Frankie Howerd British comedian who starred in the TV show 'Up Pompei' in the 70's
Amalgamated Movies presents Blow-Up Pompeii. A movie poster spoof which imagines what if the 1966 Palme d’Or winning film “Blow-Up” directed by Michelangelo Antonioni and starring David Hemmings and Vanessa Redgrave, collided with the 1971 British TV comedy spin-off film “Up-Pompeii” directed by Bob Kellett and starring Frankie Howerd and Michael Hordern. The credits reveal a nihilistic swinging London riddled with innuendos. Also available as an A4 or A3 print.
