Art & Hue presents The Ladykillers, stylish pop art inspired by the classic Ealing comedy.
When Alec Guinness and his crew turn up at the house of Mrs Wilberforce to rent rooms, she’s unaware that the crew are planning a heist.
Masquerading as an amateur string quintet looking to rehearse, Mrs W. soon cottons on to the gang’s crime and threatens to report them to the police, at which point it’s decided one of them must become a lady killer to keep her quiet.
With an all-star cast of classic British actors including Alec Guinness, Cecil Parker, Herbert Lom, Peter Sellers, Danny Green, and the archetypal policeman Jack Warner, “The Ladykillers” is fondly considered to be one of the best Ealing comedies.
Directed by Alexander Mackendrick, who also directed the Ealing comedies “Whisky Galore!” and “The Man in the White Suit“, the wealth of acting talent in “The Ladykillers” warranted its own pop art collection by Art & Hue alongside other Ealing Comedies.
The writer William Rose also won a Bafta Award for “The Ladykillers”, for Best British Screenplay, as well as a nomination for an Academy Award.
An official collaboration with Studiocanal, Art & Hue had the pleasure to delve into the archives of the classic Ealing Comedies to create these stylish pop art prints, all available in 3 sizes & 20 colours.
Exclusively by Art & Hue, all pop art is printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% cotton, with fine-art pigment inks for longevity.
2020 marks 65 years since the film premiered on the 8th December 1955 at the Odeon Leicester Square
UPDATE: STUDIOCANAL have restored the classic film for a new 4k UHD Collector’s Edition plus standard Blu-ray & DVD.
