Rare Film Posters



Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1959 Michael Relph Comedy DESERT MICE starring Alfred Marks, Sidney James, Dora Bryan, Dick Bentley, Reginald Beckwith, Irene Handl, Liz Fraser and Marius Goring.

A World War II farce that follows the antics of an ENSA group. Fresh from the music halls, they bumble their way from army camp to camp.

Poster art by Renato Fratini (1932 – 1973). An Italian commercial artist who specialised in cinema posters. In Italy he worked in Augusto Favalli’s studio, a major producer of Italian posters. He then moved to London at the behest of Eric Pulford, who ran the Downton agency, which had accounts with Rank and several other film companies. There Fratini enjoyed a successful career throughout the 1960s.
