Queen Photograph in episode of 'Man About the House'

Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

Queen Photograph in episode of 'Man About the House'

Postby Basser » Tue Jul 18, 2017 6:43 pm

I happened to be watching the end of an episode of 'Man About the House' when much to my surprise, a large poster/photo of Queen appeared on the back wall. I've seen the photo before - I think it's from the Rainbow shows. I'm curious to know if it was sold as official merchandise back in 1975, when the episode originally aired. Thanks!

You can see it here, at the 10:55 minute mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3drp-CuCMRw

nice spot.

There is an episode of detective drama Target somewhere (with Patrick Mower) from way back where they come out of the pub and TYMD is on the jukebox.

Well spotted. My parents used to watch this show, so I kind of recall it.

I got so caught up in watching and noting the much improved humor (humour) over the States version of that, called "3
s Company", that I forgot to keep an eye out for the poster and had to replay, but then realized I hadn't watched to the 10 something minute mark so fast forwarded to find it.

Cool that they have it there.

Tell me, l since most of what I found so much funnier is probably due to the use of British terminology, I have to wonder if Brits find the American version funny for the same reasons, or does it seem just as lame as it does to us?
.It is my uppermost hope that even histories' genius's lost their minds as they aged. I'd hate to think that I really am an idiot. sjm

This is probably as good as it gets.

There was one particular photographer who used to advertise in the Record Mirror/NME/Melody Maker etc, you could buy these big posters from him, he did all the well know rock bands in the 1970s.

Well spotted! That poster was rather nice too! :-)

A similar photo, but not exactly the same, is found inside the cover of the Live At The Rainbow 1974 blu-ray. It is featured all over the reverse side of the outer sleeve. (I just checked).



It looks like this when unfolded:

Spoiler! :


So if you have the blu-ray, you also have this mini-poster to be put in a frame maybe ?
