Another one of my favorites. He was very active for about 30 years, starting in 1954. BACK TO BATAAN was his first poster.

I really like his style. And a broad range of genres, too.

Yes. everybody loves it. I have only this RR left, 'sold the 1st release to an UK gallery years ago :(.
 It IS great, but I think Wendt (Nun Story) and even Peltzer painted her face better on other posters...

I was going to ask if that was the RR or not. Thanks for that info.

Mike, did most German poster artists sign their work?

- the 1st release has the Paramount logo of course, and a different not-so-modern font for the title...
- yes, I estimate 80-90% of the German posters pre-70s are signed. Well, good ol' Peltzer sometimes did not :).

Love the image of Doris Day, as well, on The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Sehr gut!!

I guess I have one SPARTACUS left in my ebay-shop (Juniormike is my eBay name).
Without too much patriotism I always thought that German paper was hanging around at
the top for many decades (not all titles of course). My #1 was always Italia, not all titles either of course.
I also love certain Quads, Japan & Belgium of course. Spain & Thailand. Some French. Some 1-sheet's (but most
have way too much text and white space on them, for my taste anyway).

But I think when it comes to lobby cards Germany was really #1 in the 50s / 60s. Huge wonderful
sets up to 30, 40, 50 cards! And no cheap prints either, they were expensive to produce. After
the war cinema was huge here and distributors had the money to pay their poster artists and to
produce those glossy lc-sets (photographic photo stock, hand-tinted, sealed...)

Great artist, Peckinpah!  I noticed they all appear to be full bleed printing.  Do you know why that might have been preferred in Germany?  Forgive me if you have already talked about this in another thread.

Well, not ALL are full bleed...
But I'm certainly glad they already  did it even back then. White frames / border area's are so old-school. And a waste of space as well. The first book I wrote I couldn't persuade the publishers the go with full bleed. The second one I insisted and it looks so much more modern and so much better, the images are bigger to of course... In fact my problem with so many US 1-sheets always were all those white areas all over the place and so much text all over the place - while the artwork should dominate! Peltzer certainly felt the same way: he almost always used up all the space of the posters for his paintings...
