Mario Bava daybills

PanchoPancho Member Posts: 548 ✭✭✭ Daybiller
The late Mario Bava was a very influential horror director in the 1960s and 70s. Unfortunately for daybill collectors, this coincides with the period where the Oz censors were banning horror left and right. I have a few of Bava's daybills and would be interested to know if any others exist.

I have:

* The Evil Eye (A.K.A The Girl Who Knew too Much) - 1963

* Blood and Black Lace - 1964

* Baron Blood - 1972


* House of Exorcism (A.K.A Lisa and the Devil) - 1972



There would be at least another 6 - 8 horror films between 1963 and 1977 that were released; I'd love to know if anyone can shed any light on them.

    Black Sunday was most likely banned originally in the early 1960s ( see my ''Films That Were Most Likely Banned In Australia ) thread. The film was also submitted for classification in 1970 and was banned along with a follow up appeal to the Film Censorship Review Board. There is definitely no daybill so I would cease searching.

    Black Sabbath most likely banned so no daybill.

    Planet Of The Vampires most likely banned so no daybill.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     My opinion is all of the remaining seven films were either not picked up for distribution in Australia or banned prior to 1970  therefore there will be no daybills in existence. Sad news I am sure.

    thanks Hondo and David for all the info.

    Some unintentional incorrect information supplied above. Island Of Terror mentioned is a 1966 British film directed by Terrence Fisher and is not the 1970 film directed by Mario Bava.

    It's wonderful that the opportunity exists to see this films now in Australia in their uncut versions, but when you see the great international art for some of these films, you can't help but wonder what the daybills might have looked like:

    7442 HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON 1sh 69 Bava 3w467 BLACK SUNDAY insert 61 Mario Bava deep in this demons eyes is a hidden unspeakable secret 5m474 BLACK SABBATH insert 64 Karloff in Mario Bavas I Tre volti Della Paura severed head 5m698 PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES insert 65 Mario Bava beings of the future great Reynold Brown art

    4x084 KILL BABY KILL linen 3sh 67 Mario Bavas Operazione Paura creepy porcelain doll with knife 

    'What' is the US title for 'The Whip and The Body'.

    Good stuff Mark!
     *sigh *  ain't they pretty pictures? Maybe it's better that the Aussie censors didn't get their claws into the art.

    BTW, Blood and Black Lace is perfect in B/W.

    Wouldn't want it any other way.

    Cheers,
