    As you say, fairly easy.

    I'm more intrigued by the posters in the background for Rock Island Trail (1950) 
    and Manhatten Melodrama (1934)

    Seems unlikely that these two films would be playing at the same time.  Further, the title character of the film you asked for would have died 16 years before Rock Island Trail was released

    Yes you are spot on with your observations. The image isn't what you think it may be though. The other yet unnamed film is spot on though as it was the one screened at the theatre attended in the film.



    Just to make things more interesting here is an image from the film with a 1937 Kermit Maynard film Galloping Dynamite poster hanging on the wall.

     # 44 - Manhattan Melodrama ( 1934 ) U.S.A. insert poster. Let's add to the fun by asking what film was this particular insert design used in. We now have 43 and 44 featuring film posters of Manhattan Melodrama.

    This one from the image displayed shouldn't present any problem in being able to identity the film's name                                                      

     

    The four people in period costume appear to be at a screening of the completed film. The two men in the image play actual enemies in the film waiting to be identified..

    O.K. then the answer to # 43. The film being prompted here is Dillinger ( 1973 ). The actor's shown here wearing  their costumes from the film appear to be attending an early screening of the film are from left to right Ben Johnson, Cloris Leachman,Michelle Phillips and Warren Oates.In the film Ben Johnson played FBI agent Melvin Purvis and Warren Oates pertrayed gangster John Dillinger.

    We now have only # 44 to solve, This style of Manhattan Melodrama poster was used in a more modern motion picture.

    Manhattan Melodrama ( 1934 ) insert poster design seen above as it was displayed in Public Enemies ( 2009 ) the answer to # 44. In Public Enemies Johnny Depp played John Dillinger and Christian Bale played Melvin Purvis.



    You may be interested in hearing that the real Melvin Purvis was nicknamed 'Little Mel' and was only 5'4'' in height. In Dillinger Ben Johnson who played Purvis was 6'2'' in height and in Pubilic Enemies Christian Bale who portrayed him  was actually 5' 11 3/4'' in real life.

    I wonder how many adults give their height by quarters of an inch :(

                                                                               44

    I most likely should have left this one in the too hard basket, but what the heck.

     A clue is that the film this scene appeared in was banned in some countries including Australia, and the film displayed on the giant billboard should help to narrow down the time that the film awaiting to be identified was released


                                                                            45
    Should be a much easier image to identify. The poster is a combination of fact and fiction.

    45. Inglorious Basterds

    Correct. Inglourious Basterds released in 2009. 






    The above billboard film poster of Der Schmerz Bitterer Tranen is that of a fake film. Bridget von Hammersmark is of course the fictional character played in Inglourious Basterds by Diane Kruger shown above with  Zarah Leander who was in fact a real life Swedish singer and actress. Zarah Leander  was Germany's most popular actress during the Nazi period.

    Correct and well done. I didn't think anyone would possibly work this one out as there wasn't much to work with.

                                                                 46     

    The clue here to work on is the identity of the male actor in the scene above. 



                                                               47   

     This scene comes from a well regarded classic British film from the 1940s.
