£4,500.00

Original British 27 inch x 40 inch 1-Sheet Poster for the 1947 Robert Hamer Ealing Studios Drama IT ALWAYS RAINS ON SUNDAY, based on a novel by Arthur la Bern and starring Googie Withers, John McCallum, Edward Chapman, Jack Warner, Jimmy Hanley, Sydney Tafler, Susan Shaw, Nigel Stock, Patricia Plunkett, Betty Ann Davies, Jane Hylton, David Liney, John Slater, Meier Tzelniker, John Carol, Alfie Bass, Frederick Piper, Michael Howard, Hermione Baddeley, John Salew, Gladys Henson, Edie Martin, Betty Baskcomb and Gilbert Davis. The film was produced by Michael Balcon with a script by Angus MacPhail, Robert Hamer & Henry Cornelius, cinematography by Douglas Slocombe and music by Ernest Irving.

Stunning Ealing Studios working-class drama, set in the East End of London, in which escaped convict McCallum turns up on the doorstep of his now married mistress and demands to hide out. There’s a finely etched picture of 40s East End life, and the striving for a poetic dimension in the fatalist theme of doomed love in a drab urban setting.

The poster was in very good folded condition and has been conservation paper-backed.
