    1974 Patty Hearst Original FBI Most Wanted Poster This granddaughter of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst was a student at Berkeley when she was kidnapped in February 1974 by a neo-revolutionary group called the Symbionese Liberation Army. By her account, Hearst was kept in a closet for the next two months and "brainwashed" by the small group of radicals. Initial demands from the SLA were agreed to by the Hearst family but negotiations broke down. When Patty, apparently a willing convert, participated in a San Francisco bank robbery, she was placed on the FBI's "Most Wanted" list along with group members Bill and Emily Harris. Offered here is an authentic wanted poster published by the FBI, Flyer 475A, dated September 19, 1974. It has original mailing folds, otherwise fine condition, 10.5" x 16" in size. Hearst's story was told in a 1988 movie.
