Virgin Island-director Pat Jackson's 1958 English tropical romance drama starring John Cassavetes-Virginia Maskell-Ruby Dee-Sidney Poitier.
This is a "country of origin" poster for this English film and it measures 27" x 39.75". It is in fair condition as there is a huge, jagged tear from the left edge extending past the center crossfold. It was once repaired with tape from the back. The poster is fragile and is a candidate for linen backing. Our watermark is on the image only and not the poster.
Uptight!, director Jules Dassin's update of the classic Irish novel "The Informer" by Liam O'Flaherty but made as a black race relations drama. Starring Ruby Dee, Raymond St. Jacques, Frank Silvera, Roscoe Lee Browne, and Julian Mayfield.
The poster is in good condition but was originally folded resulting in heavy fold and border wear. It has also darkened with age. It has been stored flat for some time so will be shipped rolled in a tube.
