Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Vanishing Point vintage movie posters. Film/Art Gallery offers a wide range of movie posters and artwork for the cinema's ultimate action film.

Vanishing Point is an American action film in 1971, directed by Richard C. Sarafian, with Barry Newman, Cleavon Little, and Dean Jagger. It is the story of a disaffected ex-cop and race driver who is delivering a souped-up car cross country to California while high on speed, being chased by police, and meeting various characters along the way. The film became a cult movie and includes memorable performances by Delaney and Bonnie and others.

The Vanishing Point screenplay was written by G. Cabrera Infante, under the pseudonym Guillermo Cain. Its story was based on two actual events: the disgraced career of a San Diego police officer and a high-speed pursuit of a man who refused to stop and was killed when he crashed into a police roadblock. Infante modeled the character of Super Soul after legendary rock and roll singer, The Big Bopper. The Vanishing Point script mirrors the popular counter-culture lifestyle of the time, containing elements of rebellion, drugs, sexual freedom, and rock and roll.

In 1969, director Richard C. Sarafian neglected an offer to make Robert Redford's Downhill Racer in order to direct Vanishing Point. He was drawn to the counter-culture themes in Cain's script. Originally, the director wanted Gene Hackman to play Kowalski, but 20th Century Fox studio executive Richard Zanuck insisted on casting relative unknown actor Barry Newman in the lead role.
