Rare Film Posters



Original British 30 inch x 40 inch Quad Poster for the 1951 Fergus McDonell Drama PRIVATE INFORMATION, based on nthe play by Gordon Glennon and starring Jill Esmond, Jack Watling, Carol Marsh, Gerard Heinz, Mercy Haystead, Norman Shelley, Lloyd Pearson, Henry Caine, Brenda de Banzie.

Jill Esmond, once married to Laurence Olivier, did what may be her finest work on this film, in which she played Charlotte Carson, who takes on the local government which has shut its collective eyes to the shoddy inadequacies of a housing estate. Jill had the chance here of a starring role and seventy-odd years later she is still impressive to watch in it: short of stature, middle-aged, forthright, devoted to her children, she convincingly confronts and scores a victory over the corrupt council. Everything she does in this film is heartfelt and thoughtful: she makes an ordinary woman with the bit between her teeth someone to cheer for.

Screen printed by Gordon’s of Manchester
