About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for BLACK NARCISSUS (1947) by Powell, Michael; Pressburger, Emeric (director).


Vintage original 22 x 28" (56 x 72 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Deborah Kerr, Flora Robson, Jean Simmons, David Farrar, Sabu, dir: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger; Universal. Spectacular Technicolor film which is a psychological study of Anglican nuns who attempt to establish a religious community in the Himalayas. The locations were done in England and Ireland, but all of the Himalayan scenes were shot at the studio in London using glass shots and miniatures. Black-and-white location shots were used, blown up and color chalk applied to them for use in Technicolor. There were two Academy Awards for the color work. One of the loveliest posters ever for this classic film, with its dramatic artwork of all the film's major characters. Poster has had skillful conservation (without being backed) to blank borders, and it is now in totally lovely condition, ready to be displayed, NEAR FINE. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description The Archers, London, 1947. Complete set of 8 UK color front-of-house cards from the first-run screening of the 1947 film. Each with the contemporary rubber stamp of Girosign, Ltd., on the verso. Front-of-house cards served the same purpose in the UK as lobby cards in the US, but were generally only produced for films shot in color. A very popular format, used in the UK starting in the 1920s and running well into the 1980s. They are distinctive in that their color separation is much finer and the colors more vibrant than what is found in US lobby cards from the same period, and they are produced on a thinner stock.A stone classic from the Powell-Pressburger canon, based on the 1939 novel by Rumer Godden. A visually stunning melodrama, one of the great duo's masterpieces, about the spirtual and melodramatic goings-on at a convent in the Himalayas. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine.
