"Derek Taylor was a national journalist when he was assigned to write a review of a Beatles concert. He had been expected by his editors to write a piece critical of what at that time was considered by the national press as an inconsequential teen fad. However, he was enchanted by the group and instead sang their praises. Shortly afterwards, he was invited to meet The Beatles and soon became a trusted journalist in their circle.

"As The Beatles gained national attention in Britain, Taylor's editors conceived of running a column...

BLACKMAIL (1929) / DONALD CALTHROP-SIGNED PHOTO
BLACKMAIL (1929) / DONALD CALTHROP-SIGNED PHOTO $1,000.00

Vintage original 9; x 7;" (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, UK. Anny Ondra, Sara Allgood, Charles Paton, John Longden, Donald Calthrop, dir: Alfred Hitchcock, Sono-Art. Historic film, not only being the first sound film to be directed by Alfred Hitchcock, but also noted as the first British sound film. Hitchcock and crew were still using silent film techniques, but this added to the suspenseful atmosphere.

In the same dark genre of Notorious and Vertigo, the story involves a woman whose boyfriend is a Scotland Yard detective, far more interested in his work than...

BLOW-UP (1966) $350.00

Set of eight (8) vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) color photos, UK. David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, dir: Michelangelo Antonioni; MGM. Scarce complete set of British color stills for this British film (it was technically registered as a British-Italian-US co-production, but, one which was both set and shot in London).

The quintessential film that expresses the swinging London of the 1960s, with a great set of images which nicely epitomize this mystery film about the nature of truth. JUST ABOUT FINE.

Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, David Hemmings, John Castle, Jane Birkin, Verushka, dir: Michelangelo Antonioni; MGM. The story of a mod London photographer who believes he has photographed a murder. Forever controversial and even hated (particularly when first released), it is Antonioni's comment on society of the time, and human nature.

The film was made by MGM in the UK under a newly-created company called Premier Productions. Because this company had no agreement with the Production Code office (as MGM did), the frontal...

CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958)
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958) $1,400.00

Vintage original 30 x 40" (75 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives, Judith Anderson, Madeleine Sherwood, dir: Richard Brooks; MGM.

The highly adult filming of Tennessee Williams' work was paramount in the loosening of the strict censorship code in film making, as were all films of Williams' work during this period. It was an actor's film, with each star perfectly cast to their role. If there were any question of it, Elizabeth Taylor was now grown up and a fine actress in her mature roles. It is difficult to think of anyone else as Maggie...

This set is complete with no-holds-barred images including those of nudity and violence. Though not banned in the UK as popular belief would have it, the film did receive an X-rating and director Kubrick pulled it from distribution...

Vintage original 30 x 40" (76 x 102 cm.) quad poster, UK. Donald Pleasance, Lionel Stander,Francoise Dorleac, dir: Roman Polanski; Compton Films. Polanski's third feature, a masterpiece of surreal black comedy -- a murderous gangster invades the island home of an already-dysfunctional married couple, with hilarious and horrifying results.

This original British poster for this classic British film is a famous surreal design by Polanski's contemporary, Polish film maker and graphic designer Jan Lenica. Reissues as well as later bootleg reprints of this poster have turned up, but they do not utilize the full color scheme of this famous '60s design.

Folded,...

Vintage original 26 x 39" (67 x 100 cm.) one sheet poster, UK. Stanley Holloway, Donald Sinden, Joan Rice, Odile Versois, James Hayter, dir: Ralph Thomas; GFD.

Delightful caricatures highlight this lively poster showing the principal male characters coming into port in France. The story revolved around the naive middle-aged members of a London pub darts team who take a trip to Bologna. While there, each has their own adventure -- a day to remember.

Folded, unrestored, minor stains, censor stamp at bottom left, extensive white tape on back, VERY GOOD.

DIANA DORS / PICTUREGOER (ca. 1955) $300.00

Vintage original 19; x 29" (50 x 75 cm.) poster, UK. During 1955 and 1956, Diana Dors wrote a series of articles for her native UK movie magazine Picturegoer. In them, she talked about her work in British films and her trip to Hollywood to make American films. Usually the covers for this magazine were in duotone, making this full-color promotional poster advertising Diana and her stories unique. Making her debut as a teen, Dors remained popular and working in various film and TV projects until her early death in 1984.

This magazine promo is from her most prolific period, in...
