HAMLET

£260.00

Original 1950s Re-Release British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1948 Laurence Olivier Drama HAMLET, based on the play by William Shakespeare and starring Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Eileen Herlie, Basil Sydney, Felix Aylmer, Norman Wooland, Terence Morgan, Stanley Holloway, Peter Cushing, Esmond Knight and Anthony Quayle.

Olivier took best film and actor Oscars for his intelligent, marvellously cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy. Its main virtue is the splendid Old Vic-style acting from an overaged Sir Larry, Herlie, Sydney, Simmons and Holloway. Director Olivier swoops majestically around the castle at Elsinore and Desmond Dickinson’s black-and-white photography is beautifully crisp.

Scraper-board drawing by W. G. Easton produced by the London Press Exchange, founded in 1892 by Frederick Higginbottom and Reginald J.Sykes.

The poster is in very good folded condition.
