A few years back, I was lucky enough to pick up two stylish film posters from a largely unknown late 60s British independent movie called Bronco Bullfrog. One is in storage, the other in a frame. To buy an original today would set you back a hefty amount, but if you want a reproduction of the iconic boot poster, the film’s director, Barney Platts-Mills, has done a reprint and is selling it online.
This gritty British flick is no classic, but it’s a sought-after movie for one reason – the style of the character, Bronco Bullfrog. Bronco was a suedehead, a short-lived youth cult of the era. And this movie, probably by accident, was the only one to catch that look on film.
The original film poster looks impressive on our wall and I’m sure the re-print will be just as eye-catching. And it’s just £8 including postage.
