That EAGLES OVER LONDON is excellent, Matt.  Love the others, too.
Since I have so few daybills and this one just arrived, I should post it for posterity in this genre thread.

It is, isn't it?
I have Ves to thank for that one.
It is based on the American one-sheet which was illustrated by Zoe Mozert, a premiere pin-up artist of her day.



She did several movie posters, including her most famous - Jane Russell in The Outlaw.

The US pinup art of Mozert's is great... and the aussie artist did a really fine job in trying to keep and maintain the same look and feel.

Just packing a (hand) delivery and thought I would share this.
People usually say Daybills are 13"x30"

While this was true for much of their history, and as we know early ones much larger. post 80's there is all sorts of sizes, and dont worry unlike US -posters, this isnt a red flag.

3 Horror Daybills, 3 sizes. All originals

The Sandpiper (1965), with Taylor and Burton.

Really nice hand litho art on this, too, imo.

Leave it to the Aussie artists to be the ones to disfigure MM and hit her with the major ugly stick....   spew

She almost has that Chas Laughton-Hunchback eye thing going on.  ;D

But when one considers what was done to Godzilla, one time, too, MM looks like a beauty queen, in comparison.   rofl1

Hello,

I’m posting this message here in hopes that folks are still checking up on the new posts. I’m looking for help finding an Australian Daybill Teaser poster. I’ve also posted this message on the “Wanted” board but it was recommended to me to post my message here in an Australian-specific thread as I was looking for an Australian poster. I hope there are some folks still out there as the last post to this board was in 2018! Here goes…

***

Desperately seeking a 1963 “Dementia 13” aka “The Haunted and the Hunted” Australian Daybill Teaser poster measuring: 13.5” x 30”. This unusual daybill is meant for horizontal display as opposed to the ordinary vertical display. Do you know where I can find one/have a lead on one that’s for sale? If so, please PM me right away, TVM!

I have been trying to find a decent copy of this poster for quite some time now. It’s atop my all-time favorite film posters that I don’t (yet) own. It’s eluded me, which is why I’m reaching out to you kind folks here. About once a year a copy makes it to auction at eMoviePosters.com with the last one being June 2021. That copy sold beyond my means as it went for more than 3.5x it did in 2020 (the condition was better).

“Dementia 13”  is a horror film that was produced by Roger Corman and was one of the first films Francis Ford Coppola, credited as Francis Coppola, directed. Not sure what those green gremlin-like eyes have to do with the film (I have watched it) but they’re pretty damn cool looking and I really want to add them to my exclusive (sounds better than small, right?) collection of vintage film posters.



There’s one for sale online at a vintage movie poster shop but it’s a bit pricey, especially because it has red marker/ink bleed-through in the margin from writing on the poster’s rear. The shop claims that the bleeding defect can be rectified with a linen backing—which they’ll gladly do for an additional fee—but I’m not sure. Maybe it can—I’m still learning. But my gut is telling me that structurally strengthening and smoothing out the folds and creases, both done from the reverse, wouldn’t rectify red ink that has saturated through the back of the poster to it's front? But what do I know :-\  Am I wrong, can a linen backing help bleeds?

I really hope *fingers-crossed* to hear from a whole bunch of you with information or potential leads. Thanks so very much in advance!

During the process of linen backing, the restorer would try to sand off as much as possible of the ink on the rear. From there, any ink left runs the risk of growing/spreading further when the paper gets wet from washing, adding the wheat paste, or both. Then the restorer would, once dry, try to cover any ink with paint or pencil
