    A long dark night
    Restaurant scenes
    And dark machines...

    Jim Carrey's impersonation of James Stewart is so funny!

    Hi guys im nterested to know which is more popular to collect ; Inserts or Half Sheets ?

    Do you think  there are collectors who only collect  either inserts  OR half sheets?

    I think inserts are more popular but as to collectors who only collect one or the other, Bruce would have an idea.

    Inserts are slightly more popular, likely because there are more places on more walls to hang them.

    But both lag FAR behind one-sheets.

    That's interesting Bruce because with Australian posters, I find that one sheets lag far behind daybills in terms of popularity. I think Australian collectors tend to overlook one sheets and I often hear people say that they are only interested in daybills.

    I completely agree, John. I think this is like the difference between British Quads and English one-sheets. I think that most Australian one-sheets and English one-sheets were sent to Canada and other English speaking countries, and that, back home, most Australian cinemas used daybills, and most English cinemas used quads, and that Australian and English collectors prefer posters like what they saw at theaters growing up.

    And in America, after 1960 most theaters used one-sheets, and few used inserts or half-sheets, which would explain why most U.S. collectors prefer one-sheets for those movies.
