As with the other Columbia pictures series, Australian film posters are hard to locate. This has been the most difficult so far of the Columbia Pictures series that I have featured here on the forum to find posters of. Of the seven titles not a single daybill image has been located, and one only Australian one sheet has come to light. The title being Enemy Agents Meet Ellery Queen ( 1942 ) and the last one in the series. This image I only accidentally came across. It was sold in a bulk lot of five posters, and as as such the title isn't listed individually on Bruce's website. I understand the reason behind this practice, but it certainly makes my research into tracking down film titles a little harder to achieve. On saying that I do like a challenge though,
Does anyone per chance have any Australian daybill, one sheet or an extremely unlikely to exist today three sheet images of the series entries that they can share with us here? Low expectation but one never knows.
