(Paramount, 1979) Original development artwork for a movie poster for "Escape from Alcatraz" starring Clint Eastwood. This artwork comes from the collection of Bill Wallen, and features hand-trimmed and applied printed artwork over an art board backing. Below the artwork, hand-trimmed and applied production text and theatre specific text is listed, and over the artwork, a clear sheet is hinged over the top with applied text of "Clint Eastwood" and "Escape from Alcatraz". These last two portions of text have the words "for position only" written on them, which is a printing term that specifies that the imagery used is not the final imagery. "For Placement Only" or "F.P.O." development artwork such as this, allows the design team to continue working on the project while aspects of the final artwork are still being completed. This artwork provides a rare glimpse into the creation of promotional materials for this iconic film, and measures 30"x20". The condition is very good with some tape residue and minor wear around the edges of the board. There is a vellum sheet hinged over the top of the artwork that has some tears throughout, and there is yellowing to the back-side of the art board.
