    In Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960) Rachel Roberts passes a poster for The Bramble Bush (1960), although I can't find this exact poster depicted anywhere. There also seems to be one for British Mystery Week? That's what it looks like anyway.

      I normally make a note of the website in any category that i'm on if by chance there's a film poster in the background-usually at traffic lights as I'm a transport enthusiast. Bramble Bush sticks in my memory but its not on Getty or Daily Mirror-damn. Think it might be on one of the Richard Burton tribute sites, displayed in a village setting next to a country bus stop (or similar)

        Thanks, Tim. There is a bit more to do with The Human Jungle - Struggle for a Mind but we're on the right track with Warner. Posters for West 11, Dr. Crippen and an ad for Days of Wine and Roses can all be seen in a later shot, which I'll post soon.

        "British Pottery Week" actually. On the right is the photo used for The Bramble Bush poster:



        Featuring Richard Burton and Angie Dickinson, who apparently had an affair during filming (lucky him).

          The venue in the Saturday Night/Sunday Morning grab is almost certainly the ABC Elite in Nottingham (the city centre branch)

            Of course, although it sounds slightly duller than British Mystery Week? Personally I'm waiting for British Optician's Week so I can get my eyes tested.

              Cinema display in 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning'

              More posters appear in the scene where Albert Finney and Shirley Anne Field are leaving a cinema.
              I've identified all but one of them. The top two are Mardi Gras (1958) and Stopover Tokyo (1957):





              Pat Boone is in the former and also stars in.Journey to the Centre of the Earth (middle left
              and bottom right). Beside the lower copy is a poster for another 1959 film, Beloved Infidel:


              Found the main photo anyway. There are similarities between the UK Quad for Journey and the illustration above, but the figures are placed differently. James Mason is third left on the poster, just behind Arlene Dahl. In the cropped screencap he's next to the taller figure of Peter Ronson, whose image has been reversed.

              All four (identified) films were shown at the Carlton Cinema between December 1957 (Stopover Tokyo) and January 1960 (Journey to the Centre of the Earth). Unfortunately, I can't prove that the fourth poster was a Carlton release, having failed with my UK poster and cinema listings searches for that period. The half-missing title looks like "The Way ...". Or could it be The Best of Everything, which was shown there in 1959?

                Hello Cornershop - I looked at the studio information for all of the films that you have identified, and they were all released by 20th Century Fox; The Best of Everything was as well. It opened in Britain, in November, 1959. This a UK poster I found for the film. http://frontrowposters.co.uk/prod_im...EVERYTHING.jpg

                It doesn't quite match the graphic in the poster - quite difficult to see anyway - but I know there were many variations, so it is possible.

                  Just noticed I didn't get back to you, Tim. Thanks for trying. I won't give up. There's still enough detail in that blurry image to recognise tthe poster if we do come across it somewhere.

                The cinema was apparently The Savoy on Derby Road, Nottingham. I've been to that cinema several times during the 90s. It was an independent, mainstream cinema and had a great atmosphere.

                    Sad news recently with the death of Undermind star Jeremy Wilkin, who features in the first post. R.I.P.


                    Warren Berlinger, left, and Walter Maslow in the Johnny Staccato episode An Angry Young Man (1960):



                    The patrolman has a difficult time with the juvenile delinquent:




                    Behind Warren are posters for Yes Sir, That's My Baby and Johnny Stool Pigeon (both 1949):

                      Watching the brilliant Otley for the first time (what a joy) I noticed a number of film posters on the walls Leonard Rossiter and Tom Courtenay passed as they walked through the underground station ...

                            Have an original copy of Charge of the Light Brigade. Was a little worse for wear after my local cinema's presentation of it, but the bronze background does have a luxury feel to it.

                              There was a discussion where the film cropped up a while back. I found the film a bit tiresome personally, but the poster was very striking. If I could get one as part of a bundle, then might be worth adding to the collection.
