Sure, you can spend a lot of money buying a beautiful poster.  Though, does it really get any better than this: Karloff by Freulich.  Okie

The movie Supernatural was released this month on April 21, 1933.  It's a pre-code horror film from Paramount that's definitely worth watching.  This original release photo of a disturbed/possessed Carole Lombard really jumped out at me in one of Bruce's recent auctions.  It's still in "pay and hold", though I wanted to go ahead and share as the movie's anniversary is in a few days. The photographer is not stamped on the back.  What are your thoughts on who might have taken this photo?  My best, Okie

That's a stunner for sure, Okie. A face to die for. Congrats!

Great pic, Okie!  I never watched Supernatural but always wanted to.  I should check out if it's available on streaming somewhere.

Thanks for letting me know you like this still of Lombard as well, Chris and Antoine!  I sure enjoy vintage photo surprises like this. Now, I wish I knew the photographer.  It seems to me early Paramount stills you would think would have a photographer credit on the back often do not. Okie

Carole Lombard has always had a special place in my heart, so that still really resonates with me. What a great image.

Been a while since I posted. Haven't had much to post due to life circumstances. Recently picked these three up though.

Been looking for a nice example of this one at a reasonable price. Got this one from Heritage a week ago. The far tougher advance version and I got it at the price of the regular poster. Very happy with it.



These next two I picked up for likely resale. From the estate of Bud Abbott, his personal bound scripts for Buck Privates and Abbott And Costello Meet The Killer Boris Karloff.

Nice!  I was going to buy it but I can never remember to pre-bid at Heritage at 7:59PM PST on Sunday.  Forgot last night, forgot for the last 6 weeks, even though I check a few hours before and I always have a dozen items on my list.  I get busy with other things, and then it's 8:20.  It was a steal, for sure.

Very cool scripts from a comedy master, Ratzkywatzky!  Did Bud Abbott write notes inside the scripts?  Okie

Dracula! 1931! Spanish Renfield, Pablo Alvarez Rubio, inscribed and signed original still!  I'm so happy to have this still that I'm having trouble controlling my exclamation points!!! In his inscription, Rubio mentions both the magazine to which this still was dedicated and the movie Dracula, too! I'm so excited this still made it through time. According to multiple sources, Spanish Dracula was released this month in New York City on April 24, 1931, 89 years ago this Friday. Looks like there was also a premiere in Havana, Cuba, on March 11, 1931. I really enjoyed Rubio's Renfield and was impressed with his skill in the role.  What did you guys think? Also, I included an image from the magazine Films Selectos (fortunately, the magazine was included with the still) from June 11, 1932, with an article on Rubio and an image of this signed still. I don't know what happened these last few months with me and finding stills I couldn't resist. Holy Moly!  Okie

Here are the two I got in Bruce's Tuesday major auction.  I really, really like the movie The Black Swan and thought this 3 sheet had a fantastic stone litho swashbuckling image! I admit I have never seen The Healer, though the beauty of the stone litho of Karen Morley sold me right away.  What did you all perhaps get? Okie

These are 2 stunning pickups, Okie!  Congrats!

I didn't buy anything in that auction because everything was linenbacked.  Otherwise, I would have made a bid for Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman.  I would also have bid on The Big Clock, as I love that movie and recently read the book on which it was based. As a side note, this is something that I've lately been doing to occupy myself during confinement due to Covid19: I started reading books that were the inspiration for some of my favorite films, such as Night of the Hunter, In a Lonely Place, Double Indemnity, The Postman Always Rings Twice, Rebecca, Psycho, Village of the Damned, etc... It's been really fun!

Great idea and great list to get started with! I can also recommend Red Harvest (1929) by Dashiell Hammett, which inspired a great many films. I went on a Hammett and Chandler binge a while back and do not regret it.

Antoine: The Big Clock poster was pretty darn cool!  Yeah, reading the books for movies is a great idea, though I have to separate them in my mind as they can be so wildly different from each other.  Also, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler (Jim Thompson, too) are such fun authors to read regardless of movie adaptation quality, eh?!  Linen doesn't bother me on older posters, large posters, and very rare posters.

Matt: I'm so happy you got The Avenging Angel! I really think the design is superb.  I was very tempted on it as well. 

Okie

Matt, I did read Red Harvest several years ago, back when I was on a Dashiell Hammett kick and read The Maltese Falcon, The Thin Man and The Dain Curse, all of which are excellent and were adapted into great movies except for the last one which was made into a TV series.  I also went on a Chandler binge over a decade ago and read every single one of his Philip Marlowe novels, which I greatly enjoyed.
