[Np]: Neu Constantin Film, 1986. Original 33 x 23" German A1 poster (the "Girl in Bar" style). Folded as issued, else fine. A highly pictorial poster issued to promote the West German release of the musical film loosely adapted from Colin MacInnes's 1959 novel, set to rock and enmeshed in the racial tensions at the time of the Notting Hill riots in London. The film was directed by Julien Temple, and starred Patsy Kensit (as Crepe Suzette), Eddie O'Connell, Ray Davies, David Bowie, Sade, and Mandy Rice-Davies, et al. The film is notable for its soundtrack, released concurrently with the film, which raised it to cult status.
