Devil’s Harvest film poster could make £8,000 at Christie’s

A rare, three sheet film poster advertising 1942 exploitation flick Devil’s Harvest is expected to make £8,000 at Christie’s Out of the Ordinary auction on September 5.

Devil’s Harvest, Reefer Maddness’ natural successor, is preoccupied with the “tragedy” of marijuana use in the US.

Despite hailing from the early 1940s – an era which saw America filmmakers largely forget about the dangers of cannabis – the film claims to take onlookers “behind the scenes of the marijuana underworld…into the secret dens of the marijuana racket”.

At times, a confusing, (unintentionally) hilarious topicality is sought: America’s drug problems are inexplicably attributed to the Nazi high command.Image

The vintage three-sheet poster is expected to achieve £6,000-8,000 at the forthcoming auction.

Here at Paul Fraser Collectibles, we currently have this amazing California League of Sexual Freedom poster in stock.
