The Long Haul Poster

A classy poster for this little-known British film-noir crime drama from 1957. Though a low budget production, the film is well regarded, Diana Dors delivering a performance that transcends the normal demands of the archetypal blonde-bombshell.

 

The poster illustration is interesting, the triangulated beam of light against the spartan background, typifing the penchant for minimalism & clean geometric shapes in certain aspects of 1950's graphic design. In contrast to the light frothy films that were ubiquitous at the time, "The Long Haul" was clearly marketed as something darker, more theatening & with a bite.

 

This is an excellent example of a British film-noir poster. It is not a title that appears often & genuinely deserves the appelation "rare". This example has a few pin-holes to corners/rim but as can be seen, overall it remains in excellent condition.
