THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH (1976) POSTER, BRITISH

SIGNED BY NICOLAS ROEG, DIRECTOR

Art by Vic Fair (1938-2017)


30 x 40 in. (76 x 102 cm)


This British science fiction film was directed by Nicolas Roeg and stars David Bowie, who plays an alien who lands on Earth looking for ways to ship water back to his drought-stricken planet. The film has a cult following as a result of its surreal imagery and the performance by David Bowie.


This poster was signed by Nicolas Roeg at the BFI, London, at a retrospective of his films. It is rare for anyone to have an original film poster signed, as the majority of signatures are on pieces of paper, photographs and video/dvd sleeves. It is unusual to have the film's poster with you when you try to obtain signatures.
