Victim Poster

For a film about the blackmailing of homosexuals, the angst involved is conveyed admirably by the poster design, the red/black image of a hand-wringing Dirk Bogarde being starkly effective. Until the 1967 decriminalisation of homosexuality, gays in the UK were prone to blackmail. The fact that this 1961 film tackled the subject head-on, was an achievement given the restrictive nature of the times. The poster represents an attractive & important piece of social history.


The poster has wear to fold-lines. There is an old 4" tape repair to the reverse of tear to upper edge but this is hardly noticeable.
