    Let me know if that owner happens to want to part with LMT so a dedicated Elvis fan can complete his daybill collection.


    Yeah, that would be a no.  They are just as dedicated as you are...

    An owner of the daybill for Love Me Tender graciously agreed for me to share with you this much better image, and based off this picture, we have a winner.  Printed by Robert Burton as suggested by Lawrence.  Case closed now?


    Very happy. Case is indeed closed. Pity the Robert Burton credit was missing from the original Love Me Tender image that was posted. One thing to finish up with  is it is rare for Robert Burton's credit to be in red or any other colour. Usually printed in blue / black.

    For those who still wish to see the Love Me Tender daybill, here is my good deed for the day.

    Craig's image of The Conqueror ( 1956 ), which I had copied, is back.

    edited March 30

    To be added to the list of missing daybills, particularly of interest to Bogart fans, and for Ves who loves David Niven, are the following.

    Dead End ( 1937 ), Re-released by Ray Films in Australia in 1954.

    Raffles  ( 1939 ).  Re-released by Ray Films in Australia in 1954.

    For any interested parties don't hold out too much hope for great looking daybills turning up though. They most likely will have been drawn in a similar style to The Westerner and Wuthering Heights, films also from the back catalogue of Samuel Goldwyn, and re-released in Australia circa 1954.





     Dead End and Raffles mentioned in the  Australian Women's Weekly City film guide from a 1954 publication.

    As this thread was introduced to cover missing Australian film daybills from the 1950's and the 1960's, I rarely mention films released before or after this period. In this case though I will mention that the original The Westerner ( 1940 ) and Wuthering Heights ( 1939 ) United Artists long daybills are also missing in action.

    Thanks Chris for sharing the wonderful Marchant daybill image.

    I thought I would share the following newspaper article from 1954, talking about the Samuel Goldwyn back catalogue re-releases purchased by Ray Films in Australia. I had previously mentioned this topic on March 30 of this year. Sorry for the quality of the article but that is how it came.
