They sure made a lot of different posters for the Waynamo! The two Italian ones are not bad at all. Thanks, Nef...

Poster for the 1967 rerelease of THE ALAMO. Notice how the poster designer pasted
a new, oversized head on John Wayne? I mean the Duke was larger than life, but this
is taking it to the extreme.

Spanish poster for THE ALAMO. Was there a more racier version of the film for Spanish
audiences? Just look at Flaca's dress.

It would seem so! I don´t recall Flaca wearing a torn dress showing a lot of cleavage (unfortunately). I´m afraid the male
Spanish moviegoers was in for a bit of a disappointment. :D
It´s a great poster though. All the yellow-red colors sure catches the eyes.

Interesting to see how different they are. The Yoguslavian and German one are a bit boring. Just the the title and almost nothing else. The one-colored (yellow) from the US could have used some more colors. However, it can´t be the only US poster they made, right?

Far from it! There are scadzillions. (I posted a copy of the US one I have hanging above my entertainment center in the living room on page 1 of this thread.) Mo needs to post more posters, if he's got them.

The Yugoslavian one has a cowboy on it so the audience will know it's supposed to be a Western! :D :lol:

Right! That´s a great Waynamo poster that hangs over your entertainment center. That´s one of the best, I think.

- Btw, I love the words, 'entertainment center'. It sounds so fancy (no offence intended, Ned). My own entertainment center sits below my navel. No surround sound though. But I digress... :D

the London Premier of the film at the Astoria Cinema along with the
books given out to the guests on that evening:

I also have stored away the 1967 re-release poster for 1967, sadly never
got it framed as I find the 1960 one a much better poster:

Wow! They´re really nice, both the poster and the books. I´ll bet not many of those items have survived the last 49 years. They´re probably worth a pretty penny by now.

I also have stored away the 1967 re-release poster for 1967, sadly never

Yes, the 1960 poster is much more beautiful to look at, plus it´s the ORIGINAL poster which was ACTUALLY USED at the London premiere! It´s not an un-used copy or a copy of the original, but the real deal!

Laurence Golbey presented me with the UK poster from 1960. Only thing is, in the red margin at the top, someone has written in bold felt marker SHOWING: 8:15 pm. Even though there are some things that you cannot put a dollar sign on, I wonder how much that detracts from its value?

Sadly Ned I would say yes to that, apart from the folds in the poster or pin holes
in the corner you usually find on these old posters collectors or at auction the
price drops as the buyers just want them without the writing on !!!!

The owner of the cinema where I worked had a real bad habit of having the show
times printed out then he would paste them across the top of the poster but his
favourite one was to paste one with " Last Night Tonight " right across the centre
of the poster !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It probably detracts from its value, but not a whole lot, I should think. Certainly not 50%. It depends on how bad it looks. Thank God the writing does´nt enter into the drawing itself. It would also depend on the potential buyer and how many original posters are for sale at the time and the condition those other posters are in. I should´nt think there´s too many posters out there in perfect condition. Btw, how much would a somewhat perfect poster sell for?

No, it is not. Mine is not even the size of a "half sheet" which would be about half the size of Mo's premiere "one sheet". Laurence Golbey once showed me a "six sheet" from Spain that would probably take up the entire wall of a house, if pieced together and displayed. I reckon that was for a billboard, or something.

If any of this is still confusing, I'm sure Mo will be able to explain better when he is back in town. Does anyone else out there collect posters?

Does anyone else out there collect posters?


Back in 1992 a 1960 mint condition " Alamo Poster " sold at auction to a collector
for the sum of £1,180. 00 { UK Money } the sale took place in one of the sale
houses in London, the poster had been kept rolled up from new with no creases or pin holes
in it. It was part of a private collection of 1950's and 1960's posters and if I remember
correctly the whole collection of 110 or so posters sold for around £12,000. 00. That was
a lot of money back then and posters from that era seemed to be a good investment.

I had mine valued valued just over 2 years ago for insurance purposes and the valuers told
me because of it's links to the premier night I should insure to the value of £2,000. 00 and
it was added to our house insurance policy at extra cost of course for piece of mind really,
what they told me was it was 98% doubtful it could ever be replaced anyway hence the high
value.

Hope this helps ??

Regards

Wow, almost £1200 - 17 years ago! Amazing. Good idea you have it insured, Mo!
- Is the original 1960 U.K. poster identical to the 1960 U.S. poster (size and colors)?

To my knowledge I believe the USA poster was different and not like the
UK one, I may be wrong on that as I feel sure there are friends on here
in the know ????

The reason for posters like these being high in value as it is not easy to
replace them now as so many are snapped up by collectors etc.

Take the 2004 Alamo cinema poster there is one on E Bay UK at the moment
for sale { Buy It Now } for £9. 95p a real bargain and I wonder what that will
be worth in 50 years time !!

Here is the link to it:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Cinema-Poster-ALA ... 286.c0.m14

Heres another one:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/The-Alamo-Origina ... 286.c0.m14

Heres one of the 1967 Alamo re-release poster:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/THE-ALAMO-FILM-PO ... 286.c0.m14

Hope it all helps ??

Thanks, Mo. My U.S. poster (seen in the second post on page one of this thread) was pristine when I bought it at a shop in Hollywood California, back in 1970. When I put it on display behind a plexiglass frame however, it yellowed in a few years. Is there any way of removing the yellowing without damaging the poster?
