Rutger Hauer Autographed EXTREMELY RARE Original 1972 'Turks Fruit / Turkish Delight' Promo Photo!


An extremely rare 1972 promotional photo!

This ORIGINAL photo comes from the 1972 Dutch film ( 'Turks Fruit' is the original title) directed by Paul Verhoeven. Rutger played the role of 'Erik Vonk'.
Rutger has always declared that Erik was him, all over, 'A young wild dog'. In the U.S. the film premiere took placeat the end of 1973 and 'The Los Angeles Times' wrote, 'This film hits so strongly our middle-class mentality that it is essential to give it a second look to fully understand the richness of its story'. Other reviews said that 'It reveals the ability of a young Dutch actor, Rutger Hauer, who seems at ease both in physical exploits as well as in poignant, heart-breaking scenes. He gives Erik’s character a surprisingly strong intensity, which he is also able to keep under control in order not to fall into a melodramatic sentimentalism'.

This extremely rare b/w ORIGINAL promotional photo comes from a Dutch TV magazine. On its reverse side there is the original blue stamp from this Dutch TV magazine, as well as the original blue copyright stamp from 'ANP Foto Amsterdam', along with a typed description of the photo scene that was shot in Amsterdam's Damrak/Prins Hendrikkade.

This b/w photo measures 9.5" x 7.5" (24 cms x 19 cms) and Rutger has autographed it in permanent black ink.
