Goldfinger Poster

A fascinating bespoke card poster (12"x 20") for "Goldfinger" (1964) & other films in Leamington Spa & Stratford-Upon-Avon. The poster retains it's original hanging cord at the top & would have been displayed in local shops to inform the community about the films on offer.

 

What is particularly interesting about this is the date. First, we have to recognise that the advertising viewing date for "Goldfinger" is a mis-print: "Monday 25th Oct" would be 1965 but all the other dates detailed ("Sunday 25th October" etc) relate to 1964. On this basis & given that "Goldfinger" was enjoying it's 2nd week on show, it means that from the London premiere (17th Sept 1964) it took 4 1/2 weeks for the film to get out to Leamington Spa. This gives us an idea of the "roll-out" for big blockbusters such as this. It would have taken weeks more for the film to be distributed to smaller towns & the more far-flung parts of the country.

 

The poster has slight fading to "Irma La Douce" but overall remains in very good condition. An interesting piece & though no artwork, an original UK "Goldfinger" poster & at a fraction of the cost of the corresponding Quad.
