The beautiful woman in this poster is Fay Compton who played in "Dick Whittington and his cat," in 1932. "Pantomimes are traditionally performed over the Christmas period and along with song and dance, the style incorporates slapstick comedy, cross-dressing (with men playing pantomime dames and principle boys played by women), and a fair amount of mild sexual innuendoes, traditionally a staple of British humor." - Tony Seddon (online).
