Dirty Harry 'Magnum Force' Original Vintage Movie Poster, American, 1973


In the first sequel to 1971 brutal crime drama 'Dirty Harry,' Clint Eastwood reprised his career-defining role as maverick San Francisco police detective 'Dirty' Harry Callahan in the 1973 action thriller 'Magnum Force,' which sees him on the trail of a band of vigilante cops who are bumping off the city's notorious criminals. As part of a creative partnership with Eastwood that kicked off with 'Dirty Harry' and would continue for the next three decades, legendary poster designer Bill Gold nailed it again with his less-is-more artwork for the 'Magnum Force' campaign, which focused on an edgy monochrome image of Harry with his .44 Magnum, shot by Philippe Halsman with a wide angle lens to blow up the proportions, with the title in a piercing splash of violent blood red. Honouring his friend and collaborator in the foreword to Bill Gold: Posterworks, Eastwood praised Gold's ability to '...[match] the human emotions of these pictures with unforgettable images.' With probably the best artwork from the campaign, this US special display was produced in limited quantities as a promotional poster to be given away in participating cinema lobbies. Very popular with collectors, this poster has previously sold for up to £2,500 at Christie's auction house (June 2010).
