Carry On Cleo Poster

An original mounted page (10"x 12") from an ABC cinema magazine presenting the notorious & banned Chantrell poster imagery for "Carry On Cleo" (1964).


This was the poster design which landed Chantrell in court, the distributors of the "Cleopatra" (1963) 20th Century Fox taking exception to Chantrell's spoofing of their prior poster campaign. Given the litigation the ABC magazine could not be distributed with this imagery displayed but rather than re-print the entire magazine, the offending page was over-pasted (see image below). In this case the original page has been "released", conservation mounted & is photographed inside a protective sleeve.
