Plain Sailing Poster

A scarce UK 1-Sheet poster for this 1957 comedy with a nautical theme. The film was originally destined to be issued as "True As A Turtle" & indeed some posters were printed with this title. It may be that the distributors wanted to push the nautical theme more obviously & hence the title was changed. It looks like the title here was amended at the printers as there appears to be text underlying the "Plain Sailing". The poster presents some great cartoon illustration, the kind of which was frequently used on British comedy posters of the time. Artwork possibly by Harry Stevens (see "British Film Posters" by Sim Branaghan).


A few scattered pin-holes & light fold-line wear but overall in very nice condition.
