Joan of Arc (1948) - (Ingrid Bergman) Argentine poster

Joan of Arc (1948) - (Ingrid Bergman) Argentine one-sheet

This is a 29" x 43" Argentine one-sheet poster for the 1948 Victor Fleming film Joan of Arc based on the Broadway play Joan of Lorraine by Maxwell Anderson, screenplay by Maxwell Anderson and Andrew Solt and starring Ingrid Bergman as Joan of Arc. This film was considered by some to be the beginning of a low period in Bergman's career partly because of negative publicity surrounding an affair she was having at the time with Italian director Roberto Rossellini, although both she and Jose Ferrer (who played the role of Charles VII) received academy award nominations and the film has become an enduring classic. This poster was made to promote the first release by RKO in November 1948 but the film has undergone many revisions since them. The 2004 DVD release is the restored complete version. Plot summary: The film gives a straightforward account of the life Joan of Arc, a 14-year-old illiterate farm girl who in the 15th Century told the court of France she had been divinely called to save the country by leading the French army taking Orleans back from the English; Joan was eventually burned at the stake in Rouen by the English and the Burgundians on charges of witchcraft, heresy and dressing like a man.

Jesus (1979) - (Brian Deacon) US one-sheet

Jesus (1979) - (Brian Deacon) US one-sheet

This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet poster for the original 1979 John Krish and Peter Sykes film Jesus AKA The Jesus Film based primarily on the Biblical Gospel of Luke with screenplay by Barnet Bain and starring Brian Deacon as Jesus. Synopsis: According to Wikipedia, the Gospel of Luke was chosen for this film because it is considered the most complete of the Biblical gospels, and an early decision was made by the film's producers that the film would be based on only one gospel. The film's storyline closely follows the version of Luke found in The Good News Bible and makes a point of not adding embellishments, although cinematic smoke and mirrors such as the use of echo effects during important spoken segments and various halos and hazes at strategic moments are apparently OK. There is also a concluding exhortation and invitation to convert that does not come from the book of Luke. The film was made in various parts of the Middle East using Israeli actors. Producer John Heyman dubbed over all the actor voices except the voice of Brian Deacon because he thought they were too high. The Warner Brothers 1979 commercial release promoted by this poster lost $2 million and was seen as unimaginative by critics, but since then the film has become a staple in the evangelical toolbox; its promoters claim it has become the most watched film of all time. It has been translated into 1100 languages and still receives wide international distribution on DVD through Internet sales and missionary work, sponsored by Bill Bright's Jesus Film Project. For more information see the Wikipedia article about this film and the links in its footnotes.

Jack and the Beanstalk (1974) - (dir: Gisaburo Sugii) US one-sheet

Jack and the Beanstalk (R1976) - (dir: Gisaburo Sugii) US one-sheet

This is a US 27" x 41" one-sheet poster for a 1976 rerelease of the 1974 Gisaburo Sugii film Jack and the Beanstalk, English version written and directed by Peter J. Solmo with screenplay by Shuji Hirami and starring Billie Lou Watt as the voice of Jack. This is a Japanese musical animation release based on the familiar fairy tale, with a few twists. The English dubbed version has its own character voice actors. Plot summary: When poor Jack climbs way into the clouds to the top of a beanstalk that grew from a handful of magic beans he got in a trade for the family cow, he finds himself in a castle courtyard face-to-face with Margaret [Corinne Orr], the castle's princess. Margaret tells Jack she is very happy because tomorrow she will marry her beloved Prince Tulip (the giant) [Jack Grimes]. This intended of Margaret's is not a menacing, fierce giant of the fee-fi-fo-fum variety; this one is a stupid, clumsy, easily manipulated fellow. Margaret introduces Jack to Prince Tulip's mother, Madame Hecuba [Corinne Orr], actually an evil witch who has Margaret spellbound. The witch's plan is to become queen of the Land of the Clouds after Tulip and Margaret are married. She puts Jack to sleep with drugged soup because she wants to eat him, but Jack wakes up and escapes when the witch hides him from the approaching giant. Jack meets some pantomiming mice dressed as courtiers; they were once the people of the castle before the witch turned them into mice after killing the castle's king and queen (Jack gets this information from a talking harp). Jack sees a hen that lays golden eggs and when he climbs back down the beanstalk he takes it with him along with some of the treaure he finds lying around. He and his mother rejoice at their good fortune, but Jack's dog Crosby [Jack Grimes] reminds him he must go back up and prevent Margaret's marriage to Tulip. Back at the top, Jack learns from the harp that Hecuba's spell over the princess will be broken if someone brave kisses her. Jack crashes the wedding and kisses Margaret. Then Margaret wakes up and recognizes Tulip and Madame Hecuba for who they really are. An angry Tulip is about to step on Jack, but then steps on the witch instead. Then the mice all become people again, but the giant chases Jack down the beanstalk; as in the original tale Jack chops down the beanstalk causing Tulip to fall to his death.

King Dinosaur (1955) - (William Bryant) US insert

This is a 14" x 36" US insert poster for the 1955 Bert I. Gordon 53-minute black-and-white film King Dinosaur based on the story "Beast from Outer Space" by Bert I. Gordon and Al Zimbalist, with screenplay by Tom Gries and starring William Bryant as Dr. Ralph Martin. Plot summary: In 1960 four astronauts travel to a planet called Nova known to have plant life that has just entered the Earth's solar system. They want to determine if the new planet would be suitable for a new colony of humans. They encounter an atmosphere similar to Earth's with comparable vegetation; after taking off their space suits and making themselves at home, they are attacked by a crocodile and then have to fight giant insects and other outsized creatures such as a snake, an alligator, an armadillo, some prehistoric wooly mammoths and the king dinosaur himself, a giant iguana the scientists compare to the prehistoric tyrannosaurus rex; briefly, with no role to play in the film at all, we are also treated to a glimpse of the bizarre-looking mata mata turtle. It took a week to make this film using borrowed equipment and stock footage. The poster, which has become popular among collectors, is quite a bit more interesting than the film.

This is an 11" x 17" two-sided press sheet for the 1955 Byron Haskin noir film Killer Bait, a rerelease of the 1949 Too Late for Tears, based on a serial written for the Saturday Evening Post and a screenplay both by Roy Huggins and starring Lizabeth Scott as Jane Palmer. Plot summary: Jane and Alan Palmer [Arthur Kennedy] are driving to a party late at night on a lonely highway when a satchel containing about $60000 is unexpectedly tossed into their back seat.

Before long someone named Danny Fuller [Dan Duryea] comes to their apartment posing as a detective, but then drops the facade when he finds some newly purchased goods and realizes Jane has been spending the stash; he claims the money belongs to him.

The Jungle Book (1994) - (Jason Scott Lee) US one-sheet

The Jungle Book (1994) - (Jason Scott Lee) US one-sheet

This is a 27" x 40" US folded double-sided one-sheet for the 1994 Stephen Sommers film The Jungle Book very loosely based on the Rudyard Kipling book with screenplay by Stephen Sommers, Ronald Yanover and Mark Geldman and starring Jason Scott Lee as Mowgli. The story in this non-animated film is a huge departure from all previous film versions of The Jungle Book, for starters in the complete absence of any idea that Mowgli is raised from infancy by animals, and then in the much more extensive development of Mowgli's relationship with Kitty, the girl he knew as a child before joining the animals. Plot summary: Instead of being found and taken to a wolf pack by the black panther Bagheera as an infant, at the age of five Mowgli [Sean Naegeli] wanders away from a group of people in the jungle. Here is where Bagheera finds him with his pet wolf pup, Grey Brother, and takes him to the wolf pack. Years later when Mowgli has become a man he has another encounter with the same group of people, where he finds Kitty [Lena Headey] again and falls in love with her. The romance does not go well at this point, and after learning to dance and speak English Mowgli decides to return to the jungle because he is more at home there. He is pursued by a group interested in getting information from him about a lost jungle city and its treasure. In the ensuing conflict Mowgli prevails with the help of his animal friends, is reunited with Kitty and becomes lord of the jungle.

Cast and crew: Stephen Sommers, Rudyard Kipling, Ron Yanover, Mark Geldman, Jason Scott Lee, Cary Elwes, John Cleese, Lena Headey, Sam Neill, John Cleese, Jason Flemyng, Stefan Kalipha, Ron Donachie, Anirudh Agarwal, Faran Tahir, Sean Naegeli, Joanna Wolff, Liza Walker, Rachel Robertson, Natlie Morse

This was the last film produced by Walt Disney, who died in 1966 during production.

A few years later when they hear a man-eating bengal tiger named Shere Khan [George Sanders] has returned to the jungle, the wolves realize Mowgli must return to his own kind for safety. Bagheera volunteers to take him to the man-village, but Mowgli does not want to go because he prefers life in the jungle. Mowgli gets support from Baloo the bear, who promises to continue with his upbringing. Bagheera soon talks Baloo out of this idea after a few mishaps and Mowgli runs away, angry with Baloo. Shere Khan hears of this and decides he will hunt Mowgli down and kill him personally. After Mowgli has a close call with Shere Khan, Bagheera and Baloo finally take him to the man-village; Mowgli is unwilling to go there at first but he is lured in by a beautiful young girl [Darleen Carr].
