More about this item:

A copy of the Daily Express newspaper article concerning the "Carry On Cleo" court case (21st January 1965). Chantrell parodied the contemporary poster design for "Cleopatra" ("Carry On Cleo" itself was a spoof of "Cleopatra" anyway) but legal action ensued. Chantrell's witty design had to be removed & a hastily designed alternative was rushed to press (images of these posters courtesy of www.moviepostermem.com)
