FEATURE: From Stage to Screen – Pop Art inspired by Film Adaptations of Stage Plays.
All prints in the From Stage to Screen collection are available in three sizes and a wide choice of colour options, including a new combination of vibrant orange & purple inspired by posters from the 1968 production of The Anniversary starring Bette Davis.
The theatrical collection includes a re-imagined poster for the first all-British talking picture with sound released in 1929, BlackMail directed by Alfred Hitchcock, as well as Joe Orton’s Entertaining Mr Sloane with Beryl Reid, Peter McEnery & Harry Andrews.
Screen doyenne Bette Davis in The Anniversary gets the Art & Hue treatment as does the cult B-movie sci-fi production of Devil Girl From Mars with Patricia Laffan.
The Edinburgh-set musical Let’s Be Happy is pure Strictly-come-dancing ballroom glamour, with Tony Martin in his white tuxedo and Vera-Ellen as a high-kicking showgirl.
Completing the collection, ukulele king George Formby features in an illustrated reworking of “Turned Out Nice Again” and Barbara Windsor takes centre-stage as the prominent star of Joan Littlewood’s Theatre Workshop production of “Sparrows Can’t Sing”.
A stylish way to bring the theatre into the home, the collection features Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books).
