Delving into Studiocanal’s archives at Pinewood Studios, where the Carry On series was filmed, Art & Hue has created six pop art portraits of the much-loved stars, all available in three sizes & 16 colours for you to choose from to fit into the design scheme of your home. Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims, and Barbara Windsor (Dame Babs) have all been given Art & Hue’s signature treatment to transform the film’s stars into pop art icons.
Art & Hue had the pleasure of delving into the archives of Studiocanal at Pinewood Studios to uncover the original posters and photographs of the Carry On series, which have been given the stylish pop art treatment featuring 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).
Passport to Pimlico
“Passport to Pimlico” was one of the most popular films of 1949 and, along with “Whisky Galore”, “A Run For Your Money”, and “Kind Hearts & Coronets” all released in the same year within the space of seven months, firmly established the Ealing Comedies.
Also starring Stanley Holloway, Barbara Murray, Charles Hawtrey, Naunton Wayne, & Basil Radford, “Passport to Pimlico” opened at both the Gaumont and Pavilion cinemas in London on the 28th of April 1949.
