Wow, this thread is so impressive. Larger posters give me anxiety but my God are they magnificent. :o

If I were braver this would be a must-have. My favourite of all the art for the film.

Yes, that came out of Canada in the eighties.  It is on our site, I believe.  My photo of it not the best.  Colors are great.

Hope you aren't saying you've been trying to sell this for 30 years...

I think it's a really nice photo, Kirby. It shows off the colors and art detail really well.

And how awesome that this copy has NOT been backed, so far. It's a killer poster, for sure.  thumbsup.gif

And three 6 sheet images, also from the pressbooks, from the same Lon Chaney Sr -Tod Browning flickers I posted the 24 sh images of. Again, Im sure these were stunning in color.

WHERE EAST IS EAST (1929), WEST OF ZANZIBAR (1928), and THE UNKNOWN (1927)

I don't wanna say that I have this because, well, you know that would imply that it's FOR SALE!

So heartbreaking.  crying
I too, am a willing and able buyer for an unbacked copy - they could have had two ready buyers for that piece just a few days ago.

:) :) :)  This was a 4x6 snap I took in my living room in the mid-eighties!  Can you believe this?  I wish I had this poster now.  I've had two of them in my day.

I don't think we have the customer's name any longer.  That was 1989.  !!

Here is another VERTIGO six sheet I had.   We were pinning it to the wall in my shop.  This is circa 1987.  I DON'T have this poster.

I also had the poster several times, "back in the day", whatever that means.  Believe it or not, there was a time when the conventional wisdom held that collectors would not touch a six sheet.  Wrong!  They did.  And MovieArt prospered because of that.  Many great titles had six sheets just lying around out there.  Six sheets we handled:  CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, CASABLANCA (God I wish I had held on to that one!),  ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS, SAINT JOAN, THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH, SHE DONE HIM WRONG, THUNDERBALL, VERTIGO, VIVA LAS VEGAS, YANKEE DOODLE DANDY, YELLOW SUBMARINE, PENNY SERENADE, AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, THE PRINCE AND THE SHOWGIRL, MY DARLING CLEMENTINE, THE SPIDER WOMAN STRIKES BACK, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, THE WILD BUNCH, YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE, GOLDFINGER (only had this once, that is rare), GIANT, CLEOPATRA (1963), HITLER'S CHILDREN, CAMELOT (with Bob Peak art, not the more common one), THE KING AND I, all the Beatles titles, THE GHOST OF SLUMBER MOUNTAIN, AUNTIE MAME, THE QUIET MAN, BLUE HAWAII, and many, many more. 

This burst of boasting is now concluded.  :)
