Paris, Texas (1984) - (Harry Dean Stanton) Polish one-sheet
This is a 26.5" x 38.5" Polish poster designed by Witold Dybowski for the 1984 Wim Wenders film Paris, Texas written by L.M. Kit Carson and Sam Shepard and starring Harry Dean Stanton as Travis Henderson. Plot summary: Travis Henderson is a broken, slowly recovering amnesiac longing to reconnect with but not to resume his former life as he wanders around on foot in south Texas. His former life includes his abandoned son Hunter [Hunter Carson] and his estranged wife Jane [Nastassja Kinski]. The film's spare, haunting soundtrack is made up almost entirely of Ry Cooder performing variations on a song by Blind Willie Johnson (1897 - 1945) called Dark Is the Night (AKA Dark Was the Night for Cooder's recorded version).
