New Zealand Film Poster Distribution

In the past New Zealand film distributors have used various Countries film poster material to promote there product for release there. Australia, U.S.A. and the U.K. were the providers. The following example is interesting in that a U.S.A. one sheet had a snipe added from Australian paper.

U.S.A. one sheet adapted for the New Zealand release.  Australian daybill printed for Australian release. The original U.S.A. release poster.


The Flim-Flam Man from 1967 is an interesting example of where 20th Century Fox, the Australian and New Zealand film distributor, decided to adapt the U.S. one sheet for the New Zealand release, instead of just using the Australian one sheet design with ''One Born Every Minute'' appearing on it. As simple as this sounds they opted to add a snipe with the new overseas title which was taken from Australian material, and add the words ''N.Z. title'' alongside it.
