Poster in Death Proof?


#1

Hi from Denmark :slight_smile:. Does anyone know who made the poster hanging in the room in one of the first scenes in Death Proof? The poster is a bondage-inspired black/white photo - a woman hanging with her head down - and it seems like there is a city down under her. If nobody knows who made this poster- or where to buy it- does anyone know who to contact to get the name of it?



I just love this poster - so thanks if someone could give me a hint or help in anyway.

Its the poster for Soldier Blue, its an early 70s Revisionist Western genre film partly about Civil War Union soldiers massacring Indian tribes. Starring Peter Strauss and Candice Bergen.

revisionist? how come?

(having say that i don’t like soldier blue)

Revisionist is a re-examination of a certain period of history. QTs going to be doing his own revisionist films in the future. Inglorious Bastards (WW2) and his “Southern”, which will re-examine America’s dealings with slavery within a genre film format.



That poster is probably a little clue as to what kinds of films QT is going to make in the future.

oh ok. “revisionist” is usually a very pejorative word, that is why i asked.

Thank you very much for telling me this :-*. I have spent so much time searching, and now within zero point no time with your help I succeeded. What a nice example of the magic of networking.

I think that poster was specially made for the film. I remember reading about it in the Grindhouse book.

Brigitte Bardot is half swedish I think.


#17

Ahah, why do you want everybody to be half swedish ?? ;D


#18

Oops, she married an norwegian, she ain’t swedish at all:P

Hi there!

Does anyone know where I can find that Brigitte Bardot poster? I would so love such a poster over my sofa :0)

I think they made it for the movie, there’s no such poster. It’s a still from a movie, not a real poster. But maybe I’m wrong :wink:
