    has anyone seen a Black Christmas daybill?
    This is a much later film than which I had planned to discuss. Nevertheless the film was passed by the Australian censor in 1976. The applicant was Cinecenta Films a small independent distributor. I can remember only sighting one daybill produced by them which was an uninspiring duotone poster. Cinecenta Films probably produced a daybill of some sort but probably in only limited numbers knowing the release would only be limited.


    The great horror poster god says if you mean this film then yes, they exist:

    This looks familiar...

    Three films that come under the category of Horror or Sci-Fi that no daybill images appear to have surfaced are --

    Jack The Ripper ( 1959 version ) ( Blake )

    Valley Of The Dragons ( 1961 ) ( Columbia )

    Carnival of Souls ( 1962 ) Cult film that I'm surprised hasn't surfaced. It was screened as a double bill in Sydney in the 1960's with The Devi'ls Messenger which starred Lon Chaney which has been sighted. Both films were distributed in Australia by RFD ( Regent Film Distributors ).

    I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has daybills for any of these titles or has ever sighted them.

    I'm inquiring about are out there somewhere.

    Does anyone else like to list any titles that appear missing?

    Let's add  to the list -   

                                                                                                                                                                                     The Monster That Challenged The World ( 1957 ) ( United Artists ) that  John mentioned on the Missing Daybills  thread.

    Captive Women ( 1952 ) ( RKO  Radio )

    The Four Skulls Of Jonathan Drake ( 1959 ) ( United Artists}


    Another to add -

    Macumba Love ( 1960 )  ( United Artists )



    Macumba Love exists; I'm sure I've got a daybill tucked away. If memory serves, I bought it from John Reid. If I can't find an image I think he'd have one.

    This is all I have seen on Repulsion. Not sure if anything else exists.

                                                                                                                                                                                   Thanks John for the two images.

    Although not credited the Repulsion is most likely the Blake Films daybill and is probably the only one printed in their style of poster for that period of time that Blake films advertising budget allowed.

    The Macumba Love poster I will make two remarks. The image of Ziva Rodann looks nothing like her and the daybill  image is lame compared to the attached U.S. insert image.

    On saying that it is always great to see daybill images of titles not sighted previously. At least it is for me.

    Of the 23 films on the master lists only four images so far have been made available for all to see. As I have mentioned on various threads there are a lot of daybill posters unseen by many so hopefully by listing titles some of them may turn up soon.

    I take this back...I was thinking of a different film...just realised you were talking about the '52 film...sorry to put false hope out there.

    I certainly aim to. There are a couple of obscure films released by Blake Films that I only have the title and date released in Australia for that are being hard to identify and also a title that was released at film festivals but appears it missed out on a commercial release and if so there will not be any daybill poster.Pity if this is the case as it a very well known French film and there are bound to be others I have yet to identify. Still lots of research with cross checking to do.
