FATHER CAME TOO

£350.00

Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1963 Peter Graham Scott Comedy FATHER CAME TOO starring James Robertson Justice, Stanley Baxter, Leslie Phillips, Ronnie Barker, Sally Smith, John Bluthal, Kenneth Cope, Peter Jones, Hugh Lloyd, Arthur Mullard, Cardew Robinson and Terry Scott.

The newlywed Munroes purchase a rundown, ramshackle cottage and plan to fix it up themselves, primarily to escape her meddling father. They hadn’t appreciated the scope of the work needed to get the place up to scratch, however, and have no choice but to reluctantly ask him for help. Unfortunately, he brings in a useless builder and things go from bad to worse!

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.
