I bought them all at once!!! Very expensive, but what the hell, it's my favourite movie!!!!
/D


Like some film trailers, I think some of these lobby cards give away too much of the story to a first-time viewer.  I don't klike to know what's going to happen.  For example, when I first saw GBU in '68, I hadn't seen the trailer (no TV advertisements for it) which showed a three-way gunfight, etc.  And I wouldn't have wanted to see young Harmonica holding up his brother, or Frank being shot by Harmonica either before seeing "West" in 1969..

Congrats, I never saw all five Italian character posters at once. I have three but never saw the CHEYENNE style before...

I managed to get so far the 2-foglio first release and the pop art RR 2-foglio from 1972.
Also I have 7 LC's so far (photobusta), 5 regular size ones and two big ones (soggettos). I'd love
to know how many the complete set includes. At least 5 big ones and 8-12 'small' ones. Only the golden
ones are first release, the RR set of 6 or 8 from the 70's includes the same images but reprinted 'yellow'
instead and 'gold'.

A set of 5 italian posters (140x200 cm / 2-sheet)









These are easily the best OUATITW posters, beautiful. I need to buy the Cardinale and Robards versions at least.

Here's more to look at:
From Germany the first release 1-sh (many re-issues around, you can only judge them when you see them in front of you),
rare complete set of 18 LC's (only 12 were reprinted / used in the 70's early 80's) and one scarce
jumbo LC.

East German poster & two LC'S:

What amazes me about the whole business is that "someone" decides that certain photos/drawings for posters and cards, or film titles should be "different" for different countries.

Actually as a collector that's exactly what most of us love and appreciate: until the one-artwork-for-the-whole-world attitude started
in the late 70's, the guys in charge for promo in their country had to know their audience well (and that includes the mentality of the people).
For ex. the Japanese started with photographic artwork very very early, they never cared for painted artwork. In Germany and Italy emotions were the thing to transport with a poster. After the war people wanted big feelings, love & exotic action. Therefore a lot of these paintings from those golden poster years are beautifully done. The German tradition of having huge LC-sets came from the 1920's and 1930's. They used 'real' photos handtinted and glossy until the late 60's. With up the 60 cards for one film! The realism of the late 60's and 70's changed that. Also it became to expensive.
Also the lobbies are very different in each country. Over here we had big walls and huge showcases - a lot of room the create a nice decoration.
In the US and the UK they very often had these fixed 'boxes' to insert and display single LC's. The decoration always looked the same - just the images changed.

I don't know anout the financial situation in France in those years, but I think there wasn't too much money around. Very often they printed b/w LC's for color films even in mid-60's (FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE for instance). A few sets were printed in color - but only for Paris I understand.
In Italy emotions are BIG. Therefore the posters and LC's are the biggest in the world! My theory Smiley.

In the US... well I don't know. Sometimes very good stuff, sometimes really awful. Like a lot of the Italian Western releases. They distributed without care and love for the job. B/w LC's, and strange cheap-looking posters. No wonder lots of these films were considered too be C-grade trash or whatever.
And by now this all is a thing of the past - promo is a thing for the net, TV and what have you. Showcases are boring by now. One design must do the job. Okay, the japanese still deliver some 'extra' design. (Great stuff)

I finally got the Italian OUATITW first release poster !

(Condition yesterday and today, after four hours of restoration)



To make my week complete, I got my last missing photobusta. At least I think,
sets of 12 were common in Italy, I have 7 small ones and 5 big ones. Anybody
ever has some information regarding more Italian lobby cards, please let me know..

So here's the complete first release set Smiley
