    Thank you Sven for the rare image of Birth Of A Monster ( aka Quatermass 11 / Enemy From Space ). Much better artwork than I had expected although you had mentioned it was printed by W.E Smith

    You are welcome lawrence. Monster that challenge the world also released in 1957 and printed by we smith has similar blues and orange tones. I wonder if there is an explanation or just sheer coincidence.

    Sheer coincidence I feel Sven. These colour combinations were only two examples of many used of this colour combination on W.E.Smith printed daybills of United Artists titles from the 1950s. There were lots of other examples using these blues & orange colours which included  black as well as white on the posters which included The Long Wait, The Fake, The Maze & Torpedo Alley among many others.

    Didn't we have the Hands Of Orlac? I do have it, so let me know if the image isn't here.
    Whenever you get a chance would love to see it.

    Sven had kindly provided this image in June 2016 of Birth Of A Monster, but it has since been removed.  I had kept a copy for my files so I have reintroduced it back onto the thread.

    I can't remember seeing it and it's definitely not on this thread anyway. It would be great if you would download the image.

    I saw The Hands Of Orlac daybill image recently on Google but couldn't download it and now its gone altogether. Do you have the image Pancho you could let us see?

     ''X'' The Man With The X-Ray Eyes ( 1963 ) previously listed as a missing daybill and possibly released in Australia by Roadshow. A complete mystery as the only release date I can locate is in 1972 and I am still thinking possibly as a Roadshow re-release along with other AIP first release and re-release horror titles Roadshow obtained, many of which had been previously banned in Australia. The above 8 x 10 Australian card has the Australian distributor Blake Films printed on it. Blake films appeared to have released selective AIP product for only a short time early to mid 1960's. A daybill or any other Australian posters would be great to see.

    Mighty Joe Young ( 1949 ) was released in Australia in 1949, and it appears in Australia only, with the original U.S. working title for the film Mr. Joseph Young Of Africa. A beautiful Simmons RKO full bleed poster and the first time I have sighted a daybill for this title. Another image found and slowly and surely images are surfacing for long unseen titles for all to now appreciate.

    For a split second I thought that was the Mad Love daybill...then I gave my head a shake
    There's a street of lights
    A long dark night
    Restaurant scenes
    And dark machines...

    8g882 FOUR SKULLS OF JONATHAN DRAKE Aust daybill 1959 completely different open coffin artwork

    Don't know if there's a nicer version out there?
  • HONDOHONDO Member Posts: 7,017 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector

    Is there another version of this United Artist poster as well? Both Curse Of The Faceless Man and The Four Skulls Of Jonathan Drake, on all the copies I have sighted have no Australian censorship ratings on the poster. I have reason to believe there was possibly an original colour version printed as well.

     The Clown And The Kid ( 1961 ).

    Starting late 1950s into the 1960s United Artists had a large amount of duotone posters produced. Most of the posters were follow up posters printed in duotone by an unlisted printer of mainly "A' grade films.There were also a great number of "B' grade films also printed in duotone such as 'Curse Of The Faceless Man' and 'The Four Skulls Of Jonathan Drake', along with many others. It would be fair to comment that some people have said the "B' grade titles may have been printed only in duotone. A fair comment, but the above "B' film 'The Clown And The Kid' original Advertising And Commercial  colour daybill was also printed by an unknown printer in duotone as well. I believe then one could argue then that original colour daybills could exist for 'Curse Of The Faceless Man', 'The Four Skulls Of Jonathan Drake' and many others as well.
