All above six daybills were printed for the original Australian theatrical release.Daughter Of Mine original U.S.A. television publicity material above. The Stars Don't Shine was part of the series but a daybill image hasn't been located, but the above Australian newspaper advertisement is proof of it's release here in Australia.The Ford Television Theatre half hour versions ( 1952 -1957 ). There were 195 episodes shown on U.S.A. television. The series was produced by Screen Gems hence Columbia Pictures handling the theatrical release.The titles that I am aware of that obtained a theatrical release here in Australia are -Edge Of The Law ( 1952 ) Sunk ( 1952 ) Emergency ( 1953 )The Ming Lama ( 1953 )Tangier Lady ( 1953 )Daughter Of Mine ( 1954 )he Stars Don't Shine ( 1955 )To date I have located that seven titles out of the original 157 episodes of the series were released in Australia, in it appears in the later half of the 1950's. It is possible there may have been some others also released here, but due to the brevity of the running times, any records are near impossible to locate. It appears that the only way of establishing any other titles is if any other daybills or newspaper advertisements turn up that I will be able to identify titles as being part of the series. This certainly appears that this will be the only way of establishing any more titles
My Friend Flicka television series consisted of 39 episodes which ran in 1955 and 1956 in the U.S.A. I am not sure how many of the episodes were screened theatrically in Australia, but the displayed images show us at least ten were.
For Bruce and others the daybill images of the only four titles released theatrically in Australia.Superman And Scotland Yard ( released in Australia in 1954 ).Superman Flies Again ( released in Australia in 1955 ).Superman In Exile ( released in Australia in 1956 ). Superman's Peril ( released in Australia in 1957 ). Some additional information is that an Australian one sheet of Superman's Peril appeared in the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace movie poster auction in 1995. Apart from me sighting a very small and dark image in the catalogue, I have, to the best of my knowledge, never seen an image of the one sheet for this title, or any other one sheet images of the other three Superman titles listed above.
My apologies Bruce as there was a fifth Superman film released in Australia titled Superman And The Jungle Devil. I wouldn't have thought the film would have been released as late as it apparently was in Australia. I have almost all the Sydney release information from the 1950's, but unfortunately I don't have the information for the July 1 1958 to June 30 1959 releases. It would appear Superman And The Jungle Devil was released in Sydney sometime during this period. I have now managed to find that the film was shown in December 1960 at a Sydney suburban theatre and also in Canberra ACT in January 1961. No daybill located but hopefully you will one day find your 2000 sold image to share with us. To make amends for missing this title, and through some further digging on my part, I have come up with this one sheet image from Worthpoint that I did't know existed. Interestingly it says there are three in total.
