Contraband Spain Poster

A striking poster design for this Anglo-Spanish crime thriller about murder & intrigue on the French-Spanish border. This 1955 film starred Richard Greene, he of "The Adventures of Robin Hood" TV fame (1955-60). Englishman Greene had been developing an early career in Hollywood but in 1940 he abandoned his contract & returned to enlist, eventually rising through the ranks to become a captain. "Contraband Spain" was made just before Greene found fame & fortune with the Robin Hood TV series, Greene's rugged good looks, captured on the poster here.

 

The poster deesign is particularly good being colourful, vibrant, tantalising & with a great sense of movement (the speeding car). Unfortunately the poster artist is currently unknown but whoever it was created a great piece of poster art. 

 

This particular poster remains in fantastic condition. There are a few small edge nicks creases, two minor conservation repairs to cross-folds & writing to the reverse which does NOT show through. A really great example of 1950's cinema poster art!
