Original 1950 movie poster The Blue Lamp with Dirk Bogarde£240.00
Basil Dearden‘s The Blue Lamp was an extended tribute to the Metropolitan Police, stretched in their fight against the post-war crime wave, the film is notable for its introduction of the character Police Constable Dixon (Jack Warner, with Gladys Henson as his long-serving wife). Murdered halfway through by a gunman, he was reincarnated and paraded in the BBC television series Dixon of Dock Green which ran on and on into the mid Seventies, and presumably would have gone on running had not Dixon, latterly a station sergeant, become anachronistically aged, since Jack Warner at the close was eighty-two.
