They did 16x20 full color stills for many titles in the late 1960s, and a few 20x30s. I would think that is what these were (just giant blown up stills).I highly doubt they were half-sheets, but I guess anything is possible!
The 16 x 20 and the 20 x 30 sizes don't match up with the advertised 22 X 28 size, that I am looking in to. As the two ''Ad-sales available'' advertised size and the ''selling aids'' advertised size of 22 x 28 were from different film distributors and printed at different times, this size would have to be accurate. Do you have an image of a 20 x 30 or at least the name of the U.S. distributor involved with this size?
Yes it would seem very highly improbable that the advertising would have referred to U.S. half sheets, but with nothing turning up to show and prove what the stills and enlargements looked like, and with some circumstantial evidence I have, suggests to me anyhow, that they could possibly be half sheets advertised with an odd description.
The Sound of Music one sheet was a smaller size.
I think Rick has one??? I've seen one down at Tyabb. It was roughly 22 x 28.
Thanks Matt and others who have replied to my original question put to Bruce and follow up discussions . Is this the poster you are referring to Mark? It is has been described as an Australian window card 23.5'' x 16.5'' one off, as it was printed in error, due to a mixup, according to Phil Edwards.
@Bruce, not sure this has been asked before, but where do you get your inventory for your "Fixed Price Items?" How do you determine a fixed price?
Over a thousand buyers in Canada...hmmm where are they?! Must be all shiny 27x40 collectors
first started in 1990 (as Bruce Hershenson Vintage Movie Posters), that
was of course before the Internet, and although we had over 2,000
customers within a few years, over 90% of those 2,000 customers were
from the U.S., and 10% were from the rest of the world combined.
Back then, there just wasn't a good way for collectors and dealers to
find other collectors and dealers in other countries, except for those
few who regularly traveled the globe. And many of those few were dealers
who made a good living by buying posters from their "home" countries at
low prices, and selling them far away to collectors who had no other
way to purchase them (and also doing the reverse, bringing back
"foreign" posters to their own country).
But when we started our website,
in 1998 (and soon after that we also started eBay auctions) our
customer base (and along with it our international customer base)
exploded in size. Within a couple of years we had 10,000 customers, and
we have continued to grow substantially over the years, and in February
of 2018 we now have had 45,417 customers!
Below is the "pie chart"
showing exactly how those 45,417 customers are distributed all over the
world. Collecting movie paper truly is a world-wide hobby (but there is
LOTS of room for further growth, especially considering we have only had
19 customers from India, and 15 from China)!
