Detective Harry Callahan. He doesn't break murder cases. He smashes them.

I believe this to be an official restrike/reissue done by Warner Brothers in the late 70s or early 80s. In comparison to the original one I have you can see that the layout changes and several printer marks are missing, yet it measures the correct 27″ x 41″.  The fold lines from the copied original are also visible (see photos).

If anyone has any more information on this please get in touch.

    Hard to say what year exactly. I’m guessing 1989. When BATMAN came out, they were selling reprints of their classic movies in their new Warner Brothers catalog. This was one of them. I have one. Paid 150 for it, and obviously upset. But what can I do about it at this point? Besides, Clint Eastwood signed it for me a year ago. so, can’t really get rid of it now, but still pretty upsetting that it’s not an original. Beware of ebay

    Thanks for your comment. Late 1980s makes sense to me. I have one of the restrikes of A Clockwork Orange too. I’m certain they’ve stung a lot of people in the past, I wouldn’t beat yourself up too much over it. At least you know what to look out for now.
