Original US one sheet for THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (Tobe Hooper, USA, 1974)Designer: unknown. But New Line used the exact same design when they re-released it in 1980. Didn’t change a thing except the date and the Bryanston Pictures credit.Poster source: Heritage AuctionsI first saw The Texas Chainsaw Massacre projected in 16mm in a Swiss ski chalet on a school trip.
