SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC

£895.00

Original British 16 1/2 inch x 22 inch Lift Bill Poster for the 1948 Robert Hamer Ealing Studios Adventure SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC starring John Mills, James Robertson Justice, Derek Bond, Harold Warrender, Kenneth More, Reginald Beckwith, James McKechnie, John Gregson, Diana Churchill, Anne Firth, Norman Williams, Barry Letts, Bruce Seton, Clive Morton, Sam Kydd, Philip Stainton, Dandy Nichols, David Lines and Christopher Lee.

Selected as the Royal Film Performance of 1948, John Mills gives an exceptional performance as Robert Falcon Scott in this epic tale and subsequent failure to bring his team back from the South Pole. Told with as much honesty and accuracy as could be mustered while some of the associates were still alive.

Poster art by S John Woods.

The poster is in very good unfolded (rolled) condition with a fine diagonal crease bottom right.
