More about this item:

Carry On Cleo (1964) front page of The Daily Cinema magazine showing Chantrell's banned poster design for the film.

Chantrell's parody of the marketing campaign for "Cleopatra" (1963) resulted in legal action with Chantrell giving evidence in Court. Chantrell argued that his artwork simply spoofed "Cleopatra" just as the Carry On film itself did but the judge felt differently & all such advertising materials carrying Chantrell's infamous design were ordered to be destroyed. A piece of cinematic history & something which will frame beautifully too.

NB. this is the front page only of the magazine.
