Lawrence of Arabia Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Lawrence of Arabia 1962 UK quad - 40"x30" Fine/Near Mint on linen £9,950
Notes: This is the holy grail of the Lawrence of Arabia posters. It's one of a very small number of UK quads that were used in the few weeks between the film being released and winning 7 Oscars. As such it's not only a stunning UK country of origin poster for an iconic British film but it's also incredibly rare. This poster is linen backed in superb condition with minimal retouching to the main artwork and just some airbrushing to the white borders.

Lawrence of Arabia (advance) Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Lawrence of Arabia (advance) 1962 French - 22"x16" Fine on linen £600
Notes: This is the rare advance from the first release in France of David Lean's classic. Notably, this is the only poster to feature the now iconic long distance shot of Omar Sharif approaching the well. N.B. The poster harks back to the success of Bridge on the River Kwai in order to generate interest in the new release. Later posters had no such need. Currently framed, this poster is linen backed and will be sent out rolled unless the buyer would like the frame as well. It has minor airbrushing to the lower edge which has resulted in the loss of a few letters of the very fine print in the lower left corner so 'Cinemato' now reads 'mato'. This is all very minor, though, and the poster looks stunning.

Propaganda - aerial combat over aircraft carrier  Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Propaganda - aerial combat over aircraft carrier 1943 UK DC - 20" x 30" poor £150
Notes: This is a rare WW2 UK government issued propaganda poster awaiting linen backing and restoration. With artwork by Frank Wootton, it shows aerial combat above a British aircraft carrier. Although the Imperial War Museum lists this as Sea Hurricanes fighting a Dornier, the British planes appear to me to be Fairey Fulmars. Any more expert aviation advice gratefully accepted on this point. Whatever the case, dating from around 1943, this is one of the rarer variants of British civil propaganda that can be restored to look wonderful again. Likely restoration costs would be around £300.

Propaganda - ATS Blonde Bombshell Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Propaganda - ATS Blonde Bombshell 1941 UK DC - 20" x 30" Fine £3,450
Notes: One of the rarest and most sought after of any British propaganda posters. This Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) poster caused so much controversy in August 1941 that it was swiftly withdrawn by the British Government. The glamorous blonde with bright red lipstick depicted on a Second World War poster by the artist Abram Games seems harmless enough today but at the time it provoked fierce debate over whether it was the right way to recruit women into the Army's dowdy ATS. The 'Blonde Bombshell', with its implications of potential sexual freedom within a more mobile female wartime population, was withdrawn from circulation on parliamentary demand as being unsuitable and all copies were pulped for the war effort. This is a rare survivor in excellent condition with no fading of the colours and only light handling wear.

Propaganda - Keep Calm and Carry On Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Propaganda - Keep Calm and Carry On 1939 UK DC - 20" x 30" Near Mint £8,995
Notes: This is a very rare and important piece of British history, printed in 1939 when the threat of invasion by the all conquering Nazis was a very real possibility. This design was printed in secret and intended for distribution only if the Germans landed on British soil. Thankfully this never happened and, like all paper in the 1940's, stocks were taken from storage, pulped and recycled in the austerity years after the war. It was almost completely forgotten until one was rediscovered in 2000 by the owner of a bookshop, whereupon the design became the centre of a worldwide marketing phenomenon, appearing on everything from mugs to T-shirts. There were believed to be only two survivors until a stash of fifteen appeared on the BBC Antiques Roadshow in 2012 and six more appeared from another significant estate find of a hoard of wartime posters in 2014. They remain incredibly rare with under forty known examples in the world. Undoubtedly the most poignant of any wartime poster in British history, it has recently also become one of the most iconic motivational themes of all time and is consequently increasingly sought after. Rolled in superb condition.

Wings 1927 French 44" x 53" Fine on linen £12,750
Notes: Released in 1927, Wings is one of the most important films in movie history and not just because it won the first ever Best Picture Oscar. Wings also set new standards for technical excellence with its extraordinary aerial dogfight sequences and changed the way films were made forever. This particular poster is unbelievably rare and the only larger format original 1927 poster that I have ever seen or heard of for this landmark film. While lobby cards and window cards do appear every few years and several US 1 sheets have surfaced (Heritage have sold two for £50,000+), I have been unable to find evidence of any larger format posters ever coming to the market. This one is from France (the scene of the action in the film) and, although the lower credits have been lost and the outer white borders replaced, the main artwork of the RAF fighter plane is in excellent condition with little wear, minimal retouching and no fading. It was printed using a stone litho rather than offset litho press which gives more vivid colours (offset litho presses took over in the 1930's because they were faster and more accurate). Quite possibly a unique opportunity.
