Where No Vultures Fly Poster

Rare UK Quad poster for the Ealing film "Where No Vultures Fly" (1951) aka "Ivory Hunter" with poster artwork by John Minton.

This Ealing film recounts the true story of the establishment of one of the early wildlife reserves in Africa. Although almost 70 years old the film provided an early warning of the threat to Africa's wildlife resources & was well recieved, being a commercial hit for Ealing . "Where No Vultures Fly" was also selected for "The Royal Performance Film" of 1951 (see sticker bottom right). Ealing Films artist John Minton had a very idiosyncratic style, this poster being an excellent example of his work. Sadly Minton committed suicide 6 years after painting this particular commission (see Sim Branaghan's book "British Film Posters").

The poster has pin-hole damage to corners, small areas of paper loss to two crossfolds, several small conservation tape repairs to the reverse, writing on the back that does not show through etc. These issues are cosmetic & given the "busy" nature of the poster design, they are unobtrusive & the poster displays to very good effect. A rare poster, an early symbol of conservation consciousness & a fabulous piece of 1950's poster illustration.
