The Viking Queen Poster

An ABC UK Quad poster for Hammer's "The Viking Queen" (1966), twinned here with "The Corrupt" (1963).

The ABC cinema chain had a curious approach to poster advertising. In some cases they would simply use the general release designs with an added ABC tagline. In other cases their in-house art department headed by Ted Verrum would come up with a completely different design. In the third case (as here), Ted Verrum et al would just "tweak" the existing general release design (the more eagle-eyed of you will notice subtle differences between Chantrell's printed general release Quad & this ABC variant). For further interest you can also view a second painted artwork that Chantrell created for this film: https://www.chantrellposter.com/Viking-Queen-Chantrell-Quad-Poster-Hammer-Artwork-1967-Original/1239

Poster printed on heavier paper stock, once lightly folded but since rolled (& will be sent in a tube) with several small edge nicks & one 1 1/2" conservation tape repair to tear on upper left rim. Overall in very good condition & a scarce piece of Hammer & "Chantrell" memorabilia.
