ANZIO (1968) d. Edward Dmytryk



Art by Frank McCarthy.  The detail area of the portraits is, of course, large itself.



MovieArt Austin has this 24 sheet available on our website.

I bought this poster from Todd Feiertag and years later I sold it to AMPAS.  I'm sure you will be able to see this soon at the Academy's Museum in Los Angeles.  Simply one of the greatest 24 sheets I have ever known.

You should be afraid.  Very afraid.



This 24 sheet will be auctioned by Heritage at the end of this month.  Iconic.  Great movie.

AUDIE MURPHY

We've discovered we have this poster.  Don't have a photo of it yet, but here is a scan from the pressbook, robbed from the internet.  So this image is,
admittedly, poor.

THE QUIET AMERICAN (1958)  24 sheet poster d. Joseph L. Mankiewicz.  The poster is probably in color.   This pressbook was duotone as many of them are.




See my dealer post if you want more information.

Hi Kirby,

Have you pulled this one out from the vault yet to take a look at it (or one of the sections) to see if it is, in fact, all in color?

Looking forward to whenever you might be able to take some snaps of the poster itself.  :)

I have looked at the panels - one of two of them - and the poster is in color.  I still have this poster.

Best,
Kirby McDaniel

Looks to be in unused condition, too. The colors look vibrant and bright.

Thanks for posting the pic, Kirby.

It was never used, but it is moderately brittle and needs TLC.

Here is one that we sold years ago - to a Casino!  Don't ask me why they wanted it.  But it is pretty special, deriving from that period when Hughes controlled RKO.  I hope I didn't post this already.  Who knows?

Out of curiosity do you recall how much you sold it for?  A range will do if you dont want to provide an exact number... ;D

Yes, it was sold as part of a package of nine 24-sheets which sold for $12,945.00.  The year was 1997.  The poster was evaluated by us at that time at $2500.00.

Hi,

There are some absolutely beautiful posters in this thread. Thank you all for sharing : )

I am curious though, so I have a few basic questions...
(My apologies if these questions have been answered already. I tried searching the forum but could not find anything).

1.) How big, (approximately), in feet, is a 24 sheet?

2.) Are all 24-sheets folded the same/come in the same amount of panels? I ask because some of the posts I've seen on this thread you can really see a lot of fold lines on some of the posters. But then there are other 24 sheets where the fold lines are barely noticeable. So I just thought maybe different companies and/or different era's, folded differently. (Or maybe it's just the lighting of the photo?)

3.) If I ever bought a 24 sheet, should I assume it will have a lot of tape marks or pin holes throughout the back of it? If not, if someone could please enlighten me I would appreciate it- I bring this up because I'm trying to visualize how a movie theater, (past or present), displays a 24 sheet so beautifully that it looks so seamless. And I can't  : (


Thanks,
Michael

24 sheets are usually, but not always, made up of four columns - an A,B,C and D column and 3 rows of panels.  A1, B2, C3, D1 etc. etc.  So, usually there are twelve separate panels which are joined together to make 9x20 foot poster.  Of course there are variances over the years.  Earlier 24 sheets might have different configurations and sometimes the posters were printed in a different format.  But in my experience the aforementioned scheme is the usual case and one that was used for many 24 sheets during the 50s and 60s.  But like everything else in movie posters there is the exception that proves the rule.  Most 24 sheets that are available for sale as a collectible today were never used.  The normal drill for 24 sheet display was to paste the 24 sheet to a billboard panel.  When the advertising campaign was over, the advertising company would sell the space to another advertiser and that 24 sheet was simply pasted over the existing one.  Periodically all this would be scraped off the billboard panel and the whole process would start over again.  One reason why the attrition rate for 24 sheets is as high as it is is that after the very first first run of a film, the economic model to use a 24 sheet for commercial gain was done.  After the first run of the picture, there would be little use for a 24 sheet.  And so one can conclude without too much doubt that these posters were thrown out by the exchanges.  They took up room and they were never going to be used again.  Fortunately some have escaped that fate.  MovieArt has probably the most U.S. 24 sheets of any dealer. Many of the images of 24 sheets that you have seen at Heritage, for example, have been put together in photoshop for a seamless look.  Linen-backing a 24 sheet would attempt to capture that seamlessness.  Emovieposter photographs the whole poster much as they do their other posters and thus you can see the native folds more easily.   Kirby McDaniel  MovieArt Austin

Kirby,
Have you ever had a Godzilla (1956) 24-sheet?
I found one listed for sale in a catalog from an Oklahoma dealer in the early 70s, but have never been able to find out if it's still around or not.
