    RYAN’S DAUGHTER AT WHYTE’S ECLECTIC COLLECTOR SALE

    Saturday, April 28th, 2018

    This poster for Ryan’s Daughter is at Whyte’s Eclectic Collector sale in Dublin on May 5.  Shot on location in Kerry the 1970 film starring Robert Mitchum and Trevor Howard won two Oscars (Best Supporting Actor and Cinematography).

    Directed by David Lean and set in 1917/18  the epic romantic drama tells the story of an affair between a  married Irish woman and a British Army officer during World War 1.  This troubled romance occurred in the wake of the 1916 Rising against a background of moral and political opposition. It was panned by the critics and a box office success.

    The unrestored British quad poster displays signs of use and is estimated at 150-200.  The sale includes historical documents and artefacts,  sporting, film and rock and pop memorabilia, medals, banknotes and collectibles. It will be on view from next Wednesday.

    UPDATE; THIS MADE 700 AT HAMMER
