Tales of Beatrix Potter

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1971. Original British quad poster for the 1971 film.

Based on Potter's many "Tales of..." books for children. With music by John Lanchbery and the Royal Opera House orchestra, Frederick Ashton choreographed members of the Royal Ballet, who performed in animal costumes.

The BBC produced an adaptation in 1982, more as a biography of Potter than a rendition of her stories, and Chris Noon's "Miss Potter" (2006) focuses largely on Potter the author, played by Renee Zellweger.

30 x 40 inches, folded as issued. Very Good, with cello tape and bruises at the corners and edges, a few central pinholes, light foxing, and notation in holograph ink on the verso.
