Rare Film Posters



Original 1954 Release Swedish 27 1/2 inch x 39 1/4 inch Poster for the 1952 Ingmar Bergman Romantic Comedy WAITING WOMEN (KVINNORS VANTAN) starring Anita Bjork, Maj-Britt Nilsson, Eva Dahlbeck, Birger Malmsten, Karl-Arne Holmsten, Jarl Kulle and Gunnar Bjornstrand.

While at a summerhouse, awaiting their husbands’ return, a group of sisters-in-law recount stories from their respective marriages. Rakel (Björk) tells of receiving a visit from a former lover (Kulle); Marta (Nilsson) of agreeing to marry a painter (Malmsten) only after having his child; and Karin (Dahlbeck) of being stuck with her husband (Björnstrand) in an elevator, where they talk intimately for the first time in years. Making dexterous use of flashbacks, this engaging film is a veritable seedbed of Bergman themes, ranging from aspiring young love to the fear of loneliness, with the finale a masterpiece of chamber comedy.

The poster is in very good folded condition with corner tape marks, a tiny hole at the centre cross fold, slight separation at the top and bottom of the vertical fold. There is some paper reinforcement on the reverse of the top fold separation. The poster has been stored flat for some time, so will be shipped rolled.
