    Previously announced as coming here on this thread, but the film that the image comes from will now be covered at a later time, on the 'Australia At War Poster' thread.

    The Alamo ( 1960 ). Just in case anyone hasn't picked up on this there are two first release daybills existing for The Alamo. They look the same but there are a few differences.

    The Japanese Bowl ( 1930 ). One of many shorts filmed by Warner Bros in early two-strip Technicolor. There looks like there are more than a few pretenders in the chorus. I have just discovered this image, and seeing it is such a glorious looking poster I though I would share it here.

    Great 1959  U.S.A. four film horror program screening promotion.

    Thanks Lawrence. Interesting title changes to say the least. It's quite a statement on censorship when "racier" titles are always found in the US. And quite comical in many cases.

    A Hill In Korea ( 1956 ) original U.K.title. Released in the U.S. as Hell In Korea

    Eureka Stockade ( 1949 ) original U.K. title. Released in the U.S. as Massacre Hill

    The Full Treatment ( 1960 ) original U.K.title. Released in the U.S. as Stop Me Before I Kill!

    Cheers.




    The Treasure Of San Teresa ( 1959 ) original U.K. title and the more sensational U.S.A. title  used when released there.

    The star of the film Charles Jones later changed his name to Buck Jones, and went on to become one of the greatest 'B' movie western stars of the 1920's up the 1940's. He died at the age of 50 in a fire in 1942.

    On the subject of 'Buck', I was visiting a collector friend today and although he's not into posters (Blasphemy!!), he pulled out a couple of old Daybills he picked up at a garage sale in the late 70's. He recalls they were in a pile of daybills from the same era, that had all been laminated (sacrilege!) post a house fire to keep them in one piece. 

    One of the two was this 'Buck Jones in Against All Odds'



    Unrelated to buck, but he also had this beauty: Curly Top
