NOTES:  Emile Littler originally produced this revival of the Quaker Girl in 1944 but was forced to close due to the London Blitz. Consequently, he took the show on tour of England and Scotland continuously from the summer of 1945, until December 1948, being received everywhere with great enthusiasm. Littler fell out with Jesse Matthews after casting her in the 1944 production, from which she walked out 10 days before opening.  He put out press notices claiming this was due to ill health and she countered with criticism of his management.  Littler was the most powerful impresario of the time and his angry retort "She'll never work in the West End again" was only too accurate. An attractive and decorative POSTER. Stone litho printed by Eden Press, Birmingham.

 

PROVENANCE: The Emile Littler/Patrick Selby collection.

 

CONDITION: Grade A. Folded.  VG.
