Vintage orginal 29; x 19" (76 x 49 cm.) poster, UK.

"Derek Taylor was a national journalist when he was assigned to write a review of a Beatles concert. He had been expected by his editors to write a piece critical of what at that time was considered by the national press as an inconsequential teen fad. However, he was enchanted by the group and instead sang their praises. Shortly afterwards, he was invited to meet The Beatles and soon became a trusted journalist in their circle.

"As The Beatles gained national attention in Britain, Taylor's editors conceived of running a column...

Set of eight (8) vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby cards, USA. Deborah Kerr, David Niven, Jean Seberg, Mylene Demongeot, Geoffrey Horne, Juliette Greco, dir: Otto Preminger; Columbia. One of the great auteur Preminger's most unusual, experimental films. A wonderful character study with the luminescent Jean Seberg playing a 17-year-old girl with a rich playboy father who is about to marry a woman from his past, and her displeasure with that. The original novel was by 17-year-old Francoise Sagan, and with superb acting and Preminger's creative handling (told much in color flashback scenes, with present day...

Part horror/part mystery, with touches of humor, this is likely the best remembered of the Chan films....

COVER GIRL (1944) $1,200.00 SOLD

Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 36 cm.) lobby card, USA. Rita Hayworth, dir: Charles Vidor; Columbia. This scarce lobby card is arguably the single most sought after and desirable of all 1940s pin up cards, and it is a very difficult piece to find. There has been some minor touch-up to blank margins to address what were some scattered stains, overall VERY GOOD+.

DARK PASSAGE (1947)
DARK PASSAGE (1947) $2,500.00 SOLD

Vintage original 41 x 27" (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Agnes Moorehead, Bruce Bennett, Tom d'Andrea; dir.: Delmer Daves. A much darker journey into the film noir realm for Bogart and Bacall than their early, wildly successful BIG SLEEP, this time from a lurid David Goodis novel of a man (Bogart) wrongly convicted of the murder of his wife, rescued by a concerned courtroom spectator (Bacall) and who must change his notorious face through back-door plastic surgery in order to find the real killer. One of the truly great films of this now-revered...

Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) photo, USA. Linda Blair, dir: William Friedkin; Warner Brothers. This production photo was sent out by the studio while the film was being prepared and then shot in 1972. It had its world premiere on December 26, 1973. With text attached, FINE.

FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL! (1965) $2,500.00 SOLD

Vintage original 41 x 27" (103 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Tura Satana, Haji, Lori Williams, Ray Barlow, Sue Bernard, dir: Russ Meyer; Eve Productions. One of the most famous ground-breaking films of all time and one of the films which broke down the walls of the legion of decency Production Code, which had influenced the way films had been made for more than 30 years. It was the theme and the suggestion which had the office up in arms. Though there was no nudity, the film broke many taboos and made way for the dissolving of the...

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943) Revised Final [by] Dudley Nichols July 20, 1942
FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS (1943) Revised Final [by] Dudley Nichols July 20, 1942 $1,250.00 SOLD

The famous screen adaptation which starred Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman, directed by Sam Wood. Studio mimeograph, self-wrappers, the original two staples are missing, and so the pages are loose, 202 pp. the title page and the final page are a bit fragile, overall VERY GOOD+.

This film, when released in 1943, had an epic running time of 170 minutes, but this script's massive length implies an even longer film, which in turn suggests that some of the scenes in this script were either never shot or else were not included in the finalized version.

G-MEN (1935)
G-MEN (1935) $2,500.00 SOLD

Vintage original 22 x 14" (55 x 35 cm.) window card poster, USA.. James Cagney, Margaret Lindsay, Ann Dvorak, Robert Armstrong, Barton MacLane, Lloyd Nolan, dir: William Keighley; Warner Bros. Cagney was known as the most famous bad man in movies at the time, but he started a change of image when he joined the "G-Men" (aka FBI) for this film. Cagney is at the center of the "G." Nice Art Deco feel in the colors, background and title graphics. Original ink imprint at top for Markay Theatre. This is likely the 1930-built theater, in Jackson, Ohio, which has been...
