Poster of the Week – June 15 2017

The Poster of the Week is Kona Coast and comes from a dealer in Hawaii. The movie came about because of Richard Boone. This is how it is described on the Turner Classic Movie website:

“Following his successful 1957-1963 stint as the cultured gun-for-hire Paladin in TV’s Have Gun Will Travel, series star Richard Boone would spend the balance of the decade as a resident of Hawaii, and was thereafter keen on ensuring that the Islands got their share of film production opportunities. This is best evidenced by the Richard Boone-produced opus Kona Coast (1968), a crime-adventure drama that, to a contemporary eye, smacks of a series pilot leveraged into theatrical release, and is reasonably diverting if you’re willing to forgive the sometime suspect production values.”
