Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,376.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Extremely scarce movie prop poster from The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle. 32 x 48, entitled, “Eddie Barclay Presente Sid Vicious, Olympia de Paris,” featuring Vicious standing below the Eiffel Tower, holding a mini-Eiffel Tower in the air. One of only four posters produced as props in the movie. Rolled and in fine condition, with some scattered light creasing.

Though Sid Vicious has a relatively small role as ‘The Gimmick’ in the film, as he wanders the streets of Paris offending and accosting most everyone with whom he comes in contact, including a woman by smashing a just pilfered piece of cake into her face, a copy of this poster is seen plastered to the side of a wall alongside an array of other event posters. And who can forget his eerily prophetic rendering of ‘My Way,’ as he pumps bullets into the bodies of several well-dressed front row attendees, before ascending the staircase at the Paris Olympia! The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle is a mockumentary film directed by Julien Temple about the British punk rock band Sex Pistols. The movie tells a stylized fictional account of the formation, rise and subsequent breakup of the band, from the point of view of their then-manager Malcolm McLaren. The footage was filmed in early to mid-1978, between singer John Lydon's departure from the band and their subsequent split. Lydon (who was listed in the credits as "The Collaborator") and early bass guitarist Glen Matlock only appear in archive footage—Lydon having refused to have anything to do with the production.
