American International Pictures ( AIP ) Slow Start In Australia.
American International Pictures was formed in the U.S.A. in April, 1954 as American Releasing Corporation but within a short amount of time had a name change to American International Pictures. A surprising amount of the films released under the two names from 1954 to 1969 were not released in Australia, Some were banned from exhibition here but a lot appears were not picked up for distribution in Australia from a variety of distributors.. Film distributors that handled the 1950s & 1960s output in Australia included Ray Films, IFD, MGM, Columbia, Blake, Paramount & Roadshow. Some of the 1960s titles that were banned were finally released in the late 1960s with the majority in the early 1970s.

British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
