    Haven't bought much lately, but this is probably one of the GREATEST acquisitions I have ever made. Still can't believe it.
    It's a folder with a hundred pages of press material for "Strange World", straight from the producing studio. Official press releases, drafts, handwritten material (apparently from one of the producers), and many more stuff.



    There was even this piece of original artwork (gouache I believe) of a shrunken head

    a colored comic book version of the film:



    And a bunch of stills, including some of the film stars goofing around in the beaches of Rio

    Great haul. I particually like the colours and the artistry of The Rainmaker.The red and yellow combination certainly works here in this case.

    Although Death In Small Doses is nice, one has to wonder what the design of this film would have looked like had It been designed by the Richardson Studio.

    The film was released in the U.S.A. in 1957 by Allied Artists, but due to the Allied Artists product, after a delay in negotiations with RKO Radio. who were to take over Australian distribution rights then going out of business, the Australian rights then were  transferred from United Artists to Paramount Pictures.

    A large backlog of A.A. product, along with their own Paramount Pictures product, then created a problem with Paramount securing release dates for some of their product awaiting release. Death In Small Doses wouldn't have been a priority with Paramount, and it only obtained a release in late1961 in Sydney. Had the film been released earlier in 1958, 1959 or even early 1960, the artwork would have ended up on Richardson's desk and then a different design result would certainly have taken place.

    Lancaster & Hepburn, both great stars from their respective eras. Almost completely forgotten by the modern generation.

    Noticed that prices have been rising lately on 1950s mags with MM covers. I sold one a few weeks ago to a business in Melbourne that is using it for display in their shop. There are some nice images and framing is affordable.
    Just got this Aussie mag in >> yesterday.
