Carry On Cowboy Poster

A lovely "Carry On Cowboy" ABC cinema poster, here the film supported by the 1965 film "Change Partners". This poster was used at the Hounslow ABC & I have a feeling that I attended a performance here at the time! The poster can be dated to a 1966 release, making this a 1st re-release ABC poster.

 

The ABC cinema chain had an eclectic approach to their poster advertising. Sometimes, they would use the same poster artwork as that provided by the distributor for the general release (usually adapted with an "ABC" strap-line to the header). On other occasions, however, completely new artwork would be created by ABC's in-house poster artist Edward (Ted) Verrum. In the case of this Carry On poster, Verrum has simply re-drawn Chantrell's design for the Quad. Chantrell actually provided 2 posters, this "saloon door" version & another with Sid shooting Hawtrey's feathers off (see images below). Verrum's illustration omits the six shooter poking out of the saloon door & the design on Hawrtrey's dress is also different (Chantrell's depiction of Joan Sims wasn't particularly flattering but Verrum makes her look really foreboding!).

 

Irrespective, this is an interesting & scarce addition to the Carry On canon of film posters & this example remains in excellent condition.
