It is extremely rare to find British posters this size as they were produced to export to Commonwealth countries. This poster is credited on the bottom border "produced by S.P. Eagle". During the McCarthy era, thousands of Americans were accused of being communists or communist sympathizers and became the subject of aggressive investigations and questioning. As Sam Speagle was on McCathy's 'black list' he could not use his real name, and therefore used this pseudonym.
