Rare Original Australian Daybill Poster Mission Impossible 1968
Mission Impossible (or Mission: Impossible vs. the Mob as it was known in Europe) is a 1968 American spy film. It is the first film based on the television series Mission: Impossible (1966-1973). The film consisted of a compilation of a two-part episode of the original series from 1967 called ‘The Council’. The TV series and thus the film was based on the exploits of a team of secret government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). The TV series was revived in 1988 for two seasons on ABC, retaining only Graves in the cast. It also inspired a series of theatrical motion pictures starring Tom Cruise, beginning in 1996 which have gone onto be very successful.
