Pic of the Day: The Madonna-centric Italian poster for Vision Quest (1985)

Vision Quest italian poster

Set in Spokane, Washington, Vision Quest (1985) stars Matthew Modine as a high school wrestler who embarks on a¬†quixotic mission to drop multiple weight classes in order to take on his region’s top grappler.

Madonna makes a brief appearance in the film as a singer at a club crooning “Crazy for You.” That cameo was enough for Italian poster artist extraordinaire Enzo Sciotti to re-imagine the movie as a Madonna vehicle in which Modine also does a bit of wrestling – in a ring.
