Gras before "retiring" to Florida with the riches concealed in Wyatt's stars-and-stripes gas tank. As they ride through the Southwest, they take a hitchhiker to a struggling hippie commune before they get thrown in a small-town jail for "parading without a permit." Their cellmate, drunken ACLU lawyer George Hanson (Jack Nicholson, replacing Rip Torn), does them a "groovy" favor by getting them out of jail and then decides to join them. Babbling about Venusians, George discovers the joys of smoking grass, but an encounter with Southern rednecks soon proves how right he is about the danger posed by Billy's and Wyatt's unfettered life in a country that has lost its ideals. With the straight world closing in, Wyatt and Billy try to revel in New Orleans with some LSD and hookers (Karen Black and Toni Basil), but the acid trip is shot through with morbidity. Once they reach Florida, Billy raves about attaining the American dream; Wyatt, however, knows the truth: "We blew it." Produced and directed by two Hollywood iconoclasts with under a half-million non-studio dollars, Easy Rider shook up the languishing movie industry when it grossed over $19 million in 1969; it captured the spirit of the times as it woke Hollywood up to the power of young audiences and socially relevant movies, along with such other landmarks of the late 1960s as Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduate, and 2001. Shot on location by Laszlo Kovacs, Easy Rider eschewed old-fashioned Hollywood polish for documentary-style immediacy, and it enhanced its casual feel with improvised dialogue and realistically "stoned" acting. With a soundtrack of contemporary rock songs by Jimi Hendrix, The Band, and Steppenwolf to complete the atmosphere, Easy Rider was hailed for capturing the increasingly violent Vietnam-era split between the counterculture and the repressive Establishment. Experiencing the "shock of recognition," youth audiences embraced Easy Rider's vision of both the attractions and the limits of dropping out, proving that audience's box office power and turning Nicholson into a movie star. The momentarily-hip Academy nominated Nicholson for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar, and Fonda, Hopper and Terry Southern for their screenplay. Though none of its imitators would match its impact, Easy Rider remains one of the seminal works of late '60s Hollywood both for its trailblazing legacy and its sharply perceptive portrait of its chaotic times. Easy Rider (1969) is the late 1960s "road film" tale of a search for freedom (or the illusion of freedom) in a conformist and corrupt America, in the midst of paranoia, bigotry and violence. Made in the year of the Woodstock concert, the tone of the film is remarkably downbeat and bleak, reflecting the collapse of the idealistic 60s. The iconographic film is both memorialized as an image of the popular and historical culture of the time and a story of a contemporary journey by two self-righteous, anti-hero bikers (a 'buddy' film) eastward through the American Southwest. Their trip to New Orleans takes them through limitless, untouched landscapes, various towns, and a hippie commune, but also through areas where local residents are increasingly narrow-minded and hateful of their long-haired freedom and use of drugs. The film's title refers to their rootlessness and ride to make "easy" money; it is also slang for a pimp who makes his livelihood off the earnings of a prostitute. Thank you for shopping with us.
