TITLE:  BLACKBOARD JUNGLE

         

DATE: 1955

 

FORMAT: British quad (30 x 40 inches)

 

STARS: Glenn Ford, Anne Francis, Louis Calhern. DIRECTOR: Richard Brooks.

 

NOTES:  The quintessential 1950s film of teenage delinquency. It was a milestone film, dealing in such issues as violence in schools, racial discrimination and gang culture.  Hard hitting for its time and a thought provoking film that still has considerable power.  The movie was also famous for its rock 'n' roll soundtrack which included Bill Hayley's 'Rock Around the Clock'. This was the first time a rock song had ever been used in the soundtrack of a mainstream movie.  The movie made the song a hit and helped to launch rock 'n' roll.  The Blackboard Jungle is a culturally important film.  The release in the UK sparked riots by 'Teddy Boys' in many venues where it was shown and, for a period, it was withdrawn from circulation, making this first release British quad POSTER scarce.

 

CONDITION: Grade A. Small hole near bottom left border, very slight edge wear. All else fine. Folded, as issued.
