The One That Got Away Poster

A fine piece of poster illustration for a relatively little known WWII genre film & something of a minor classic too. Just 12 years after the end of the War & in amongst a flurry of patriotic cinematic takes on the conflict, here is a British film "celebrating" the true story of the only Luftwaffe POW officer who ever escaped from Britain back to German lines. Later Hammer/Amicus stalwart Roy Ward Baker directed the film & skilfully executes the task of converting the home-grown audience into supporters of Hardy Kruger's escape-fixated German - the poster depiction capturing the determination of the escapee.


The poster has slight paper loss to upper left rim & there is a tiny area of very faint "bleed-through" from writing to the reverse (lower left just adjacent to the look-out tower).
