TITLE: JET PILOT
FORMAT: British Quad (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: John Wayne, Janet Leigh, Jay C. Flippen. Director: Josef von Sternberg.
NOTES: The 'Duke' plays a Cold War pilot who is assigned to escort a defecting pilot from the USSR. The Russian pilot turns out to be a girl, and a pretty one at that. What's worse is that she has a scheme to lure him to Russia. John Wayne, a communist? Never on your life! Howard Hughes produced this Joseph von Sternberg directed film on a big budget at the height of the American obsession with the perceived communist threat. This POSTER is for an early re-release (or a late printing of the first release poster) and has fewer colours than that used for the first printing. Still, a scarce POSTER for what was a key film of the genre.
CONDITION: Grade A. Pinholes. One slight misfold, else fine. Folded, as issued.
