Ernest Hemingway's "Den gamle Mand og Havet" and others

Copenhagen, Denmark: Various Film Studios, 1931-1971. Collection of 37 Danish film programs for films released 1931-1971. Nearly all were printed in Copenhagen, by printers Petersen, Testman, Andreassens, Reklame, and others, upon the Danish release of international films. Most are for American films, many Walt Disney productions, and notable others include Fellini's "8 1/2" (1963), Capra's "Arsenic and Old Lace" (1944), Camus' "Black Orpheus" (1959), Siegel's "The Killers" (1964), Brannon's "King of the Rocket Men" (1949), from Chaplin's "City Lights" (1931) to Widerberg's "Joe Hill" (1971).

Slightly less lavish their French contemporaries, more expansive than Spanish heralds, and seen in several design styles, like centerfolds and gatefold and glassine wrappers (some even issued an admission ticket). These pamphlets offer the same brief film credits and synopsis but generally omit star biographies, and are illustrated with film stills and Danish renditions of original poster art, in Danish language throughout.

4.75 x 6 inches (12 x 15 cm, a few slightly larger), 4 to 6 leaves each, saddle-stitched. Very Good plus overall, with light rubbing and a few minor creases.

Complete collation details available upon request.
