Au Pair Girls Poster

UK Quad poster for "Au Pair Girls" (1972). Bizarrely, this sex-comedy was directed by established mainstream director Val Guest.  Like many such films of the time, better-known British comedians, in this case John Le Mesurier, participated alongside the willing starlets (such was the parlous state of the British film industry in the early 1970's that many actors were less than fussy about the kind of projects they took on !).  For more information about the film & this genre in general, please refer to Simon Sheridan's excellent book "Keeping The British End Up" 2001.  

 

The poster was obviously a relatively low-budget commmission & Chantrell uses a device that he employed on other risque titles (ie, "Sex In Sweden") using a photographic back-drop which is intersected by the film title, the positioning of the lettering, teasingly preserving the young ladies modesty.  

 

This poster has a single vertical foldline & remains in superb condition. (mc)
