The Girl on a Motorcycle: Advertising

There were a lot of beautiful posters designed for Jack Cardiff’s film when it was originally released. Unfortunately I don’t know the names of all the artists who created these posters and ads for The Girl On a Motorcycle (1968), but I hope you enjoy this collection of images. I had to restore and touch-up many of the posters so its been somewhat of a labor of love for me to share these, but well worth the effort. Enjoy!

    Great posters! I like the Czech one the best although I must give proper due to the Japanese one three down from it, just under the Argentine one. That’s quite the clever placement of Marianne in front of the Alain.

    I’m glad you both liked the posters!

    Greg – The Czech stuff is always amazing. They really employed some incredible talent to design film posters over there. I’m also really fond of the Italian poster and the sexy Japanese one you pointed out. Leave to the Japanese to sex it up!

  3. Rick says:

    The posters are marvelous. Interesting that on the re-release in France Maryanne Faithful’s name is huge compared to Delon’s, and Delon was such a huge star in France, too.

    Rick – Glad you like the posters! It’s interesting to compare which actor gets top billing in the poster designs isn’t it? It seems to differ depending on the country. The second French poster seems to really want to promote Faithfull’s appearance!

    logboy – I’m actually putting a post together about the soundtrack right now and I hope you’ll like it!
