These lobby cards (see below) were tracked down in the US and are the only ones that I have come across for Live Now Pay Later (1962) – Ian’s first film in which he starred in the lead role.
Live Now Pay Later is comedy-drama by director Jay Lewis based on the novel and script by Jack Trevor Story, about an unscrupulous salesman, Albert Argyle (Ian Hendry), who is beset by a whole series of problems, all of his own making. In order to advance his career, Albert makes a habit of seducing his female customers to better convince them to buy beyond their means, on credit.
June Ritchie, with whom Ian would work with again two years later in This Is My Street (1964) and John Gregson co-starred.
At present the film is not available as a commercial release but it is available online from a number of sources that have produced DVD’s of moderate quality from video recordings.
