Kes 1969 1st Release UK Quad Film Poster

Ridculously rare country-of-origin first print UK quad for Ken Loach's gem of British working-class cinema, Kes. Suitably simple but powerful design for this kitchen sink classic.

This pre-quotes first print poster is impossibly rare. As gritty as the film itself, this 'V' sign 'to you mate!' imagery caused some controversy on its release. It was banned from display on some buses and the 'distasteful' words '... to you mate!' were covered over with snipes on some billboards in London. 

This vintage movie poster is sized 29 7/8 x 39 3/4 inches, it will be sent rolled (unframed).
