Pennies From Heaven Poster

A scarce Quad poster for the 1981 film adaptation of Dennis Potter's musical drama "Pennies From Heaven". First scripted as a BBC TV series in 1978 (which catapulted Bob Hoskins to stardom), the later film version was also blessed with a screenplay by Potter. The film was a critical success, garnering 3 Oscar nominations, including one for Potter.

 

The Quad design re-formats the Bob Peak artwork used in the American advertising campaign (US 1-Sheet shown courtesy of emovieposter.com), the illustration being very typical of Peak's work at the time (see "Apocalypse Now" 1979, "Star Trek" 1979 & "Excalibur" 1981).

 

This poster is hard to find but this particular example is exceptional being unfolded. There are 2 marks to the reverse of the poster (left top & bottom) but as can be seen, the poster displays to excellent effect.
