Eric Dare / Dare Films / House Of Dare Australian Daybills

HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 8,126 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector

I am in the process of listing all the films that were released in Australia by Eric Dare / Dare Films / House Of Dare.


The following titles from the 1970s are the ones I am aware of.


BETTY BLOKK BUSTER FOLLIES

CITIZEN KANE ( re-release )

GULLIVER'S TRAVELS ( re-release )

HOPPITY GOES TO TOWN ( re-release )

KING KONG ( re-release )


Does anyone have any daybills or any other form of Australian posters with any mention of Eric Dare, Dare Films or House Of Dare printed on them?


Have daybill images of four of the five  above listed films but would love to see a daybill for the Citizen Kane  RR.

    I recently discovered Eric Dare released product under the Garland Productions name. Titles found so far with daybills and also in some cases one sheets are as follows.

    Autopsy ( 1975 )

    Eyeball ( 1975 )

    Girl In Room 2A ( 1974 )

    Mouse And His Child, The ( 1977 )

    Slave of The Cannibal God ( 1978 )

    Slithis ( 1978 )


    I would be pleased if anyone else knows of any other Garland Productions daybills or Australian one sheets to kindly inform us here on the thread.


    Also I have sighted a version of Jack and The Beanstalk from 1974  that shows on the daybill '' Presented By Eric Dare''.

    The Shoemaker And The Elves ( The Shoemaker ) ( 1956 ) Originally released in West Germany in 1956 , then the U.S.A. in 1967 and Australia in the 1970s.

    Looking back over the product Eric Dare released in Australia he appeared to attempt to cater to the very young audiences as well as importing product with a very adult content.

    I recently wrote a book chapter on the distribution of Italian cannibal films in Melbourne and Dare was very prominent. Basically, it would seem that the outstanding success of MAN FROM DEEP RIVER financed the early stage success of Reg Livermore!

    At work over night, but when home tomorrow and can access my notes I will try and fill in as many other Dare / Garland titles.

    That would be great.

    I collect horror / exploitation posters and I think I may have daybills for all the Italian cannibals films released in the 70s and 80s. Would you have a list of cannibal films released in that period that you could share? Please?

    Another daybill poster sighted from the Eric Dare stable is The Hottest Show In Town ( 1974 ).
    Submitted to the Australian film censor by the applicant The House Of Dare in 1981. The film ended up being credited as Garland Productions on the daybill.

    Another important release by Eric Dare was The Pawnbroker  ( 1964 ), released in Australia in 1967. No Australian posters sighted. Does anyone have an image?

    I just noticed this from March 2016, too years ago. I would have loved to have received back any information that would have been available.

    Another Eric Dare release in Australia was Andy Warhol's Heat ( 1972 ). House Of Dare was the applicant's name when the film was submitted for censorship, but Eric Dare presents appears on the daybill.

    Another title to be listed is The Swinging Cheerleaders ( 1974 ). Credited as being Garland Productions on the Australian daybill.

    The Pawnbroker ( 1964 ). Previously mentioned on this thread and a daybill has since turned up with ''L. Williams In Association With Eric Dare Present'' appearing on the poster.
