Second Chorus Poster

A fascinating original UK cinema poster (15"x 20") advertising films on offer at two cinemas (the Roxy & the Palladium) for the week of 11th Aug 1941, including Second Chorus (1940) with Fred Astaire & Paulette Goddard, The Return Of Frank James (1940) with Henry Fonda & Gene Tierney, Comrade X (1940) with Clark Gable etc.

Although a few colour Quads were printed during WWII (often on the reverse of older posters such were the wartime shortages of paper/ink etc), pure text based posters like this were more commonly on offer. Many artists/printers etc were also conscripted into the war effort & no longer available to design & illustrate full-colour posters during the war years. As an example Tom Chantrell left his job in advertising spent several years in army bomb disposal before being moved to the production of wartime propaganda posters.

Poster with some corner/rim damage but this remains an important & poignant historical piece.
