DRY ROT

£49.50

Original British 11 inch x 8 1/2 inch Trade Advertisement from Kinematograph Weekly for the 1956 Maurice Elvey Comedy DRY ROT, based on the play by John Roy Chapman and starring Ronald Shiner, Brian Rix, Sidney James, Michael Shepley, Joan Haythorne, Joan Sims, Heather Sears, Lee Patterson, Christian Duvaleix, Peggy Mount, John Chapman, Joan Benham, Shirley Anne Field, Miles Malleson, Raymond Glendenning and Wilfrid Brambell.

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 Advertisement is in very good condition.
