TITLE: A TASTE OF HONEY
FORMAT: British Quad (30 x 40 inches)
STARS: Rita Tushingham, Dora Bryan, Robert Stephens.. DIRECTOR: Tony Richardson.
NOTES: A Taste of Honey was one of the great British kitchen sink dramas of the early 1960s, ranking alongside Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and Room At The Top. Adapted from Shelagh Delaney's gritty stage play about a plain young girl who leaves her uncaring and dissolute mother, becomes pregnant by a black sailor, befriends a homosexual, and gradually undergoes her rites of passage and becomes a woman. These were all difficult and controversial issues for the time, making A Taste of Honey a truly ground breaking and important film. This first release quad poster is quite a rarity.. The artwork for the poster is by Enzo Apicella (who has been called "one of the creators of the swinging sixties") and mimics the shoddy décor of a cheap bedsit. A super poster.
CONDITION: Grade A-. Some edge wear/fraying to left edge, one rather worn fold line resulting in some slight fraying around the 'y' in 'Delaney's', some misfolds but in nice clean condition with good paper quality and strong colours.. Folded, as issued.
