    Rebecca ( 1940 ) original Australian first release long daybill on the left and a 1947 re-release daybill incorrecttly converted to being a long daybill by a restorer and originally was thoughr of as being original release. I believe that people these days know the story behind this poster and now acknowledge it as being a 1947 re-release poster. 

    To further confirm that the poster above on the right if from 1947 I would like to state that all United Artists film posters in 1940 had the following style logo printed on their posters.
     

    The Released Thru United Artists style was what was used in 1947 was the following.

    Lawrence, since you used images from eMoviePoster.com, I think you should have pointed out that the poster on the right IS correctly described (both as being from 1947, and from being incorrectly restored). Someone solely reading your text might think that we have it incorrectly described on our site.

    Thanks!

    Sorry Bruce for not mentioning your posters as being correctly described on your website. I should have been more thorough than I was in providing information.

     My '' I believe that people these days  know the story behind this poster and now acknowledge it as being a 1947 re-release poster", was actually refering to your information published on your website and that members would know this. Yes it is possible some members and guests that haven't read the information originally published by you may have thought that the poster on the right is incorrectly described as being original on your website.
     
    My follow up information regarding the United Artists information was just to reinforce what you had already stated, in that the poster was a 1947 re-release poster.  

    I hope now that I have set the record straight.

    The Silence Of Dean Maitland ( 1934 ) late 1930's second printing daybill. I am uncertain if there was an official re-release or not. or just the popularity of the film waranted a second printing. An extremely rare poster, but beware if it ever comes up for sale and is advertised as being an original printed 1934 first release poster that it isn't one. The distributor's logo on the poster is incorrect for 1934 and the credit positioning for Jocelyn Howarth is also incorrect for 1934. The original 1934 daybill should have have had this logo appearing on it as it appears on the 1934 newspaper advertisement for the film below. The original billing for Jocelyn Howarth would have been similar to what appears on the ad also. The reason for her elevation in the credits on the later printed 1930's daybill is that at this time she was then working in Hollywood under her new name of Constance Worth and had some brief fame there.



    An Australian placed advertisement that appeared in the April 28, 1937 edition of the trade publication Everyones.




    Original U.S.A. artwork from 1937.




    A U.K. London trade publication from 1934 interestingly not including the then named Jocelyn Howarth in the actors credits listed.




    I thought that readers of this information may be also interested in learning that the film was re-released in Australia in 1947 and appeared to have had theatrical bookings up to 1949 here. The advertisement that appears above was from screenings, most likely for one week with continuous sessions, at the Lyric theatre in Newsastle N.S.W. in 1947.

    There should be a daybill out there somewhere from this re-release that hopefully that will turn up one day. The possibility though of finding a copy of the original 1934 daybill is most likely very remote. The reason for not finding an original 1934 poster still existing is as the latter printing may have resulted in many of the original printing copies that were still remaining at Paramount offices to have been destroyed. Also not in it's favour to have one that is still existing and turn up, is that posters from the early 1930's are extremely rare as most posters from that time were just destroyed.



    I thought that I would now include here some poster artwork produced for the original 1934 Australian release of The Silence Of Dean Maitland that I obtained from the March 28 1934 issue of Everyones publication. As well as the 24 sheet it is interesting that there are two one sheet designs displayed, with a suggestion  that there may have even been more one sheets designs produced.  



    This is a clearer picture of the style of BEF logo that appears on the one sheets. This is the style of logo used in 1934 which doesn't appear on the only known The Silence Of Dean Maitland daybill, which is a late 1930s printing displaying the style of logo used then.
