    Hue and Cry (General Film Distributors, 1947). Full-Bleed British Double Crown (20" X 30") Edward Bawden Artwork.
    This fun British comedy/drama follows a group of street boys who set out to foil a gang of crooks when the police ignore their warnings. Of course, who would believe that a group of criminals were using detective stories in a boys' magazine to transmit information about their crimes? Harry Fowler stars as the leader of the boys, with the always entertaining Alastair Sim co-starring as the comic's creator. This was the first in a long line of brilliant comedies from Ealing Studios, and was also the first poster produced for Ealing by the award-winning artist Edward Bawden. This is a first time offer from Heritage of this rare country-of-origin poster which has some edge wear, creasing, pinholes, and small edge tears. There is a tear at the top with archival tape on the verso. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.

    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
