Rare Film Posters



Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1967 Michael Winner Comedy I’LL NEVER FORGET WHAT’S ‘IS NAME starring Oliver Reed, Orson Welles, Carol White, Harry Andrews, Michael Hordern, Wendy Craig and Marianne Faithfull.

Advertising golden boy Andrew Quint is fed up with his fabulously successful life. In very dramatic fashion, he quits his job to return to writing for a small literary magazine. He wants to leave his former life behind, going as far as saying good-bye to his wife and mistresses. He finds, however, that it’s not so easy to escape the past.

Poster art by Vic Fair (18 March 1938 – 24 February 2017).

Vic Fair is recognised as one of the most significant designers working on British Film Posters during the 1960s and 1970s. He was born in Chadwell Heath, Essex and did evening classes at St. Martin’s College of Art. He worked in the Arthur S. Dixon agency (who had accounts with Columbis, Disney and Warwick) from 1954 until the 1965 merger with Downtons, becoming Downton-Dixon, under the aegis of Eric Pulford. “..there was a young fella called Vic Fair. Marvellous! In those days he was about 20 but I could see the possibilities and every time I got a job I used to give Vic the chance to design a poster for it and that went on for years and he never got one accepted. And then he did. And then he became a severe competitor to me. And designing the posters he did the same as me, he would sometimes do finished artwork, not very often, but he would get either Brian Bysouth or Fratini to do the finished artwork.” (Eric Pulford). Probably his most well-known poster artwork was for David Bowie’s “The Man Who Fell to Earth” in 1976.

The poster is in very good condition and has been Conservation Paper-Backed.
