Gwendolyn Watts as Rita in “Billy Liar”

As the feisty & forthright blonde lass who worked in the Wimpy bar, Gwendolyn Watts made an impact in “Billy Liar”. Brassy Rita seemed to represent the beehived girls of 1950s milk bars who came before the free-spirits like Liz, portrayed by Julie Christie, in the 1960s.

Other film credits include “Sons & Lovers” with Trevor Howard & Mary Ure; “The System” with Harry Andrews & David Hemmings; “My Fair Lady” with Audrey Hepburn, Stanley Holloway & Mona Washbourne; “Fanatic” with Yootha Joyce; “You Must Be Joking!” with Terry-Thomas, Irene Handl & Bernard Cribbins; “The Wrong Box” with Michael Caine, Peter Sellers, Tony Hancock & Leonard Rossiter; “All Neat in Black Stockings” with Susan George; “The Games” with Stanley Baker; plus the Carry On films “Carry On Doctor”, “Carry On Again Doctor” and “Carry On Matron”.

TV credits include “The Avengers“, “Steptoe & Son“, “Redcap” with John Thaw; “The Benny Hill Show”, “The Ronnie Barker Playhouse”, “Coronation Street“, and “On the Buses“.

Art & Hue presents Billy Liar stylish pop art prints

Considered one of the most significant and revolutionary films in British cinema, subverting the social realist and kitchen sink genres with its use of fantasy sequences and documentary-style location shooting, “Billy Liar” reflected the changing cultural and social landscape of Britain in the early 1960s and its influence can still be seen in contemporary cinema and television today.

Exclusively by Art & Hue, the “Billy Liar” collection is available in three sizes & many colours, printed on museum-quality archival card of 310gsm, made from 100% ethically-sourced cotton, with fine-art pigment inks for longevity.

An official collaboration with Studiocanal to mark 60 years of the film’s innovative storytelling and groundbreaking portrayal of Northern working class characters in 1960s Britain, Art & Hue has delved into the archives to uncover images from the iconic film “Billy Liar” which have been transformed into stylish pop art prints, 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).

Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
