This is a 27" x 40" US one-sheet poster designed by Drew Struzan for the 1984 Amy Heckerling film Johnny Dangerously written by Harry Colomby, Jeff Harris, Bernie Kukoff and Norman Steinberg and starring Michael Keaton as Johnny Kelly aka Johnny Dangerously. This film is a parody of crime and gangster movies from the 1930s. Plot summary: Johnny Kelly is an honest man who is obliged to turn to crime to pay his mother's [Maureen Stapleton] medical bills and to put his younger brother Tommy [Griffin Dunne] through law school. As he explains to a young shoplifter trying steal from him in 1935, the story begins in 1910 when young Johnny [Byron Thames] is working as a newsboy in New York City. To pay for one of his mother's medical operations he starts working for a crime boss named Jocko Dundee [Peter Boyle] and eventually, under continuing pressure to pay for more medical operations, he becomes head of Dundee's gang; his younger brother becomes the district attorney on his payroll. Johnny is later arrested and sentenced to death, but escapes.
