More about this item:

Arguably another case where the best thing about a Film was the Poster created to promote it ! However, this Galton & Simpson crafted story about a casanova of the canals, boasted a great British cast & some fascinating footage of life on the narrowboats. By the time that "The Bargee" was made, Harry H Corbett & Galton & Simpson were already enjoying great success with the TV series "Steptoe & Son", the first 4 series running from 1962-65. Other Comedy "greats" involved in this Film included Ronnie Barker, Eric Sykes, Hugh Griffiths, Derek Nimmo, Richard Briers etc. Chantrell's artwork is once again an all-enveloping example. Corbett's "cheeky-chappy" persona is perfectly captured here. This particular Poster is a Chantrell "proof" with one vertical foldline only. It would be hard to find another copy of this scarce Chantrell Poster in better condition.
