Finally got this on the wall. This is a rare, U.S. 30x40 one sheet poster for Asylum



30x40 posters were used until about 1980. They were printed on card stock and shipped rolled to theaters. There were not as many of these as compared to a typical one sheet poster making them hard to find.

I found these weird window cards the other day and had to grab them. They were produced by Capital Film & Radio in Richmond. This was a small film distribution company back in the 60's & 70's that supplied films for theaters in rural areas of W.V. and the Carolinas. They also printed these "Coming Attraction" window cards to be displayed in metal frames at the theaters. These are roughly 5"x14" and really cool.

Gotta love that HOD stars Lon Chaney as Dracula (?!?!); at least they didn't advertise it as starring Bela Lugosi  ;D

They almost do, with that drawing of Lugosi (with Dracula's trademark bottle of poison and bloody knife).

You know that Vampires have to have their options for dispatching a victim.

Man...That poster doesn't look like the Dracula vs. Frankenstein I saw!

What? You mean there were no "Love Tramps" being seduced by creatures from the grave?

The thought is that this is a 2nd release poster issued maybe late 1971 early 1972 after the initial run of the film flopped. This poster tries to gin up interest by "sexing it up".

  Next week is the printshow, and I am busily cleaning up posters to get printed out; I thought I would give a bit of a sneak peek of some of the items I am working on. Basically, I try to find the cleanest, highest resolution copy of the poster I am interested in. I not only attempt to clean up any creases or imperfections in the artwork, I usually kick up the color saturation and contrast, as well. Because many of these posterís color schemes are a bit limited, I will sometimes expand them a bit; or modify the color scheme, altogether. I realize that this may seem like heresy to some purists, but I am making these specifically for myself and not others. Most people arenít really aware of how much of an overhaul these posters actually get, so I decided to include a side-by-side comparison of my work.
