Shalimar Poster

Rare UK Quad cinema poster for "Shalimar" (1978) with poster artwork by Tom Beauvais, the poster coming from the private collection of the artist.

Tom Beauvais worked closely with Tom Chantrell at the Allardyce ad agency before setting up his own business, "Chapman-Beauvais" in 1975. Among the vast roster of posters Beauvais created were "Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid (1969), "Fantastic Voyage" (1966), Mad Max (1979) & Zombie Flesh Eaters" (1980).

For more extensive biographical detail about Tom Beauvais, please refer to the excellent book "British Film Posters" (2006) by Sim Branaghan & the insightful Eddie Shannon interview with Tom: https://www.filmonpaper.com/blog/an-interview-with-tom-beauvais/

This is a rare Quad poster (only the second we've seen in 30+ years of collecting/dealing). "Shalimar" was an important film being a very early example (if not the first) of a Hollywood-Bollywood co-production. "Shalimar" was filmed in India and released both in Hindi and English. Hollywood veteran Rex Harrison and Bollywood stars Dharmendra and Zeenat Aman starred in the crime caper. Beauvais presents a bold image of Rex Harrison against a background of colourful action.

Poster unfolded with various edge tears (one 7" neat tear to upper right reapaired with sellotape) & paper loss to upper right rim. There is general creasing, corner damage, old tape marks to the reverse etc. Poster not in great condition but this is a genuinely rare poster, it still displays well & is an important Indian cinema artefact. Although the poster carries the printed signature of the artist, a separate letter of authenticity signed by the artist will also be supplied with this item.
