Bastard Posters thread (aka MacGyver posters?)

I have lots of these I can post.  Here's not just a bastard poster but a bastard double-bill!  Yes appears they actually lost the second feature of the double bill, so cut out half of a 2nd copy, to create a double bill?  Or are they simply showing the movie twice?  You be the judge!

 Can you get more Canadian than a double-double bill (maybe only Chris will get that)

That's a weird one, Vick!  Is it a gimmick as the top looks all original?  Okie

yep you can tell from the second image that they cut and glued a replicate first image onto the poster.  You can also see faint writing from the other film underneath.  Bonkers!

Here's another bastard poster of a Canadian 1sh for the double bill KUNG-FU'S HERO/ANGRY DRAGON.  Appears the reel for Kung Fu Hero got lost in the mail... so the theatre was left with just the one movie - but fortunately two copies of the poster!  Add glue, scissors ... and voila.

This is a weird one for the Love Pill (1972) which is actually not an easy UK Quad poster to find.  That's right, a QUAD poster don't be fooled by my shitty camera angles.  So, what do you do when life gives your vertical marquee a horizontal poster?  You make lemonade of course... ie, cut the shit out of your quad and make a standard one sheet. 






Here's a link to the real Quad, nice enough for someone to frame!

You can hear two blokes talk about the film in this podcast if you are interested.

They were honorable at least, Vick. They didn't cut the banana.  Okie
