  • Bambi Movie Poster

    Bambi

    £45.00

    “Love Comes To The Forest Folk . . . and to you, in one of the world’s greatest love stories !”

    Original British front of house full colour lobby card produced by Walt Disney for their 1982 cinematic re-release of “Bambi” which features the young playful fawn Bambi and his friend Thumper. Originally made during the middle of WW2 and following Snow White, Pinocchio and Dumbo this cartoon must have provided some relief to world weary families. Although initially disappointing box office returns the film went on to become one of the true classics of Disney studios. The film is a coming of age story about a fawn living in the forest and was the first of Disney’s cartoons to feature an all animal cast. Originally flat and unfolded (as issued) this unrestored example presents superbly with amazing vibrant colours and represents a fine example of rare and collectable original movie memorabilia for a much loved Walt Disney classic.

    Trivia: Bambi (1942) was Walt Disney‘s personal favourite of all his animated features.

  • FANTASIA Movie Poster

    FANTASIA

    £195.00

    “The ultimate in sight and sound…FANTASIA will AMAZIA !”

    “FANTASIA” is without a doubt the greatest animated film in history. While highly acclaimed and well-known today, it was not terribly popular when it was first released. Disney’s idea of “FANTASIA” was to take great pieces of music and draw animated sequences that match them. In doing so, it reverses the purpose of a movie’s score; the movie serves and matches the music, not the other way around. The lack of plot really didn’t matter though as you became immersed in a sumptuous visual and audio experience, unlike anything before or since. This is a rare opportunity to obtain one of the scarce original early re-release film posters and offered here is an original UK quad movie poster from the 1961 British release. Like all Disney campaigns of the time the advertising merchandise is of the highest quality which is fully in evidence here; stunning detailed artwork (unique to the UK release) with stone-litho printing and deep rich colours that literally ‘pop’ from the paper. Truly outstanding and one that is far better appreciated in the flesh than can ever be shown in a photograph. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored film poster presents superbly and is a fine example of rare and collectable original movie memorabilia for a much respected animated Walt Disney classic.

    Trivia: This is Steven Spielberg‘s favorite animated movie of all time.

  • North By Northwest Movie Poster

    North By Northwest

    £995.00

    “A 2000 MILE CHASE…That blazes a trail of TERROR to a gripping, spine-chilling climax !”

    Regarded (& rightly so) as one of Alfred Hitchcock’s finest movies – a true cinematic masterpiece. Offered here is a complete set of twelve (12) British from of house lobby cards for his 1959 thriller “North By Northwest”. Each full colour card features memorable imagery from the film, none more so than our highlighted card from the Film’s breathtaking climax as Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint defend themselves atop Mount Rushmore. All twelve cards contribute to make an exceptional and rarely available complete set. Presented in very good unrestored original condition this represents a fine piece of Alfred Hitchcock cinema memorabilia.

    Trivia: This movie has often been referred to as “the first James Bond film” due to its similarities with splashily colourful settings, secret agents, and an elegant, daring, wisecracking leading man opposite a sinister yet strangely charming villain with the crop duster scene inspiring the helicopter chase in From Russia with Love (1963).

  • Pandora's Box Movie Poster

    Pandora’s Box

    £195.00

    “The Greek gods created a woman – Pandora. She was beautiful and charming and versed in the art of flattery. But the gods also gave her a box containing all the evils of the world. The heedless woman opened the box, and all evil was loosed upon us.”

    One of the great silent films, Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s “Pandora’s Box” is renowned for its sensational storyline, sparkling Weimar-period setting and the legendary, lead performance from its iconic star Louise Brooks who is featured prominently on the poster imagery. As a general rule BFI re-release posters are incredibly scarce due to limited print runs and distribution, being shown in literally a handful of independent and ‘art-house’ cinemas with the updated imagery often superior to many of the original release designs. The rolled (as issued) UK quad offered here is from the 2020 digital restoration BFI release and displays to excellent effect with beautiful imagery and design; lovely bright bold colours. A fantastic looking item and a fine piece of cinema memorabilia for a true classic of the silent era.

    Trivia: Despite being replaced by Louise Brooks at the last minute for the role of Lulu in Pandora’s Box (1929), Marlene Dietrich managed to snag another coveted role. Her removal from “Pandora’s Box” freed her up to play one of her most iconic roles, Lola Lola in Josef von Sternberg‘s The Blue Angel (1930).
