1976 Cannonball French film poster
This large original poster is in excellent condition and linen mounted and measures over 5 feet tall (46×63″ / 117x160cm). The film featured David Carradine and the artwork shows some of the various cars used like the Chevrolet Camaro and Jaguar E-Type.
- The name of the film and the plot were inspired by Erwin G. “Cannon Ball” Baker, who traveled across the United States several times, and by the Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash, an illegal cross-continent road race introduced by Brock Yates to protest against the 55 MPH speed limit. It later inspired many other races such as the GumBall & Goldrush Rally. What an awesome piece of Americana!
