Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original John Schlesinger vintage movie posters from his critically acclaimed catalog of timeless cinematic creations.

English actor and film-stage director John Richard Schlesinger CBE (February 16, 1926 – July 25, 2003) was an Academy Award winning Director for Midnight Cowboy and received nominations for Darling and Sunday Bloody Sunday. His acting career began in The Divided Heart, Oh... Rosalinda!, The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Vise. He did the short documentaries Sunday in the Park, Benjamin Britten, and the Aldeburgh Festival in 1958.

Schlesinger appeared as "Dutch cook" in Col March of Scotland Yard in Death and the Other Monkey in 1956. He was credited for the TV series The Four Just Men and episodes of the series Danger Man in 1959, including the documentary Terminus (1961). His fiction films include A Kind of Loving (1962), Billy Liar (1963), followed by Darling (1965), one of the first films about swinging London. He directed Timon of Athens (1965), the musical I and Albert (1972), and Far from the Madding Crowd (1967), an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's popular novel.

Although his hits Honky Tonk Freeway (1981) came out with low returns, including The Falcon and the Snowman (1985), it made money, together with Pacific Heights (1990). He did films like Madame Sousatzka (1988), Cold Comfort Farm (1995), Englishman Abroad (1983), A Question of Attribution (1991), The Innocent (1993), and The Next Best Thing in 2000.

Schlesinger experienced a quadruple heart bypass and eventually suffered a stroke in 2000. He died at the age of 77.
