The Gauntlet


This is the original US 1 sheet poster for this 1977 drama in which Eastwood plays cop escorting a hooker (Locke) to trial only to be caught up in a web of corruption and danger. The poster art is by Frank Frazetta.

Note that there were several different printings of this poster, with slightly different arrangements of the credits, and with Sondra Locke's credit being drastically different in size on some of them. A knowledgeable collector tells us that initially Sondra Locke had smaller billing, but "When she saw it, she was irate and insisted that she get equal billing" as her contract stipulated. We can't be certain this is the case, but it certainly makes sense. So it is likely that the small Sondra Locke credit is from the very first version of the poster and the larger credit is from the second version of the poster, but of course, we cannot verify that as being a certainty.
