DRY ROT

89 Original 9 3/4 inch by 7 1/2 Key Book Stills for the 1956 Maurice Elvey Comedy DRY ROT, based on the play by John Roy Chapman and starring Ronald Shiner, Brian Rix, Christian Duvaleix, Sidney James, Peggy Mount, Michael Shepley, Miles Malleson, Lee Patterson, Heather Sears, Joan Sims, Joan Haythorne and Raymond Glendenning.

Three dodgy bookies, Alf Tubbe (Shiner), Flash Harry (James), and Fred Phipps (Rix), plan to rig a horse race by kidnapping the fancied horse and its French jockey (Duvaleix). They stay at a country house hotel near the racecourse, run by Colonel and Mrs Wagstaff (Shepley & Haythorne), where they conceal the horse Sweet Lavender (and later the jockey) in a hidden cellar.

The title Dry Rot refers to the rotten wood on the hotel stairs, which regularly catches every character unawares.

The stills, many of which are mounted on thin black card, are in very good condition with minor surface marks.
