VALUE FOR MONEY

£260.00

Original British 27 inch x 40 inch 1-Sheet Poster for the 1955 Ken Annakin Romantic Comedy VALUE FOR MONEY, based on the novel by Derrick Boothroyd and starring John Gregson, Diana Dors, Susan Stephen, Derek Farr, Frank Pettingell, Charles Victor, Ernest Thesiger, Jill Adams, Joan Hickson and Donald Pleasence.

John Gregson stars as Chayley Broadbent, a young Yorkshire businessman leading a dull, perfunctory life. He inherits a sizeable fortune, plus a prosperous textile factory, from his wealthy father. Soon after, he has a fight with his straight-laced girlfriend, Ethel (Susan Stephen) and leaves her, taking off for London. Once there, he plunges into the nightclub circuit, falling in love with showgirl Diana Dors. But she mistakes him for an impoverished chap and thus rejects his marriage proposal. When she finally figures out the truth, she makes a beeline for him, but by then he’s onto her golddigging motives and instead opts to return to Ethel.

The poster is in very good folded condition but was folded in half an extra time resulting in a vertical foldline at left and right. There is some tattering along the foldlines and around the edges of the poster.
