THE BODYGUARD, Karate Kiba, Sonny Chiba Kung-Fu Exploitation Original Vintage Movie Theater Poster

THE BODYGUARD, 1976. Original Grindhouse Movie Theater Poster A.k.a Karate Kiba, starring; Sonny ( Jirô ) Chiba, Etsuko Shihomi, Aaron Banks and directors Ryuichi Takamori and Simon Nuchtern.

This film starts with a quote “The path of the righteous man and defender is beset on all sides by the iniquity of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men…” Recognize it? (This is the famous quote by Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction!) Quote ends; “and they shall know that I am Chiba the Bodyguard when I shall lay my vengeance upon them! ” Another eerie oddity about this poster is that you can see a plane flying into the twin towers in the background… Very strange for a poster from the 70s.

Tarantino´s films are popularizations of a genre of film that never was mainstream.

This poster is in excellent near mint condition with no visible wear. A real nice poster next to its accompanied double billing film, The Street Fighter!

Condition C9-10. Sold For $125
