2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) $1,500.00

Vintage original 36 x 14" (90 x 35 cm.) insert poster, USA Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester, Douglas Rain, dir: Stanley Kubrick; MGM. A story of evolution and the race between the computer HAL 9000 (Rain) and the human astronaut Dave Bowman (Dullea) to reach Jupiter and the monolith found there which signals all other monolith placers.

The film, a master in technical achievement and truly an artistic masterpiece in the science fiction realm, realistically detailed the future of technology -- much of which has come to pass during the 40-years since its release. There was an Academy...

3 ORE PER UCCIDERE [THREE HOURS TO KILL] (1954)
3 ORE PER UCCIDERE [THREE HOURS TO KILL] (1954) $1,250.00

Vintage original 39 x 54" (99 x 137 cm.) due folio / 2-fogli poster, Italy. Dana Andrews, Donna Reed, Dianne Foster, Stephen Elliott, dir: Alfred L. Werker; Columbia. A taut Western in the revenge-drama genre about a cowboy accused of murder who hides out in the desert before going back to clear his name.

Italian film poster artist Anselmo Ballester has created beautiful portraits of Andrews and Reed and played up the romantic element of the story, their love haunted by the foreboding noose. On linen. VERY GOOD.

365 NIGHTS IN HOLLYWOOD (1934)
365 NIGHTS IN HOLLYWOOD (1934) $6,500.00

Vintage original 41 x 27" (68 x 103 cm.) stone litho one sheet poster, USA. Alice Faye, James Dunn, Frank Mitchell, Jack Durant, dir: George Marshall; Fox Films. An absolutely legendary, rare and not often offered classic Hollywood poster.

The story of a down-and-out film director who takes to teaching at a film school where he discovers a genuinely talented girl is forgettable. It would be one of the last Fox musicals before the merger with Twentieth Century, and Alice Faye would become the studio's top musical star (evident that she was on her way in this poster in...

99 RIVER STREET (1953)
99 RIVER STREET (1953) $150.00

Vintage original 22 x 28" (55 x 71 cm.) half sheet style A, USA. John Payne, Evelyn Keyes, Brad Dexter, Frank Faylen, Peggie Castle, dir: Phil Karlson; United Artists. Effective noir crime melodrama about a former boxing champ who loses his title and ends up driving a taxi for a living, who ends up being blamed for the murder of his henpecking wife. The film was very effectively directed by Phil Karlson who got unflinching portrayals from the cast, particularly John Payne and with his depiction of the big city as both Heaven and Hell. Folded, VERY GOOD.

ADVENTURE (1925)
ADVENTURE (1925) $1,650.00

Vintage original 23 x 35" (58 x 88 cm.) poster, Sweden. Tom Moore, Pauline Starke, dir: Victor Fleming; Paramount. Wild extravagant design for silent adventure film set in the Solomon Islands. On linen, NEAR FINE

AFFAIR OF THE FOLLIES, AN (1927)
AFFAIR OF THE FOLLIES, AN (1927) $300.00

Vintage original 14 x 36" (35 x 92 cm.) insert poster, USA. Lewis Stone, Billie Dove, Lloyd Hughes, Arthur Stone, Arthur Hoyt, dir: Millard Webb; First National Pictures. A vehicle for the great Ziegfeld Follies star Billie Dove. She portrays Tamara, married to an inventor who cannot get anyone to see his work, who must rejoin the Follies -- and that causes problems for her marriage. Dove, who started her career as a model, became one of the most decorative of the Follies girls and, when Ziegfeld paid too much attention to her, his wife Billie Burke arranged for Miss...

ALGIERS (1938)
ALGIERS (1938) $1,500.00

Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 105 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Hed Lamarr, Charles Boyer, Sigrid Gurie, Joseph Calleia, Alan Hale, Gene Lockhart, dir: John Cromwell; United Artists. Hedy Lamarr made her American film debut in this famous classic romantic melodrama. She had made five films in Europe between 1930 and 1933, the last the notorious ECSTASE, which caused such a scandal that she did not make another film for 5 years. She was contracted by MGM, but Louis B. Mayer loaned her to Wanger for her first American film. It was one of her best and her...

ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS (1955)
ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS (1955) $375.00

Vintage original 36 x 14" (91 x 36 cm.) insert poster, USA. Rock Hudson, Jane Wyman, dir: Douglas Sirk; Universal. One of Douglas Sirk's greatest melodramas, the story of an unlikely romantic pairing between a prosperous widow with a handsome younger gardener who reads Thoreau -- and the discord which ensues, because neither the lady's family nor friends can accept either the difference in social class or in age.

A massively influential film, which was directly remade both by Fassbinder (All Fear Eats the Soul) and Toddy Haynes (Far from Heaven). Douglas Sirk was one of Rock Hudson's mentors during his...

AMARE PER UCCIDERE [WICKED AS THEY COME] (1956)
AMARE PER UCCIDERE [WICKED AS THEY COME] (1956) $2,000.00

Vintage original 39 x 55" (100 x 140 cm.) due folio / 2-fogli poster, Italy. Arlene Dahl, Phillip Carey, Herbert Marshall, Michael Goodliffe, dir: Ken Hughes; Columbia. A vehicle for the beautiful Arlene Dahl, who was swathed in sexy clothes and placed in beautiful sets and did her best acting in the role of a girl who is set on rising from her job in a shirtwaist factory to the top -- letting nothing stand in her way... including murder.

The great Italian poster artist Anselmo Ballester has captured a tense moment from the film. On linen, VERY GOOD.

ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959)
ANATOMY OF A MURDER (1959) $4,000.00

Vintage original 41 x 27" (104 x 69 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. James Stewart, George C. Scott, dir: Otto Preminger. This is one of the greatest of all of Saul Bass' movie posters, and I personally find it more perfectly laid out than his other great masterpiece, Vertigo. It is getting increasingly difficult to find a genuinely nice example of this poster, much less one which is unbacked and entirely unrestored, as this one is.

Folded, with a few scattered pinholes and some light creasing near the bottom of the poster, JUST ABOUT FINE.

ANDY WARHOL'S BLUE MOVIE (1969)

Viva, Louis Waldon; dir: Andy Warhol; Constantin. One of Warhol's superstar Viva's earliest feature films, and one of a small number where she was actually in a lead role, in this case playing herself.

"Producer/director/cinematographer Andy Warhol presents an afternoon in a Manhattan apartment where Viva and Louis discuss social issues while lying in bed. Louis makes sexual advances and Viva giggles; they indulge in sexual foreplay and then intercourse....

ANDY WARHOL'S FLESH (1968)

Dallesandro plays a hustler working the streets of Manhattan; the movie features on screen debuts of two of the most legendary of the Warhol roster of superstars who were transgendered -- Jackie Curits and Candy Darling.
