20th March, 2020
In line with Government guidance, and to be sure we are playing our part in helping prevent the spread of this disease, we are temporarily closing our London Gallery with effect from close of business on Saturday, 21st March. As the situation changes on a daily basis at the moment, we will update our website as things develop.
However this doesn’t mean we are closed for business: You can still make online purchases as our website remains fully operational and will continue to be updated with News and new stock in the usual way. Just contact us via the usual links on our website. Our current aim is to continue to ship twice weekly (domestic shipping during this period will be free of charge).
We are also hoping to be able to make available a limited number of appointments, for any of you who wish to see any of the pieces before finalising your choice, but this may well change as the situation evolves, and to keep us all safe we would urge you to use the website instead - we’re here to answer any questions you may have on specific pieces before buying.
And of course you can still contact us with any requests or enquiries either:
By Telephone +44 (0)20 7751 5584
If you get the answering machine please do leave us a message and we will get back to you within 24 hours
By Email – email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your continued support. We wish you all well during these difficult and challenging times and look forward to seeing you all again in person once our Gallery re-opens.

It's three years since he reached his Centenary, but we are still sad to learn that Kirk Douglas has passed away. He was Oscar nominated three times but never won except for a Lifetime Achievement award, despite starring in some of Hollywood's biggest movies of the Fifties and Sixties. He was memorably Spartacus, Doc Holliday and Van Gogh, as well as being one of the forerunners of the "star as producer" syndrome, which changed the face of Hollywood as an industry. For those of you who know the name but have never really watched him, we suggest that you start with The Bad and the Beautiful, Ace in the Hole, or Out of the Past (where you will also see Robert Mitchum in top form).

The nominations are out. Somehow, they seem a little same-y this year. But that's just our view!
Maybe it's because we found The Irishman long, not very interesting, and mediocre Scorsese. And Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - it was good, but not that good...……….. (except for Brad Pitt, who surely is going to win).
While we wait, have a look at some of the pieces we have in stock from movies which have won Oscars over the years.

The reviews are in and looking good. As film fans prepare to take in the latest transformation and moving performance from Renee Zellweger, many will also be renewing their acquaintance with the original performances of Judy Garland. And others will be seeing them for the first time. From the Wizard of Oz to I Could Go on Singing with many more in between, there are lots of treats to be had. And for poster collectors, we have a great selection of original posters and lobby cards featuring Judy, some of which you can see here.
