The Hill (1965) – Australian Day Bill Poster

The Hill (1965)Australian Day Bill Poster

The Hill is a classic military prison film directed by Sidney Lumet. It features Sean Connery (as Roberts) who was, of course flying high at that time playing James Bond. But with an all male cast it received unfair criticism at the time, purely because it lacked female ‘interest’.

In what now seems like quite a humorous move, a scantily clad female dancer appears on the day-bill next to Sean in the Australian release of the film,. Whilst she does not actually appear in this military prison romp….it does seem that she did play her part by being ‘parachuted’ into the poster by the marketing department!
