Pop art print inspired by the 1947 British crime thriller starring Richard Attenborough.
In “Brighton Rock”, Richard Attenborough’s breakthrough film role casts him as gang leader Pinkie Brown.
Involving an innocent waitress in his scheme to cover up the murder of a journalist in the Sussex town, the film’s dramatic ending plays out on Brighton’s Palace Pier.
A Boulting Brothers production, with a screenplay by Graham Greene & Terence Rattigan, “Brighton Rock” was a hit at the cinema, despite newspapers criticising the depiction of violence. First screened to the trade & cinema distributors on the 25th of November 1947, the film held the World Premiere in Brighton on the 8th of January 1948, followed by a Gala Premiere at the Leicester Square Warner Cinema London on the 9th of January 1948.
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.
