£450.00

Original British 77 1/4 inch x 79 3/4 inch 6-Sheet poster for the 1950 Herbert Wilcox Wartime Drama ODETTE, with a screenplay by Warren Chetham Strode and starring Anna Neagle, Trevor Howard, Marius Goring, Peter Ustinov and Bernard Lee.

Odette Sansom was a French spy who worked as an SOE operative in occupied France. She was captured and sent to Ravensbruck concentration camp, but survived the war.

Odette Sansom was born in France, but later moved to England. In 1941 she responded to requests by the War Office for people to send photographs of France. These photographs encouraged the War office to recruit Odette into the Special Operations Executive SOE; the SOE was responsible for training agents to be dropped into France.

The poster is in good to very good folded condition. There are some creases and tears along the foldlines that were on the outside when the poster was fully folded. There are some creases, smudges, and tiny tears on some foldlines, and some tiny paper loss at some crossfolds.
