The Beastmaster (1982) - (Marc Singer) Egyptian one-sheet
This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian one-sheet poster designed by an unknown artist to promote the 1982 Don Coscarelli film The Beastmaster adapted by Don Coscarelli and Paul Pepperman from the 1959 Andre Norton novel, starring Marc Singer as Dar. Plot summary: Dar has been raised in exile after escaping sacrifice as an infant to Ar, the god of the Kingdom of Aruk. As a child he learns he the ability to communicate telepathically with animals. When he is an adult his people are slaughtered by a horde of barbarians called the Jun and he vows to take revenge. On the way he assumes the task of saving a slave girl named Kiri [Tanya Roberts] from being sacrificed by the high priest Maax (pronounced mayax) [Rip Torn]. He then defeats the Jun when they attack Aruk. After completing that little job Dar sets off into the wilderness looking for more adventure accompanied by Kiri, his friend Ruh the black tiger, his golden eagle Sharak and his ferret Podo, who has just given birth to two baby ferrets sired by Kodo, her mate who was killed in the fight with the Jun. As the film ends the happy couple and their animal friends are filmed as they stand on a picturesque sandstone desert peak, from a helicopter that circles around them to the sounds of triumphant strings and horns, conducted by Lee Holdridge.
