Payroll Poster

An original 1st release poster for this 1961 British crime drama. This was a fairly gritty film & still holds up well today. Set & filmed in the NE (Gateshead & Newcastle), the film contains some great period footage of the old industrial areas & new burgeoning housing estates. Like most "regional" films of the time, however, there is little attempt to honour local accents.


The poster is a great Chantrell composition with colour tinted photos of the main cast, underneath a blazing day-glo title & with painted artwork to the left. NB. the similarity with Chantrell's 1965 artwork for "The Big Job": http://www.chantrellposter.com/The-Big-Job-(Carry-On)-Poster-Artwork-Original/351


The poster has a couple of minor edge nicks & has been irregularly folded but overall remains in excellent condition. A scarce title for a very good British film & a nice example of Chantrell's artistry.
