Original Vtg Hell Drivers UK Quad - 1957 - 30"x40". This is a rare poster - especially in mint, as-new condition. With its dynamic artwork by Angelo Casselon and Printed by Charles & Reed Ltd. This poster is generally recognised as one of the very best Quad poster designs of the 1950s. Incorporating the stone lithograph printing of the period and onto heavier matt paper stock; it creates an almost'porous/3-D' quality - impossible to replicate using modern printing technology.
And promoting one of the best movies in this action/drama genre to come out of a British studio during this prolific period of film-making. The script was based on the real-life experiences of writer John Kruse, and confidently directed by US, Hollywood/McCarthyism-escapee, Cy Enfield (Zulu). New Vista Vision technology for the intense outdoor & night-time.
With an authentically gritty backdrop of an under-regulated haulage & road building industry; and focussing on the bitter rivalries between the members of a truck-driving gang - over tonnage bonuses and dance-hall gals. And combined with a stellar cast; all at the top of their game: with Stanley Baker, Patrick McGoohan, and Herbert Lom. Closely supported by Sid James, Gordon Jackson, Alfie Bass & Norman Hartnell - and. Sean Connery - in one of his earliest film roles.Which was well-received an eager, 50s post-war/boom-time cinema-going public. And because of all the above - this poster is an important popular culture artefact in its own right. This poster really does now deserve to be framed & displayed. In the Mid-90s I collected Vintage Movie Posters: And all being offered here have been carefully stored, in poster tubes in cool, dry clean conditions since.
Concurrently & subsequently I have also collected a number of music posters - again, all being offered are originals only. Additionally, as I know the disappointment of receiving things that are not as presented, I'll be making every effort to describe things clearly & honestly - whilst giving any further information I can. In the event of a outside-UK sale - all assistance will be given to reduce import duty.
