Walkabout Poster

UK Quad poster for "Walkabout" (1971) with Chantrell poster illustration. A terrific poster for a superbly crafted film. Set in the Australian outback, Jenny Agutter & her brother become stranded but encounter a young aborigine: the clash of cultures, attitudes & sensibilities is beautifully told.

 

Chantrell's use of colour instantly evokes the sense of the burning hot sun. In painting the running figures, however, Chantrell enlisted the services of his wife Shirley & a child of a family met on a walk in the country. Chantrell had them run down a slope whilst he took photos, the exercise all designed to assist him bring authenticity to this poster creation.

 

The poster has a few neat pin-holes to corners/rim & writing to reverse which does NOT show through but overall is in excellent condition.
