Night of the Big Heat Poster

This is an unusual UK 1-sheet poster for the 1967 scifi-horror film, "Night of the Big Heat". Starring both Christopher Lee & Peter Cushing & with director Terence Fisher at the helm, the film had more than a touch of "Hammer" about it. What is unusual about this poster are the dimensions which are 26"x 39" rather than the standard 27"x 40" for UK 1-sheets. The poster has not been trimmed & is original (not a repro) but the difference in size is perhaps explained by the fact that the film was produced by the short-lived Planet Film Productions (active 1963-67). Planet chose a simple low budget photographic composition for the poster & used a printers not known for cinema poster printing, U.E. Vision Ltd. UE also printed the corresponding Quad which boasted the same imagery & was similarly under-sized at 26"x 39".


The poster remains in excellent condition. An interesting addition to the British scifi-horror canon.
