Beyond the Door Spanish poster question?
« on: April 28, 2023, 05:28:48 PM »
Not sure where to put this thread. But, question on this poster I just got.
Itís Beyond The Door Spanish poster.
However, I didnít think anything of it, and thought that title was part of the poster. Upon inspection, itís not.  Doh.gif
1) is this like a snipe they did? Or any idea why they would put this title on it? Even the La Hija De is actually a cutout and pasted onÖ the black was painted, and the letters were painted on under it.
2) has anyone seen another copy, that I can get if this one is now considered damaged?
Opinions?

Yes you can.

I've done it once, years ago, on this extremely rare Bardot poster.  I had never seen this poster before, and never after for that matter.  I bought it and noticed that a title had been painted on top of the original title.  The French title was La lumiŤre d'en Face (translates to The light across the street), a classic Bardot movie now, but a very small release back in 1954.  It was renamed "Il Tuo Corpo Brucia" for the Italian market (no idea why) until these idiots realized that another movie with the same title was coming out.  Since they had no money to reprint the poster, they hand painted a new title which was much closer to the original French title.

I sent the poster to linenbacking (it was a one of a kind and could not be purchased again, very important to me if you're going to linenback something) and found out about the original title still underneath.  A little magic from the restorers, and voila!

That poster looks good T!
I knew about the Italian snipes, and by backer has removed them. Iím just curious on the Spanish one, especially with all that painted over. But again, I donít know how rare this one is as itís a 70s title

You understand that mine is not a snipe, right?  I thought I was clear.  It was painted on and the paint was professionally removed.  It is not a cheap endeavor, so you have to figure out if your posters is worth it.  I know nothing about your title, so I can't help you on its value.

I had a snipe removed once on a French poster for The Skull (1965) to reveal the original title underneath: this is because when it was released in France, promotional materials had to be changed at the last minute by pasting a new title, Le cr‚ne malťfique ("The Evil Skull"), over the original French title Les Forfaits du Marquis de Sade ("Infamies of the Marquis de Sade") on posters and lobby cards, after legal action by the present-day Sade family.  However, there was no paint involved in this particular instance, as the new title was printed on the snipe that was then glued to the old one.  Depending on the type of paint that was used here, it might be more difficult to remove, but I would think a good restorer should be able to.

I believe that is not a spanish poster, my friend. Can't see the second image you uploaded to look what language the upper text is in. Might be an italian export poster (Bruce has auctioned a few) used in spanish territory (and that would be the reason of the repainted title).
The title used in Spain was "Poder malefico" and the poster has completely different art by Jano

Might be. At this point, I am lost. The title in yours is "La hija de Satanas" (Satan's daughter), but in Argentina the film was called "El hijo de Satanas" (Satan's son)

I could get it for you, but I'd rather wait for an untrimmed one to appear. All white borders are missing
