LOGAN'S RUN (1976) International Theatrical Posters

In celebration of Logan's Run co-author/creator (with George Clayton Johnson) William F Nolan's birthday, here's a selection of some of the International variations on the MGM poster design for the original 1976 film. The movie starred Michael York and Jenny Agutter, and is a big favorite here at Space: 1970.

Nolan also wrote two sequels to the original Logan's Run novel, Logan's World and Logan's Search.

NOTE: And don't forget, the Logan's Run television series from 1977 is being released on DVD in April, and can be pre-ordered now: Logan's Run: Complete Series


  1. Logan's Run was a big deal for me when it came out. I saw it once at a theater, and then taped the audio when I went to see it at a drive-in. I bought the novel, the soundtrack LP, and saved my change to buy the set of lobbycards, which was great. I still have everything in my collection. Have you ever noticed the guy giving the Vulcan salute in the last scene? I made a screen capture of it here: http://fantasticflashbacks.blogspot.com/2010/09/1976-logans-run-article.html

  2. Cool. I love the white background poster, surely one of the best ever. Great movie too. Just added it to my DVD collection as a fave must-have seventies sci-fi. Like Frederick above, I once got the soundtrack too, brilliant score.

  3. Doubt that we'll see it in Australia :( Might also want to check out this link:
    Website hasn't been updated in a long while, but still good for the lost audio, tv show and deleted scenes info...
    BTW viewing your blog from australia adds a .au to the domain...just thought you would want to know...

  4. One of the posters says that Logan is 29, but it was actually the computer that altered his life clock (and thus cheated him out of four years) so that he could pose as a runner. They must've been thinking of the original novel, in which Logan was about to turn 21--the age of mandatory termination in the book.

  5. Illustrations from the 70s are so awesome!

  6. These are fantastic theatrical posters! Not bad for a 1976 film.
