ATTACK, 1956

Original U.S. 1-sheet poster 27"x41".

thumbnail link to original 1956 The Man Who Knew Too Much insert poster

THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, 1956

Original U.S. Insert poster 14"x36".

Hitch's succesful re-make (with James Stewart as co-production partner) of his own 1934 film of the same name. Hitch: "Let's say that the first version was the work of a talented amateur and the second was made by a professional."

Few songs written for a film became such a standard as Jay Livingstone and Ray Evans' 'Que Sera, Sera', which won the Oscar for Best Music, Original Song.

£485.00 linen backed and conservation framed.


thumbnail link to original 1959 The Mummy Hammer US insert poster

THE MUMMY, 1959

Original U.S. Insert poster 14"x36".

After the worldwide smash hit of 'Dracula', the film's U.S. distributor Universal agreed remake rights with Hammer for any of Universal's original horror titles. Hammer's run-ins with the British censor - and the impact the films made on U.S. audiences - were heightened by their spectacular Technicolor. 'The Mummy' amalgamated plot lines from three of Universal's Mummy series.

£795.00 conservation framed.

THE WILD BUNCH, 1969

Original U.S. 27"x41" 1 sheet poster.
Design and photography by Bill Gold.

Original American poster for Peckinpah's pivotal western, the culmination of the growing darker tone of the Hollywood western noticable from the 50s on. Casting an elegiac look back to classic tradition and ahead to the murkier morality of the 70's, the film is a masterpiece. Bill Gold photographed the actors in the Warner Brothers parking lot, walking into the sun to create the silhouettes and long shadows. V. Good condition.

Please inquire. Linen backed.
