    Brighton Rock (Associated British Picture Corporation, 1947). British One Sheet (27" X 40"). In 1999, when the British Film Institute voted for the 100 greatest British movies ever made, "Brighton Rock" made the list at number 15. The 24-year-old Richard Attenborough stars as Pinkie Brown, a vicious gang leader who kills a man during a racetrack robbery and then promises a waitress he'll marry her if she supplies him with an alibi. She agrees, and when Pinky gets off the hook he begins a methodical campaign to drive his new wife to suicide. "Brighton Rock" is noted for its stark detail and dark demeanor that ushered in a new realism to British crime cinema. There is slight border imperfection including small tears and nicks, and a touch of wear at the crossfolds. The poster has been professionally restored, rendering these defects hard to detect. Very Fine on Linen.
