On the reverse is the 1960 Ken Hughes Biographical Drama THE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE, based on the book “The Trials Of Oscar Wilde” by Montgomery Hyde and starring Peter Finch, Yvonne Mitchell, James Mason, Nigel Patrick, Lionel Jeffries, John Fraser, Sonia Dresdel, Maxine Audley, James Booth, Emrys Jones, Lloyd Lamble, Paul Rogers, Ian Fleming, Laurence Naismith, Naomi Chance as Lili Langtry and Meredith Edwards.

At the height of his fame, Oscar Wilde angers the Marquis of Queensberry by having what is (correctly) believed to be a romantic relationship with Queensberry’s son Lord Alfred Douglas (“Bosie”), who is twenty years Wilde’s junior. When Queensberry slanders Wilde, the artist decides to take the matter to court and brings about his own downfall.

The Trade Advert is in very good condition.
