I`m very happy I managed to get my hands on this US Advance for Escape From Alcatraz




OK, Not a film poster as such, but a cool US Bus Stop poster from 1988

Why? To hold his trousers up of course  ;D

The belt is actually brown when you see it for real  ;)

While cataloging last night I noticed that I do not have a UK Quad for Pink Cadillac (SHOCK...HORROR  :D). 

Now that has started me thinking..........I have never came across one before, let alone seen one.  Does it exist?  Come to think of it, if I recall, Pink Cadillac never got a UK cinema screening, I may be wrong.  I think it was a straight to video job.

Can any member enlighten me?  Is there a UK Quad for Pink Cadillac?  If so, could someone post an image?


Thanks in advance

Congrats on the GERMAN DOUBLE PANEL! Reasonable price too, only a handful of those survived.
The ADVANCE is also super-scarce. Do you have it ? I don''t even have a perfect copy (trimmed at the bottom by 1/3 inch):

That is terrific, Mike ... I'll translate the German for those who might be curious:

Quote
He came and conquered. The hero without a hero's face:
Clint Eastwood.

He came and conquered. In a film without precedent:
"A Fistful of Dollars."

Clint Eastwood returns—in his second film. Another Western,
even tougher, even more merciless!

That last word, "erbarmungsloser" or "more merciless" is interesting in view of the fact that the German title of Unforgiven, nearly thirty years later, would be "Erbarmungslos."

Yep, I managed to secure that advance poster a couple of years ago (see page 2 of this thread).  When I purchased it I was pretty unsure of its significance, I did like it though.  Glad I bought it when I did.  O0

Thanks Mike , I was very happy to eventually get my grubby little hands on that one  ;)

Hi Mike,

Thats a Special 50th Anniversary poster from Warner Bros.  These posters are considered to be quite rare.

Shame this one has fold lines.  The majority I have seen have been rolled.

It measures 20" x 28".  The paper is a matte finish.

Printed exclusively for the US/Canadian market

If this is the one on  eBay right now?  If so,  its a good deal  ;)

I had always assumed that I had the original Swedish 1 sheet for Dirty Harry until I came across, what is the original.  And yes, I pounced on it like a ninja  ;)


Here is the re-issue -




And here is the first release 1 sheet -

Sorry about the image quality, I took the picture using my phone.





Have you ever seen a more colourful Dirty Harry poster?   It is a great poster, but I cannot help but feel that the re-issue 1 Sheet is more in keeping with the variations of the artwork used originally.

What do you guys prefer or find more dramatic?

Original or re-issue?

I think the original is terrific, very striking! A great find.

It has been quite difficult to get one of these posters for some odd reason.  Will it be having a limited release?

However, it is rather refreshing to see that the UK quad version has used a different version from the two US One Sheets.

Fortunately I stumbled upon it by accident -

UK Quad










Also recently won this for $3  :D

US Half Sheet

It is a great idea and I would love to do it, I just do not have the time unfortunately.  :(

Some of the photographs I have of the posters would need to be re-shot, in fact, It would be better if all the posters were taken professionally.  Again, a time issue.

When you think about the print run of these obscure double bills, makes you wonder, how many of these are still around  :D

Here is a great, very rare Double Bill from 1968-69 that I was very lucky to get hold of -

Excuses excuses always excuses  ;) I retire in 5 years so if you haven't done it then I'll do it for you.
