    Description

    Pool of London (GFD, 1951). Full-Bleed British Crown (17" X 22") James Boswell Artwork.
    A crewman and part-time petty smuggler named Dan MacDonald (Bonar Colleano) suddenly finds himself a leading suspect in both murder and a diamond robbery when he agrees to unknowingly smuggle the wrong item for the wrong people. Ealing Studios produced this tense and gritty post-War noir drama, directed by Basil Dearden who also did The Blue Lamp (1950). This is considered a important film with images of long lost London, that has romance, robbery and racial prejudice. Heritage has never offered a poster from this film until this scarce country-of-origin poster with superb art by James Boswell (1906-1971), an artist whose work of wartime life hangs in the British Museum. There is creasing at the bottom, tears at the edge with archival tape on the verso. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
