EXCEPTIONALLY RARE Original Australian Daybill Movie poster approximately 13" x 27" folded as issued, very good - fine condtion, minor edge and fold wear (see enlarged photo for condition).
NOTE: This daybill measures 27" in length rather than the usual 30". The printer's name W.E.Smith, appears at the bottom of the poster. I believe that at the time of printing, some changes were required to the original artwork for Australian posters. Rather than create entirely new artwork, it was easier to remove the bottom three inches from the art at time of printing.
If these posters had been trimmed later after printing, the printers name would not appear on the poster. The film did have some censorship issues and that could be a factor in removing the lower 3 inches but it is likely that we will never really know the answer.
Another explanation could be that the film was originally intended to have been shown in 3D in Australia but that didnt happen.
The interesting thing is that virtually no original Australian posters have turned up on Miss Sadie Thompson.
