CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958)
CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (1958) $1,400.00

Vintage original 30 x 40" (75 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives, Judith Anderson, Madeleine Sherwood, dir: Richard Brooks; MGM.

The highly adult filming of Tennessee Williams' work was paramount in the loosening of the strict censorship code in film making, as were all films of Williams' work during this period. It was an actor's film, with each star perfectly cast to their role. If there were any question of it, Elizabeth Taylor was now grown up and a fine actress in her mature roles. It is difficult to think of anyone else as Maggie...

The mine suddenly is turning a huge profit and its owner needs what may be criminal activity investigated.

Nearing the end of the Charlie Chan film series, this is number 45 of the 47. After Sidney Toler's death in 1946, Monogram decided to continue the series, though it was far-less distinguished. Interesting for the time is that, though...

CHARLIE MCCARTHY DETECTIVE (1939)
CHARLIE MCCARTHY DETECTIVE (1939) $1,500.00

Vintage original 27 x 41 (68 x 105 cm.) one sheet poster, style B, U.S. Edgar Bergen, Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd, Robert Cummings, Constance Moore, dir: Frank Tuttle; Universal. Edgar Bergin, along with some help from (though mostly distraction) Charlie McCarthy, is brought in to solve the murder of a crooked newspaper editor who has connections to the mob. Perhaps it was the absurdity of a ventriloquist's dummy as star, but, whatever it was, Universal was willing to go out on a limb and feature this highly unusual caricature depiction by the uniquely talented Jacques Kapralik. Kapralik's art begins to...

CHINA SEAS (1935)

The adventure film, which pushed the button as far as it could in the post-production code era (a scene of Harlow drenched during a typhoon storm wearing a satin gown...

CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY (1944)
CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY (1944) $300.00

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.

Unfolded, there is a 3" (8 cm.) tear mended on back with brown paper, there...

CITIZEN KANE (1941; 1956 re-issue)
CITIZEN KANE (1941; 1956 re-issue) $1,250.00

Vintage original 40 x 30" (100 x 75 cm.) poster, USA. Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Everett Sloane, Ruth Warrick, Dorothy Comingore, Paul Stewart, dir: Orson Welles; RKO. The towering yet unfulfilled expression of Charles Foster Kane hovers over the image of himself in his political campaign representing his climb to the top from his humble beginnings to a life of privilege, wealth and power.

The industry and the Academy recognized the film for its artistry and innovation, but because of the political uproar it caused it won just one award: the much-deserved Oscar for Best Writing, Original Screenplay to Orson Welles...

American poster (dated 1960) for this UK-made exploitation crime thriller. The poster's by-line really says all that needs to be said about the film.

Folded, FINE.
