Usually love Italian posters, but I thought this was a humorous misstep by Martinati:




The US OS being iconic and all:




Yikes!  Everyone has an off day:)

And a RARE misstep, I might add.  He is the master:)  And he totally redeems himself with this masterpiece:

I like the Martinati. Davis smiling and a gentler looking Paul Muni convey another feeling and emotion, IMO, plus he didnt just copy the US artwork verbatim.

I'll take it!   Grin

Yeah, I can see that, but have you seen the movie?  The US OS so perfectly represents Davis' character!  The Italian is kind of off-putting to me.
It's a deal, you take the Italian, I will take the US OS Wink

Anyone know much about Italian 1-Sheets (which are basically the size of US 1-Sheets)?  I rarely see anyone posting them and I don't see too many for sale.  Were they printed in lower quantity than the normal sizes?

You mean 1 Foglio (28" x 39") which is half the size of the poster shown above by harry which is a 2 Fogli (1 panel: 39" x 55")?

Nah, don't know sorry

As far as I know italian 1sheet ( we call it "soggettone") was an integral part of a lobby cards set (in italian "set di fotobuste").
For each movie there usually were: one 4fogli, one 2fogli ( sometimes 2, A and B), one locandina and a set of fotobuste. The set was made up of 4/6/8  lobby cards and 1 ( sometimes 2 ) soggettone.
It was usually 2times folded to fit in the envelope containing the lobby cards (wich were folded in half).

About the print run I don't know.. surely we see a few on the market.

Very good question and I have also wondered that myself. I have been trying to get hold of several 1F rather than 2 or 4f BUT it seems that there are harder to get ..

Great info. Thanks for sharing.  I've been able to pick up a couple 1F's this year and they really have some stellar artwork, just started wondering why I didn't see them as much.

Much lower quantities for italy 1shs it seems , I guess they thought bustas were more important to print in large quantities.

Outside of Italy there is a lot of confusion when it comes to Italian '1-sh' posters. For us non-italians, 1-sheets are posters.  Since the Italian 1-sheet posters are called '2-foglio', many dealers and collectors think that the 'soggetone' is a '1-sheet' poster because it has that (approx.) US 1-sheet poster size. Of course it is not, it is a lobby card and part of the lobby card set - not a poster. Italian posters of '1-sheet' size just do not exist (pre-war maybe ? I'm not an expert on stuff printed before the 50s).
Not all 'photobusta' sets include 'soggetones'. It is very hard to find Italian pressbooks as reference, so it's not easy to know
when an Italian set is complete. The envelope often states the content of the sets though. The smallest set I have is EASY RIDER 70s re-release (set of 4), the one from 1969 had 10 bustas (no soggetone as far as I know). WILD BUNCH for instance is a set of 12 (no soggetone either). And ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST for instance is a special case: Set of 12 incl. 7 regular size bustas + 5 soggetone!
Collecting Italia is an adventure. And very worthwhile, beautiful stuff...
