A guaranteed original and framed 8x10 lobby card from 1971 for Lee H. Katzin's car racing thriller "Le Mans", also released as "The 24 Hours of Le Mans".
Featuring footage captured during the real-life 1970 race, Le Mans tells the fictional story of Porsche racing driver Michael Delaney (Steve McQueen). With death and danger seemingly all around, should he quit or go for a Porsche win at Le Mans?
The addictive nature of racing portrayed in the film mirrors life. McQueen was obsessed with creating a true racing film and its production took a significant toll on him and those around him. A 2015 documentary, Steve McQueen : The Man and Le Mans, tells this incredible story.
This superb lobby card, showing McQueen in the Le Mans pit lane, was used in the foyer of a U.S. movie theater at the time of the film's release.
It is in wonderful condition and has been framed by us in a black ayous wood frame with an iced white mount, protective barrier board and acrylic glazing with high UV resistance. As our photos show, it will look amazing on display!
By the way, Steve McQueen considered becoming a professional racing driver. In 1961 he drove a Mini at a British Touring Car race at Brands Hatch, finishing third!
We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.
Note: This lobby card is priced framed. Photos showing 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
