A guaranteed original U.S. 'one sheet' movie poster from 1983 for Nagisa Oshima's moving prisoner of war film "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence", starring David Bowie.

The film is based on Sir Laurens van der Post's (godfather of Prince William) experiences as a Japanese prisoner of war during World War II, captured in two books ‘The Seed and the Sower’ (1963) and ‘The Night of the New Moon’ (1970).

Whilst Tom Conti played the eponymous 'Colonel John Lawrence', it is Bowie's performance for which the film is best known, with The New York Times calling it "mercurial and arresting". 

This poster has never been folded. It has the most minor of edge creases.

By The Way - If you haven't heard it, search for David Sylvian and Ryuichi Sakamoto's "Forbidden Colours". It's a hauntingly beautiful vocal version of the main theme tune.

We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.

Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
