I actually used it to plow snow a few times. It’s in rough shape, but wouldn’t take too much to make it nice. Even when not running for over a year, it fires up right away. The engine needs some tuning, but I think it’d run well with some TLC.”

1971 Movie “Venga A Fare Ilsoldato Da Noi” Poster **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This poster includes a jeep driven by soldiers looking as if they’d just driven from the Italian movie version of M*A*S*H. Given M*A*S*H was released the year before in 1970, maybe that wasn’t a coincidence?

As noted at IMDB, “A girl is drafted due to a misunderstanding and this gives her the occasion to check on her boy-friend, whom she believes to be a womanizer.”

“Original poster measures approximately 140 x 200 cm (78″x55″), in conditions as in the photo.”
