The Long Arm Poster

Though Ealing studios are best known for their classic comedy films, they produced films across a range of genres, including this crime drama "The Long Arm". A range of poster designers were used by Ealing (S John Woods, Fitton, Boswell, Mount, Boswell etc) & each brought a distinctive & classy interpretation to the Ealing poster canon. It is believed that artist Harry Stevens created the quad for "The Long Arm". Better known as a designer of London Transport posters, Stevens nonetheless provides a stylish design using tinted photographic imagery dissected by an angular black arm, the overall effect seemingly inspired by Saul Bass.


This particular poster remains in very nice condition (neat single pin-holes to corners, 2 tiny conservation repairs to cross-folds on reverse & a tiny blemish just under the arm). A fine piece of 50's poster imagery & an excellent example of an Ealing studios poster.
