    “Penguin, Joker, Riddler and Catwoman, too ! The sum of the angles of that rectangle is too monstrous to contemplate !”

    Long before Tim Burton re-invented him, Chris Chris Nolan re-imagined him and Ben Affleck played him as an older more mature Caped Crusader there was BATMAN 1960’s style, as the decade’s most popular TV show was bat-ransported to this alternative movie poster. “Batman ’66” by Mark Pagacz.

It captures the seduction Newmar brought to the character while conveying the light-hearted feel of the beloved 1960s Batman TV series.

  • Just a Gigolo Movie Poster

    Just a Gigolo

    £275.00

    “He has no skills and can only find menial, low-paying jobs. He decides to become a gigolo to lonely rich women.”

    Supreme example of Tom Chantrell’s stunning artwork; an extremely rare original 1978 UK Quad film poster for the David Bowie drama “Just a Gigolo”. This film was perfect for Bowie (you could genuinely believe he was a 1920s pseudo aristocrat) as the extravagantly named Paul Ambrosius von Przygodski. Tom Chantrell’s artwork (unique to the British release) places Bowie centre stage, cleverly portrayed in black and white whilst the supporting cast, including Kim Novak and Marlene Dietrich (her last movie appearance) are featured in full colour. With only minimal handling wear, this originally rolled (as issued), unrestored example displays to beautiful effect. The deep black background contrasted with vibrant colours makes for a truly impressive piece. One of Bowie’s most stylish movie posters and a fantastic piece of highly collectable original movie and music memorabilia and a perfect showcase for Chantrell’s incredible talent at catching an actors likeness.

    Trivia: The last on-screen appearance by Marlene Dietrich. German press reports claimed she was paid $250,000 for two days’ work.

  • Prisoners-of-the-Lost-Universe

    Prisoners of the Lost Universe

    £95.00

    A classic case of the poster artwork being significantly more exciting than the film it was attempting to sell to the cinema-going public, this is the UK quad for the release of Terry Marcel’s low-budget sci-fi adventure Prisoners of the Lost Universe. The poster was designed and illustrated by the late, great British artist Tom Chantrell whose dynamic and colourful work featured on hundreds of posters over a forty year period. His official website features a great biography written by Sim Branaghan, author of the must-own book British Film Posters. Chantrell illustrated many classic poster designs, including several Hammer posters such as the brilliant quad for ‘One Million Years B.C.’, and was also responsible for the iconic Star Wars quad.  Very rare and hard to find this originally rolled (as issued) example from 1983 displays very well with minimal age and handling wear. It looks fantastic and presents very well and represents a fantastic piece of very collectable Tom Chantrell poster artwork and  a fine piece of original film memorabilia.

  • Satanic Rites of Dracula Movie Poster

    Satanic Rites of Dracula

    £1,295.00

    “My revenge has spread over centuries and has just begun!”

    The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1974) was the eighth Hammer film and the seventh and final one to feature Christopher Lee as Count Dracula and the last time Lee and Peter Cushing would star together. The British poster campaign was illustrated by Hammer’s regular artist Tom Chantrell. The green-wash background contrasts effectively with the red Day-Glo title of the film, with Lee’s Dracula the focus of attention against a London skyline featuring the familiar landmarks of Big Ben and the Post-Office Tower. Presented unrestored and in excellent original folded (as issued) condition, this originally belonged to the renowned horror historian and collector Forrest Ackerman and is accompanied by a certificate from his Estate. A personal favourite of mine and featured in Marcus Hearn’s excellent book “The Art of Hammer”. An excellent investment grade example of original rare Hammer Horror movie memorabilia.

    Trivia: Count Dracula poses as a multi-millionaire who is never seen in public and never photographed. A 1970s audience would inevitably have been reminded of the eccentric and reclusive Howard Hughes.
