Genevieve Poster

A linen-backed UK 1-Sheet "Credits Style" poster for the classic British comedy "Genevieve" (1953). This is a first release poster & is incredibly rare. In 30-years of collecting/dealing we've never seen another one like this. An alternate "Artwork Style" UK 1-Sheet was also created (see below, image courtesy of emovieposter) but this style of poster (& the subsequent re-release versions) are relatively common. As far as original UK "Genevieve" posters go, the "Credits Style" 1-Sheet is as rare as the full-colour first release Quad. A real find!

 

Intersting to note that of the five critics quotes included on the poster, three reference the war. In a Britain ravaged by the after-effects of war, mired in austerity & still suffering rationing, light-hearted comedy films like "Genevieve" proved to be a welcome antidote & proved very popular.

 

The poster has been cleaned & linen-backed with restoration to tears on bottom rim. The poster still has some light surface marking & has an extra fold running 1" vertically from top to bottom of right hand border. As can be seen, however, the poster presents well & is a genuinely rare piece.
