A lot of very nice INSERTS, but the MUMMY and CAT AND THE CANERY 3 sheets are both gorgeous!

I hope theater lobby displays are okay for this thread. Here's one for The Mummy.

"Dementia 13", 1963 - This movie was released in Spain, Ireland and the UK (and by extension Australia) as "The Haunted and the Hunted".

Australia has a poster similar to our 14" x 36" "Insert".  They have a 13" x 30" "Daybill".  Their Daybills  are normally designed vertically just like our slightly larger Inserts.

This highly unusual horizontal Daybill has always appealed to me:


                                                           (Click on picture for larger image.)

Seems unnecessary to advise that the picture being advertised might not be perfect for small tots.  (Reminds me of Fluffy peering out from his trunk.)

 ;)  ;D


Yeah, yeah - I know.

But I tried to win make back my fellow members with a warm, touch-feely review of my first viewing of "The Legend of Boggy Creek" in the "last movie you watched' thread.  (That should make me some friends.)

So are some vintage Barnum & Bailey billboards.  But, this is the wrong damned place!
