Rare Film Posters



Original British 11 inch x 17 inch 8 page Illustrated Brochure with centre double page poster for the 1939 Anthony Kimmins Ealing Studios Comedy CHEER BOYS CHEER starring Nova Pilbeam, Edmund Gwenn, Jimmy O’Dea, Moore Marriott, Graham Moffatt, C.V. France, Alexander Knox and Peter Coke.

Two young lovers are caught on either side of a dispute over the territorial ambitions of the monolithic Ironside brewery against an ‘olde-worlde’, traditional family-run concern, Greenleaf.

The film has been compared to Ealing Studios itself: small scale and cosy, run by a close-knit family that speaks its own language and only shows its steely core when the chips are down. It has also been seen as an allegory for the behaviour of the Nazis in the run up to the war. References to Ironside’s territorial ambitions, the language of annexation, the use of grandiose fascist art deco design – to say nothing of the shot of Ironside reading Mein Kampf – are quite explicit.

The Brochure is in very good condition with minor staple rust marks.
