The summer cinema of 1975 was dominated by Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster, Jaws, based on Peter Benchley’s best selling novel.

It had everything – drama, action, genuine shocks, humour, one liners, and of course that iconic soundtrack.

The trio of male leads had fantastic chemistry, and it’s hard to think of many sequences to beat Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss and Roy Scheider in that (not big enough!) boat.

With scenes much imitated and parodied, Spielberg gave a master class in shooting action and building tension.

As a result, the film remains one of cinema’s best loved and re-issued and re-watched movies.

And for film fans and poster collectors, the original movie poster image by Roger Kastel has a place in history.  Instantly recognisable, and highly sought after.

Original advertising materials from the movie’s initial release are harder and harder to come by, and as a result, their value continues to rise.

This is an original US One Sheet poster with that iconic Kastel imagery, and the “may be too intense for younger children” ratings warning.

Please see the detailed condition report in the Notes below, but note that the “shimmer” in the dark blue on both sides of the upper fold line and near the Scheider and Dreyfuss names is caused by slight photography reflection from the poster’s glossy surface, and is not on the poster when viewed in real life.








Poster Artist:



Good condition linen backed poster, fold line and centre folds restoration just visible, and a few minor fold/crease blemishes in the dark blue (and one in the sea). The "shimmer" around the upper and lower fold lines is light reflection from the photography and does not appear on the poster
