Laserdisc cover for the 1987 blockbuster Robocop, signed by director Verhoeven and leads Weller and Allen. Robocop established Verhoeven as a star director with American audiences and gave birth to two sequels.
Laserdisc cover signed "Peter Weller", "Paul Verhoeven" and "Nancy Allen", all in blue ink. Color, 12¼x12¼. Criterion Collection two-disc set, not included. Program content and artwork ©1987 Orion Prictures Corporation, laserdisc package, supplement design and audio commentary ©1995 The Voyager Company. Verhoeven directed Robocop (1987), a futuristic shoot-em-up starring Weller as Alex J. Murphy, a murdered police officer transformed into a cyborg, and Allen as Anne Lewis, his partner. Robocop was nominated for two Oscars in technical categories and established Verhoeven with American audiences as a director of darkly humorous, occasionally absurd movies. VERHOEVEN, born in Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, the Netherlands, is a Dutch director, producer and writer with almost 30 movies to his credit. Verhoeven's movies include shoot-em-ups like Robocop (1987), Total Recall (1990) and Starship Troopers (1997) and erotic movies like Basic Instinct (1992) and Showgirls (1995). His oeuvre have been called violent and misogynistic and have earned him a Worst Director Razzie Award for Showgirls. But he has countered that "...it is my sincere opinion film only reflects the violence of society." When you consider that some of his earliest memories are of warplanes falling into the fields near his home during World War II, then this explanation makes some sense. Verhoeven got his start directing short films in 1960, but had to wait 13 years for his first international hit Turkish Delight, his first of many collaboations with cinematographer Jan be Bont and the first movie to include a recurrent theme through his movies, that of sexual obsession. His movies after this included Cathy Tippel (1975), about a girl who is sold into prostitution by her poverty-stricken family; the grim coming-of-age tale Soldier of Orange (1978); and the obsession-filled Spetters (1980) and The Fourth Man (1983). WELLER, born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin in 1947, is probably best known as the gunslinging scientist Buckaroo Banzai in the cult classic The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension! (1984) and as Alex J. Murphy, a police officer who's transformed into a cyborg in Robocop (1987). But Weller as a versatile actor of stage, TV and films with four Broadway appearances and almost 60 TV shows and movies to his credit. Weller, who first appeared on TV in The Man Without a Country (1973) and on the silver screen in Butch and Sundance: The Early Days (1979), has played lead and support roles in Westerns (the aforementioned Butch and Sundance), comedies (Mighty Aphrodite, 1995), science fiction (Leviathan, 1989, and Screamers, 1995) and the simply bizarre (the aforementioned Buckaroo Banzai and in the role of Bill Lee, a stand-in for William S. Burroughs in Naked Lunch (1991). Weller also holds a Masters degree in Renaissance architecture; he's an occasional lecturer at Syracuse University on the Roman empire and hosted the TV documentary series Engineering an Empire (2005-2007). He directed an unsold TV pilot in 1993 called Partners which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best Live Action Short Film. ALLEN, born in New York City in 1950, got her start the 1962 comedy Money in My Pocket and in TV commercials before landing the role of Nancy in The Last Detail (1973) and of cruel teenager Chris Hargensen in Carrie (1975). A frequent leading lady since 1975's Forced Entry, she's been in comedies like I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978), thrillers like Dressed to Kill (1980) and Blow Out (1981), horror films like Poltergeist 3 (1988) and science fiction films like Strange Invaders (1983) and The Philadelphia Experiment (1984). Allen's most memorable role, though, is probably as tough Detriot cop Anne Lewis in all three Robocop movies, an appropriate role for the daughter of a New York City police officer. Lightly scuffed. Light impressions from disc on cover. Light scratches (not visible) on cover. Otherwise in fine condition.
