Why does it have an A rating as well as "Revised" wording?
A reply to a query regarding Dial M For Murder that I received back from a contact in New Zealand is as follows.
'' Thanks for your email. Dial M For Murder was classified 'A' with cuts in 1954. The 'revised' may refer to the film being a cut version, or to the classification being amended in some way - however I'm not sure anout this - as far as I can see the classification of the film did not change when released on 16mm in 1956. I have attached the excision notice for the film.
Hope this is helpful.''
Matt had previously explained the 'A' classification, but the 'revised' wording most likely will remain a mystery though.
Pre annoying mobile phone distractions there were many other distractions it appears.
Does something look a little odd to you here, and if so what is it ?
Guns In The Afternoon ( 1962 ). I woner why the Metrocolor was altered to Colour in New Zealand?
Big Jake ( 1971 ).Original daybill printed for the late 1971 Australian release and three stock daybill posters printed after the change in Australian censorship ratings occured in November 1971. One printing with the new censorship rating applied would have been sufficient one would have thought, so one wonders why three variations in colour of the same design were needed for a follow up stock poster for a film that was far away from setting any records at the box office.
