HEAVENS ABOVE!

£350.00

Original British 40 inch x 81 inch 3-Sheet Poster for the 1963 John Boulting Comedy HEAVENS ABOVE! starring Peter Sellers, Cecil Parker, Isabel Jeans, Ian Carmichael, Bernard Miles, Brock Peters, Eric Sykes, Irene Handl, Miriam Karlin, Miles Malleson, Eric Barker, William Hartnell, Roy Kinnear, Joan Hickson, Kenneth Griffit, Mark Eden, Basil Dignam, Colin Gordon, Ludovic Kennedy, Malcolm Muggeridge, Derek Nimmo, Conrad Phillip, Nicholas Phipps, Cardew Robinson, Olive Sloane, Marianne Stone and Thorley Walters.

Sellers tickles the funnybone as a clergyman in this entertaining satirical comedy about a prison parson mistakenly transferred to a posh parish where he gets involved with mad acts of charity and the British space race.

Poster art by Donald Parker. His cartoons appeared in The Observer, and in 1961 and 1962 he began contributing a characteristic series of cartoons for the New Statesman. At first his work alternated with that of “Niky”, but on 13 April 1962 he took over the feature altogether, and ran it until the end of the year. In 1963 Parker provided the illustrations for John Boulting’s novel “Heaven’s Above”, and in 1973 he illustrated David Storey’s short novel “Edward”.

The poster is in very good folded condition in 2 separate sheets with slight splits at 2 cross folds.
