This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet poster for the 1978 Richard Bennett film Harper Valley P.T.A. based on a story by George Edwards, screenplay by George Edwards and Barry Schneider and starring Barbara Eden as Stella Johnson. Plot summary: The story is inspired by Jeannie C. Riley's hit song (written by Tom T. Hall) with the same title, in which Stella Johnson, a widowed single mother, exposes the hypocrisy of Harper Valley, Ohio townspeople at a meeting of the P.T.A. after they have criticized her fitness to raise her 14-year-old daughter Dee [Susan Swift] and threatened to expel her from school in an official letter denouncing her social behavior. Stella retaliates by exposing some of the town's embarrassing secrets, causing lines to be drawn in bitter feuding in the valley where Stella ends up becoming P.T.A. president.
