DEAD OF NIGHT (1945) UK half sheet


Vintage original 22 x 28” (55 x 70 cm.) poster, U.K. Michael Redgrave, Roland Culver, Sally Anne Howes, Googie Winters, Mervyn Johns, dir: Alberto Cavalcanti, Charles Crichton, Basil Dearden, Robert Hamer;   Guests at a country house take turns telling supernatural tales and the tales are presented in individual segments, with different casts and directed by a different director. Piecing unconnected tales together in the horror genre became the norm after this bold experimental film proved to be popular. The nightmarish stories are effectively illustrated in the posters art. This is an extremely rare poster, printed during the period that paper was consistently recycled and conserved for the war effort in England. It is printed on the back of a portion of a poster featuring an image of Winston Churchill. Stored rolled, there is just some minor edge staining and wear and a few tiny edge tears. ABOUT FINE.
