Death Race 2000 (1975) - (David Carradine) Turkish one-sheet
This is a 26.5" x 39" Turkish one-sheet poster for the 1975 Paul Bartel film Death Race 2000 based on a story by Ib Melchior, screenplay by Robert Thom and Charles Griffith and starring David Carradine as Frankenstein. Plot summary: This is a dystopian science fiction sports film set in the year 2000 with a government-sponsored road race where the participants use cars that have drivers and navigators and score points by killing pedestrians, with the point values set according to age and sex. All pedestrians are valid targets, including race officials and a driver's mechanics. Frankenstein has lost most of his jaw, his nose, his right and left eyes and most of his cranium. He wears a leather hood and his head is held together with patches of plastic and steel plates. A resistance group led by Thomasina Paine [Harriet Medin] seeks to sabotage the race, kill most of the drivers and take Frankenstein hostage. She is aided in this by her great granddaughter Annie [Simone Griffeth], who is also Frankenstein's navigator.
