More about this item:

UK Quad poster (30"x 40") for "What's Up Superdoc" (1978).

"What's Up Superdoc", was the 1978 sequel to 1977's "What's Up Nurse". Both films were of mediocre value, being standard British sex-comedy films of the era. This meant that apart from an array of attractive girls who were happy to shed their kit, various well-known names from the world of British conmedy took part. In "...Superdoc", the likes of Harry H Corbett, Bill Pertwee, Hughie Green, Melvyn Hayes all participated. Mary Millington also had a small cameo role in the film. Such was the state of the British film industry of the time that many established actors were happy to appear in such films as little else was available. It is easy to be snooty about such fare but it is important to remember that these films made money when many "mainstream" British films failed at the box-office. At a time when the British populace was shielded from hardcore porn, these vehicles of titillation proved very popular.

Poster folded with light foldline wear, 1" tear to upper rim & several amateur repairs to reverse of crossfolds. Not a great film but an excellent example of Chantrell's ability to create a design that did the job of luring the punters in!
