The Square Ring Poster

"The Square Ring" was a boxing drama from Ealing Studios dating from 1953. Being over 60 years old & bearing the Ealing pedigree, this Quad title is collectable & very difficult to find. The poster design is typically classy in the Ealing manner. Designed by HA Rotholz, the poster incorporates photographic snapshots against a minimalist blood-red backdrop.


Rotholz was a German emigre whose family escaped the Nazis in 1933. Rotholz not only designed posters for Ealing but also the Post Office & the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (important when Britain still had some industry). He contributed designs for the 1948 Olympics & had a successful career in corporate advertising. The quality of Rotholz's work is shown by his inclusion in the collections of both the V&A & the Imperial War museums.

"The Square Ring" featured a strong cast including Jack Warner, Kay Kendall, Bill Travers, Bill Owen & in one of her earliest film performances, Joan Collins. Sid James also appeared.


The poster has various pin-holes to corners/rim, foldline wear & a few small edge tears (these repaired to reverse with tape). As can be seen, however, this poster still presents to excellent effect. A lovely piece of post-war poster design.
