PLEASE NOTE that I am not a dealer per se, I’m just a guy who is selling off a portion of what has become too large of an accumulation of vintage movie posters. I reserve the right to refuse to sell to wankers; that said though, as a collector I will treat you the way I’d like to be treated, because I want these to go to happy homes where they will be appreciated. Condition freaks should ask for detailed descriptions before purchasing, as I am less disturbed by the history accumulated by these pieces of paper than I used to be, and that might be reflected in the written descriptions. Be sure to check every page!
|ACID, DELIRIO DEI SENSI - (1968) Original Italian release. Set of 8.
One of the most coveted of the LSD related titles, these large photobustas are a great piece to add to your collection. The visual movement in the design is an effective mirror of the dosed characters as they struggle in their "trip" through acidland.
|ANNEE DERNIERE A MARIENBAD, L' (aka LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD) - (1961) French original, 46 1/4x63".
Very important Alain Resnais, nouvelle vague film, and almost impossible to find. Beautiful artwork by L. Brini. Linen backed.
|ASSASSIN OF YOUTH - (1937) Original release, 11x17" pressbook.
One of the rarest, and certainly most difficult of the reefer madness films to get any material on. This is particularly surprising since the pressbook shows that there were two completely different poster ad campaigns available, one in a traditional style, and one in a much more lurid "roadshow" design.
The pressbook is complete, and in excellent condition.
|BEAUTY AND THE BODY (aka CALIFORNIEN STORY) (c. 1963) - OK, it doesn't get much better than this. One of the great surfing posters of
the early 1960s, it features a ho-dad on his long board being tubed by an awesome wave, all the while being watched by two naked California beach
bunnies. If this poster can't chase
away the winter blues, nothing can.
Apparently Austrian, although it could certainly have been used in Germany as well.
|BIG PARTY, THE (1930) - A wonderful Jazz Age lobby card for this lost film about a nice girl who naively becomes a kept woman, not realizing that there will be some off-the-book ‘services’ to be rendered as repayment for her fancy new apartment.
This scene card features the lovely Sue Carol, who had a brief career as a leading lady but was to gain a much higher profile around town after becoming a talent agent and, more importantly, wife and mother of the children of superstar Allan Ladd.
|BUSINESSMEN (aka DELOVYE IYUDI) - (c. 1963) Original english language release, 32 ¾ x 46 ½" USSR Sovexportfilm.
Fabulous colors with a striking image of running-dog pigs ready to exploit the workers. Actually that's not even close. The film is a comedic re-telling of three of capitalist stooge O. Henry's short stories. In fact, the "Ransom of Red Chief" segment even made it onto the beloved '60s program, "The CBS Children's Film Festival" hosted by the most honest film presenters ever, Kukla, Fran, and Ollie.
Classic inept propaganda. Dated in the image. Rolled, edge tears, invisible water stain.
|CHAINED FOR LIFE (c. 1951) - Hot off the success of their appearance in Tod Browning's "Freaks" (OK, so it was 20 years later...They were
busy!), notorious Siamese (or conjoined if you prefer) twins, the Hilton sisters star in this exploitation masterpiece. Pondering the ethical questions
involved in punishing Siamese (or conjoined if you prefer) twins, when only one of them is guilty of murdering HER no-account husband. Worthy of
Original Belgian release (14 1/2x21 3/4"), with tax stamp.
|CHINESE ROOM, THE (1968) - The titular "chinese room" refers to a room that is used for intoxicating oneself, apparently unaware of
the racist nature of the phrase. That aside, this original release 9 1/2x10 3/4" Mexican card is one of the rare examples in film history showing the use of
so-called "magic" mushrooms. It's appropriate, that this was filmed in Mexico, albeit in english by Sr. Albert Zugsmith (of "High School Confidential"
fame), since Mexico is the Mecca of 'shroomdom.
Elizabeth Campbell is one of the interesting footnotes in film history, being an American born actress who had quite a career in Mexican wrestling films. Campbell is about to visit elf-land in this intriguing scene.
|CONFESSIONS OF A VICE BARON (1942) - More from sleazemeister Willis Kent, in what is essentially a compilation of other Willis Kent productions
spliced into a new "story." This was a favorite tactic of the roadshow men, whether it was hacking early ethnographic films into jungle adventures, or
re-purposing silents into dubbed sound masterpieces, anything that would run through a projector was fair game.
Fantastic poster that baits the trap with sex slaves and seals the deal with easy money, light 2 1/2" separation in the upper left horizontal fold.
|DEALING: OR THE BERKELEY TO BOSTON FORTY BRICK LOST BAG BLUES - (1972) 1 Sheet Original US advance release.
Superb cannabis art showing the demon weed in all its glory. This advance style is far better than the general release one sheets. Why there are dorm rooms without this poster is beyond me.
|DIARY OF OHARU (aka SAIKAKU ICHIDAI ONNA) (c. 1952) - Original Italian release locandina.
Director Kenji Mizoguchi is one of the founding fathers of Japanese cinema, and one of the first to be recognized in the west for his astonishing abilities. The "Life (or Diary) of Oharu" was Mizoguchi's dream project, filmed at great personal expense, but is one of his true masterpieces, which along with "Ugetsu" the following year, put him at the center of the world soundstage.
Period Mizoguchi Kenji posters are always desirable, and difficult to come by.
|DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN - (1972) Original US release, 27x41" one sheet.
While not in the same league as the classic "Abominable Dr. Phibes" one sheet, this poster for the sequel has a very surreal "Chien Andalou" sort of feeling. A terrific example of '70s horror. Folded.
|DREIMAL HOCHZEIT (aka GACKANDE BRUDEN, aka THRICE MARRIED BRIDE) (1942) - A supremely rare example of harlotry from the middle of the
war years of the Nazzy reich, this is about as wild as things would have gotten outside of a Goebbels love nest. No doubt less about sleeping around
than comical misadventures of a poor bride who finds herself married 3 times; as the bombs were beginning to fall on Germany, this would certainly have
been mindless entertainment for a country that was getting ready to be pulverized. By this time, UFA was a fully government controlled production entity,
and could be counted on to toe the party line.
It goes without saying that examples of German World War II combat era films are pretty darn rare. The fact that this is from the film's Swedish release is likely the only reason it survives. Rolled, with slight horizontal folds, 27 1/2x39 1/2".
|DRIBBLE (1979) - I imagine NIKE is real proud to have it's logo on this poster. Sometimes those product placement contracts will
come back and bite you.
The film is apparently about women's professional basketball, so while that might explain the NIKE ad, it doesn't explain the field full of reefer or dude smoking the marihuana cigarette (or "joint," as they were known by the kids). Original US one sheet.
|ET DIEU CREA LA FEMME (aka AND GOD CREATED WOMAN) - (R1964) Original re-release French grande, 46 1/4x62 1/2".
Absolutely magnifique Brigitte Bardot in the Roger Vadim classic. Luscious Rene Peron artwork that is surely one of his most inspired creations. Linen backed, displays beautifully.
|EVERYTHING FOR SALE (aka WSZYSTKO NA SPRZEDAZ) (1969) - Original country of origin Polish release.
Andrzej Wajda is arguably Poland's best director, certainly one of the most recognized. Made at the height of flower power in the west, "Everything For Sale" incorporates much of the energy of the era with traditional Wajda flourishes. As usual, the Polish art is fantastic.
