Where Are These Daybills?

HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 8,006 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector


I am starting a list of film titles from the 1950s and 1960s only where there should be original Australian daybill images but to date none are available to view currently on the web.


Please supply images on this thread if or when you have access to them.

COMMAND, THE

ENCHANTED ISLAND  ( IMAGE SINCE POSTED BY JOHN )

    I have Enchanted Island. Which Molly are you referring to? If its the one with Gertrude Berg, I have an image for that.

    I have had Affair to Remember (full colour) but no image at the moment. Some Came Running and Never So Few - the jury is out!

    I would be pleased to see Enchanted Island and Molly ( aka The Goldbergs ) images. The other versions I believe that exist of Never So Few and Some Came Running and not the ones currently being discussed on another thread,

    Thanks John you are on a roll. This film would have sunk without a trace i'm sure. All the three images you have posted are indeed rare.

    I've been searching for Broken Lance & The Command for about 5 years. No sign anywhere ...

    I have never sighted a daybill image of Flight From Ashiya  previously and now two turn up.

     Sadly not mine, so with great pain I post this one. :s

  • HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 8,006 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
    Great poster and very scarce. I have never seen it before. Thanks for posting so all can now see.
    Lawrence
  • theartofmovieposterstheartofmovieposters Member Posts: 4,032 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
    Yes, so now I enlist you all to be on the lookout should one surface and HELP ME TO OWN THIS POSTER!
  • HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 8,006 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector
    I'll keep a lookout for it and refrain from trying to own it and let you be in front of me in the queue.

    Thank you...thank you very very much :)

    I sold two Scared Stiff daybills about 15 years ago through my outlet in an antique center. Since then I have never seen another one.

    Yea, the sad thing is I know where two are, but they aren't letting go of them any time soon :(

    Thanks for Johnny Concho and Elmer Gantry John. The daybill poster of Johnny Concho is as rare as a decent copy of the film. Johnny Concho appears to be in litigation and has been so for a very long time. Almost nothing has been written about this or why this happened.

    This thread and others I have posted along with others as well are very fulfilling and enjoyable to me. To be able to see images of mainly unseen posters and to share these with daybill enthusiasts is great.

    Two more to add and I will attach them to the master list soon are Home From The Hill, Four Days In November & Gigi. Gigi of all posters. There is a lot of material around but where is a daybill?

    Lawrence
  • JohnJohn Member, Dealer Posts: 1,137 ✭✭✭✭ Three-Sheeter
    That Johnny Concho is a fantastic daybill. I'm sure I have had Gigi but will have to go through the images. I will post images for Great Race soon and there might be one or two others as well. I wish I still had an image of An Affair to Remember but just cant find it.
