I actually found this crazy "Atomic" Movie Orgy poster a few months back at an antique store in Oxford, MS.  I've seen something similar to this type of show which blends classic movie/TV clips on the big screen along with looney live stage antics, music, and a light/special effects show along with scripted and improvised host(s) interaction with the audience. The Movie Orgy show could last many, many hours and go late into the night and early morning. You know it had to be good if Schlitz beer was the host! I wonder sometimes if events like the Movie Orgy and its progeny led to Mystery Science Theatre 3000, Rocky Horror live events etc. Then again on a school trip, I remember seeing Humanoids from the Deep in the early 1980s at an old theatre near Time Square in NYC and laughed so hard at the incredible audience call back and screaming out wildly during the movie. At one point, a guy hollered out "Get Richard Pryor up there, he'll kill that *&*%$!#*!!" Man, that sure was fun for a boy from middle America.  I mentioned this poster in Monster's thread and here it is!  Okie

Interesting poster, Okie.  Odd that they include a pic from 1935's Mad Love for something advertising "the wonderful world of the 1950s reborn!", lol.

I've been on an Italian poster kick lately, and here are some recent acquisitions.  First off, 3 Two-Fogli: Invisible Terror, an obscure German sci-fi film from 1962, The House that Screamed (1969), a pretty nifty Spanish photo-slasher, and Hammer's lurid Scars of Dracula (1970).  I also picked up 2 Four-Fogli: the baroque Vincent Price vehicle The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971), and Gangs of Honk Kong (1973) - this one I know nothing about, but how could I resist such a wacky image?

I also got this French 47x63 for the original Cape Fear, a true classic.

Thank you Okie!

I love that Spanish Dracula.  I have been looking for the first release British quad for years, to no avail so far.  Hopefully one day I will find it.

That Text only is first release, and affordable.  The last full artwork 58 Dracula Quad I saw, sold for £25K so not cheap..

Hi Timeless, How does your text Dracula look with a blacklight? I'd sure like to see that!  Very cool.  Okie

That looks great Paul!  I have several Hammer quads with Day-Glo graphics, but since I don't have a black light I have never seen how they look under it.  I really should give it a try some day...

Love it. Must be cool to be in the dark in that room and to see them all lighting up like that.

cool
had no idea what blacklight was - sounds like an oxymoron - but google say it's uv light so i get it now
is this how these posters would have been displayed in 5ts/6ts?
i am guessing that some of the text on previous dracula quad - not paul waines - was painted over?

Oddly, as far as I know, these posters were never displayed this way, which is such a shame. I think they missed a trick..
