CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY (1944) $300.00 SOLD
Vintage original 22 x 28" (55 x 71 cm.) half sheet poster, USA. Deanna Durbin, Gene Kelly, dir:Robert Siodmak; Universal. Set in New Orleans, adapted from a novel by W. Somerset Maugham, and starring two actors (Durbin, Kelly), both of them much more clearly linked to lighter films in most of their careers, this film has gradually come to be realized as one of director Siodmak's most idiosyncratic noir masterpieces, with its intimations of perverse sexuality, and its fatalistic story, most of it told in flashback.

This follow up to ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK shared many of the same talents and even the same sets, but this time the effect of rock & roll music on American youth was examined as the main dramatic plot. Parents were concerned in 1956 that this new kind of music was going to corrupt their kids. Small town-born Arnie Haines (Alan Dale) visits home after becoming a...

Academy Award-nominated classic for which Hitchcock beautifully blended suspense, action and comedy. There was also a bold political statement, made just as the entire world went to war, that neutrality will not work when others are bent on war. This film, along with Rebecca (which would win many of the Oscars that year) made a huge impression on America during Hitchcock's first year of Hollywood film making. Gary Cooper and...

The most famous movie team of Holmes and Watson were Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, and this, was their first.

Montgomery directed and starred in this fine adaptation of the Raymond Chandler novel. It is perhaps the one film which truly captures the original spirit of a Chandler book. Montgomery was able to direct and act by ingeniously having his character be off camera much of the time, appearing to the audience by reflection in mirrors and by characters' reactions to him, thus giving Audrey Totter (in a performance as one...
MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, THE (1960) $450.00 SOLD
Vintage original 22 x 28" (56 x 91 cm.) half sheet style B poster, USA. Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, dir: John Sturges; United Artists. For this classic American remake of Kurosawa's THE SEVEN SAMURAI (which is now a classic in its own right), the distributor created this unusual poster, with its stylized artwork on the left centering on the number "7" -- artwork which was not used in the same form on any other of the various American posters. Folded, with various small staple holes, and minor creasing, VERY GOOD.
