Thanks, Hicks and Tob!  This reunion, all told, took about two years to complete. Yes, it has been nicely satisfying.  I'm still happily shocked the stars aligned.  Fingers crossed for those still on the hunt!  Okie

As a long time dealer, I can attest to the difficulty of finding missing pieces.  It just doesn't happen that often.  I recently was looking for two missing panels to a 24 sheet, THOSE MAGNIFICENT MENT IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES, a poster with great art by Ronald Searle.  No luck.  So congrats!

Thanks, Kirby!  I hear you. There were so few 24 sheets made that finding the exact pieces needed is much more than a needle in the haystack. Still, here's hoping for someday!  Okie

Thank you, Chris! Even since I was a kid, I've enjoyed the hunt as much as the finale with collecting.  My favorites are still the road trips - much too far between nowadays - searching odd junk shops, flea markets, and sometimes small town antique stores. I love that old paper smell that hits you when you walk in and you know you are in the right place. Is it like that in Canada, Chris?  Okie

Unfortunately no :(.  All you might find would be glossy modern paper if anything at all.  Not sure why it is like that up here as clearly some very significant theatre inventories have been found in Canada.  Maybe because there were less poster exchanges or the ones in Canada didnít sell gradually to the public?

Congrats Okie, this 3-sheet looks great now that you've reunited the 2 pieces together.  What a satisfying feeling it must be after all this time searching for the missing top half!

This is the 24-sheet for THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES for which I was lacking two panels.  Fortunately I sold the incomplete poster for a modest amount.  Now I'd like to find another example - complete, of course.  Two panels (upper left) were missing.   I filled in those for the purposes of this photo from an existing image of another poster.  This poster has art by the British satirical artist Ronald Searle.

Thanks, Antoine!  It was sure an exciting moment when I realized it was actually going to happen. When it makes sense again, I'm looking forward to displaying it for show and tell at a couple of conventions.  Okie

I was hoping you might find the odd movie poster/paper in small towns, Chris.  Window cards and counter standees come to mind as they may have been displayed all around towns.  I'll keep my fingers crossed you make a discovery one day! A Creature from the Black Lagoon partial three sheet was found in an antique store not long ago in the US.   Okie

Wow, congratulations Okie, it looks amazing.

Now if you could only find My Frankensteins head, I posted a pic before, but it seems to have gone missing, so...

Paul has there ever been an unofficial count of how many headless Frankies there are?
I know two of them (at least) have had recreation heads put on, and it seems I remember Bruce talking about a few other headless ones wandering around, but it may have been those with the new heads to which he was referring.

As far as I know, Sean, there's only the three. A guy I know had a head put on, and sold it, theres mine and one a lady dealer in London has.

Not sure where Bruce got his numbers, but I was told it was only the 3 out of that find.

I'd love to find the two Quad size bits of this UK 12 sheet too.

Same find, Sean, but only two of these turned up.

Nice. It's been a few years since I saw it in person, but the colors are quite different from the US 6-sheet.
