    Excellent trade ads Lawrence - thanks for posting them. Not sure that Murder was ever actually released as Enter Sir John. It would be interesting to see daybills for some of these titles.

    From Everyones April 1, 1931 issue confirming that the Australian release title was Enter Sir John. Cover of a novel that was first published in 1928 written by Clemence Dane and Helen Simpson, from which the film was adapted from.
    Perhaps the book was a big seller in Australia and that was the reason they decided to go with this title here.

    Bring on the daybills for the previously mentioned Hitchcock titles.

    Mary was an alternate German language film version shot simultaneously as Murder by Hitchcock, but only released in 1931.

    Another Everyones image, this time from 1929 for Blackmail.



    Australian 1929 newspaper advertisement for Blackmail.

    If one looks at the two following Australian film posters it has Anny Ondra being the main credited star of the film. Her name is not mentioned on the previous advertisements though 



    Australia daybill and an incomplete Australian one sheet.

    A little bit of information from Everyones that I though may be of interest.  Blackmail was originally briefly rejected  for exhibition in Australia in 1929. The film was sent to the Appeal Board where the ban was reversed and passed with ony a little more than 200 feet removed from the film.




    A section of the offending film around where the censoring would have occurred.
