Ashley,if my poster(from Finland)is a Danish original how come it has Finnish/Swedish text along the top?

Peder, you certainly know the language better than I do. I will have to pull my examples out and look. Do you recall any of them with strictly Swedish writing, and no Finnish?

I would consider an Alamo poster "rare" if I have only seen one example, or if I have never been able to come up with one. I have only seen one example of the Belgian Todd-AO poster (England), and will gladly pay top dollar for one. I have the
general release version (which does NOT say in Todd-AO). The rarest Alamo poster (for me at least) is the 1960/61 domestic six sheet...in either Todd-AO or general release version. I am not referring to the R67 six sheet, which I already have.
I will also offer top money for the aforementioned first issue six sheet. This is even rarer than the Icelandic Todd-AO program!!!

Would you be interested in owning the movie set where it was filmed? Only top dollar, though. ;)

Rich:
Even if I had the money, I wouldn't throw it away like that. I would sooner apply my funds to restoring the film, but that isn't going to happen either.

Looks like its contrast was bumped up a bit, but I like it that way -- and that surprises me.

I like the black and white contrast also...but I'm still real fond of the high resolution color version... :)

It's always interesting to see those colorized photos, like the ones on those Italian posters. The rule of thumb seems to be "Use a lot of red". It's especially fun looking at that third poster showing the flag raising. Were those flag raisers from the Canadian contingent? Maybe that explains Travis's red coat (and accent). :lol:

That's wild! Somebody assembled this. All those actors were never on set at the same time. Also, the lighting is different on each person. It's a composite of actors from many many different scenes and then placed into the background. The background shot itself is intriguing. It is a production still from the scene where Bowie rides in. It is not a lift from the movie. Doc is in the same position on the wall as in the filmed scene, with one foot up on the wall. Dickinson is in his second position after hurrying along the top of the low barrack. He has just said, "Col. Travis, Bowie is approaching." My guess is that the background was one of those lush extremely wide angle color photos taken during the filming for publicity. It must have been shot between takes of that scene with Ken Curtis' dialogue. I have never seen it before. Kudos to whoever copy-pasted all the stars in the foreground. Must have been done recently and digitally.

Guess I couldn't fool you, Rich! The montage was created by Laurence Golbey. As many of the characters (like Harvey) do not have full
head-to-toe stills of them, Laurence had to manipulate the images and then paint in the shadows etc. The original hangs in his living
room, framed and surrounded by his autographs of the corresponding cast members.

What a cool montage and with autographs too! I´ll bet it could bring in a pretty penny if it was for sale.
