Rare Australian Posters Of Australian Films
# 1.Typhoon Treasure ( 1938 ). First of a series of rare Australian printed posters of films that were made in Australia. A daybill of unknown length. Note no blank white section at the top of the poster. I am sure the poster is from the original and only release in Australia in 1938 and the top of the poster has been trimmed. Only image I have ever seen of this title.
The Phantom Stockman ( 1953 ). Rare Australian daybill. Chips Rafferty appears a little too big for the horse, but otherwise a nice poster.
I did miss seeing them John so thanks for letting me know they exist. Found this additional card on Google that I didn't see on your website at first look. The image is credited as being yours and an item it appears sold. It is also the scene card I like the best of the four. You mention on your website ''Exceptionally Rare'', which is indeed the case with this film title.
Newspaper Clippings from 4-11-1944 & 13-1-1944.
# 8. A Yank In Australia ( 1942 ) ( top image ). No Australian film distributor found. It was given the World premiere in the City Hall Brisbane on the 11th Of November, 1944. There were few other Australian screenings. Surprisingly there was a limited release in the U.K. in early 1945 followed by limited screenings in the U.S.A. in New York. Be sure to read the scathing review above. This is the one and only poster of any description located.
# 9. Night Club ( 1952 ) ( above ). Ray Films was the Australian film distributor. It had a very limited release, a few screenings only. By all accounts a very poorly made film. Again as in the case of A Yank In Australia the above image is of the one and only poster of any description located.
Thanks to Mark for a bunch of clippings...these in particular of interest to me...would love to see actual poster images:

"Z" on the border, all I can think is Zeck?

Both very desirable Australian film posters of this title.
