    Description

    They Came to a City (Ealing, 1944). Folded, Very Fine. British Poster (19.5" X 56.5") Hans Arnold Rothholz Artwork.
    Hailing from its country of origin, Heritage is pleased to present the uniquely-formatted country of origin piece. An adaptation of J.B. Priestley's 1943 play, this British film is an exploration of just what an ideal world would look like from the perspectives of different people. Many of the play's original stage actors star in the film, with a cast headed up by John Clements, Googie Withers, Raymond Huntley, Renee Gadd, and Eva Reeve. Hans Arnold Rothholz is the artist behind this imaginative film's stark and surreal posters, with this particular example printed in two pieces and in very nice condition. It shows some slight edge wear with minor tears, as well as some faint foxing.
