A strike at a hospital on its 500-year anniversary and on the eve of a Royal visit results in mayhem, while a mad doctor uses National Health funds to create Frankenstein-type creatures.

The poster art is by Renato Casaro (born 1935). Casaro is considered to be one of the most important, influential and innovative Italian’s film poster artists producing hundreds of works dedicated to the cinema. In 1953, at the age of 18, he joined Studio Favalli, a famous design and art studio in Rome. Three years later he opened his own studio. In 1965 Dino De Laurentiis hired Casaro to design the poster images for the film The Bible: In the Beginning and he went on to design several more posters for De Laurentiis. His career then blossomed working for several different directors and film companies.

The poster is in very good folded condition.
