Mandolin Titles

I think there was a recent discussion about Mandolin titles. Here are a few I've found, plus an odd shaped poster for Peter Jackson's Braindead.

  • Does anyone have a list of 14th Mandolin titles? I thought there was a thread about this somewhere but can't find it.

    I think this tread is the only one that has appeared here on the forum specifically covering 14th Mandolin. I am unaware of any listings of film titles that this company released.The following film titles are 14th Mandolin daybill images that I have, images of,

    Tanya
    Snow Job
    The Love Cycle
    The Devil's Garden
    Love Of a Nympho
    Midnight Plowboy
    So Young, so Lovely, So Vicious
    A Taste Of Decadence

    I also have a Joey And The Dolphin daybill image. Although the daybill doesn't have a 14th Mandolin  distributor credit  printed on it this film was submitted to the Australian film censorship department by 14th Mandolin. 

    If you have time to search out the RC Refused Classification website you will find many other 14th Mandolin film titles mentioned there.
  • Thanks Lawrence I will see if I can add any posters to that list
  • Acquasanta Joe is another one

    Was Acquasanta Joe also released then by 14th Mandolin as well as Anjohn International? 


  • sorry, i might have had it mixed up
  • No problem. With lots of posters I can imagine some details can get mixed up at times in one's mind.
  • Here are a couple of mine that I came across today
  • Some information on Horror On Snape Island  ( Tower Of Evil ) 14th Mandolin connection shortly.
  • edited September 2023
    Tower Of Evil ( 1972 ), when submitted for re-release by 14th Mandolin. under the alternative title of Horror on Snape Island, it was classified on 35mm by the Australian censor in 1982 

    Love to see the 14th Mandolin daybill.

    More on this subject to follow shortly on the  Screaming Bone-Crushing Horror quiz shortly.

    It would appear there will not have been a daybill of Horror on Snape Island printed, as it seems to have been released on video only.

    The following is a Horror On Snape Island Dutch Pal VHS videotape credited as being from 1981. This is the year before the film was submitted by 14th Mandolin and classified by the Australian censor, thus further supporting the thinking that the film only had a video release under this title in Australia.


  • Here is another one ...

    Really weird the way the title is presented. It looks like Horror Snape on Island!
  • Yes that  appeared very odd to me also.
  • A couple more:
  • One more!
  • It certainly would appear that 14th Mandolin mainly distributed sexploitation film titles in Australia.
      
    Two titles that don't belong in this category that they released here in the 1980's were Madron (1970 ) a western movie and No Way Back ( 1976 ) an action crime drama. I have never sighted daybills for either of these two films. 

    The following information if you are unaware or it may be of interest. 14th Mandorin productions had a video distribution subsidiary, and one of the first in Australia. They operated between 1981 and 1985 focusing on martial arts films. 

     


  • Very interesting! I think I may have seen something for No Way Back, but not 100% sure.
  • Another 14th Mandolin poster ....
