     Further to my previous comments on San Ferry Ann, the ''Bedlam on the Riviera!'' tagline from the daybill is incorrect.. The travelling families go from Dover to Calais and are throughout the film on the other side of the country from the French riviera.

    Update. Although The Fast Lady starred  James Robertson Justice, Leslie Phillips and Stanley Baxter and with the couple embracing and the vintage car images it looked  likely that this was where the image on San Ferry Ann was sourced from. I contacted Matt at eMovieposter.co. who are currently auctioning the poste, letting him know what I knew.
    Matt had kindly just gotten back to me informing me he has been told by a collector that another James Robertson Justice, Leslie Phillips and Stanley Baxter film titled Father Came Too film is where the image originated from. The San Ferry Ann daybill pictured above is the unsighted, to the best of my knowledge, original Robert Burton daybill of Father Came Too that was overprinted with credits, but leaving  the same unrelated design as the British one sheet pictured above. An incorrect tagline regarding the Riviera, mentioned previously as well. Now we have the answer to what took place so the problem now solved.
