(Original Cinema Poster)
Poster for Andy Warhol’s 1970 American drama film directed and written by Paul Morrissey and starring Joe Dallesandro, Holly Woodlawn and Jane Forth.
Dallesandro had previously starred in several other Andy Warhol/Paul Morrissey films such as The Loves of Ondine, Lonesome Cowboys, San Diego Surf, and Flesh. Dallesandro was Morrissey’s preferred leading man.
Woodlawn made her screen debut in this film; director George Cukor famously instigated a write-in campaign to have her nominated for an Academy Award, but this didn’t materialize. Jane Forth, a 17-year-old model, also makes her debut in this film.
She would shortly afterwards appear on the cover of Look magazine. The film also features other Warhol superstars such as Andrea Feldman and Geri Miller. Sissy Spacek also made a quick uncredited appearance as ‘a girl who sits at the bar’ but was cut from the final film.
The film features graphic scenes of intravenous drug use, sex, and frontal nudity.

Additional strip added to the bottom for Alice’s Restaurant, Arlo Guthrie – presumably, they weren’t rolled out together and this is specific to a theatre but we cannot be sure about this.
Alice’s Restaurant is a 1969 American comedy film directed by Arthur Penn. It is an adaptation of the 1967 folk song “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree”, originally written and sung by Arlo Guthrie. The film stars Guthrie as himself, with Pat Quinn as Alice Brock and James Broderick as Ray Brock. Penn, who resided in the story’s setting of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, co-wrote the screenplay in 1967 with Venable Herndon after hearing the song, shortly after directing Bonnie & Clyde.
Alice’s Restaurant was released on August 19, 1969, a few days after Guthrie appeared at the Woodstock Festival. A soundtrack album for the film was also released by United Artists Records. The soundtrack includes a studio version of the title song, which was originally divided into two parts (one for each album side); a 1998 CD reissue on the Rykodisc label presents this version of the song in full and adds several bonus tracks to the original LP.
In good condition overall considering it is a 40+ year old poster, we encourage you to examine the pictures closely for true condition images.
The I in ‘censorship’ shows that the additional strip was not taped perfectly making it have some folds and creases along the bottom edge (pictured).
