The Millers Wife Poster

UK Quad silk-screened poster for "The Miller's Wife" (1957) starring Sophia Loren (the film was originally released in 1955 in Italy & later picked up by Gala for a limited UK release).

This is a low-budget but nonetheless startling poster design. The main feature is a photographic image of Ms Loren which has been embellished in the Pop-Art style of the times (note the blood red lips & yellow tinged hair reminiscent of Warhol's Marilyn Monroe images). The contrasting expanses of red & yellow makes further impact. Not subtle but extremely effective as a piece of poster advertising. This is one of the earliest Pop-Art influencecd UK cinema posters we can think of.

There are a couple of minor unobtrusive original print faults, pin-holes/marks to rim but this scarce poster displays to excellent effect & this is rare too.
