TITLE: LATIN QUARTER
FORMAT: 20 x 12.5 inches
VENUE: LONDON CASINO, London.
PRODUCTION CREDITS: Frances Day, Jack Durant, Christian Selva, Les Charlivels, Elsa and Waldo.
NOTES: The Latin Quarter was a review show by Robert Nesbitt featuring a mixture of song, dance and nude reviews similar to the Windmill's. It ran for three years at the Casino from 1949 to 1951, with a different production for each year. The Casino was opened after the war by Emile Littler and was converted into a cinema in 1954. It eventually became The Prince Edward Theatre. These review shows were very popular and single-handedly were responsible for keeping the theatre open during the post-war years. This POSTER was produced for a cast variation with Christian Selva appearing instead of Georges Guetary. We are not sure which of these cast variations is the earliest but both were from 1949.
PROVENANCE: The Emile Littler/Patrick Selby collection.
CONDITION: Grade A. Single horizontal fold. Slight edge creasing, else near Fine.
