The glorious artwork on this Spanish language horror movie poster depicts Llona Wolfstein (Perla Cristal) giving the unfortunate chained Waldemar Daninsky (Paul Naschy) a severe whipping in the castle's dungeon...........one almost feels sorry for the poor fellow. The Fury of the Wolfman (AKA Wolfman Never Sleeps) was made in 1972 and this 29 by 43 inch poster is thus over 40 years old...£85 including indured postage to any UK address. NB - Like virtually all genuine vintage cinema posters this has mailing folds, marks and or signs of wear accrued during its display in various cinemas - it is not a pristine, mint reproduction but a genuinely old patinated artefact. The degree of wear and overall condition obvious varies from poster to poster and if you would like an exact condition report on this particular one please do ask but overall we would describe this example as being in excellent state........

The Fury of the Wolfman - 1972 horror film poster
US one sheet (27 by 41 inch) poster for the 1951 movie Westward the Women. This is a re-release poster printed circa 1960 but even so is well over 50 years old and for just £35 (including insured postage to your address) would enhance the wall of your bachelor pad, warehouse apartment, garage, cafe, restaurant or almost any place with wall space enough. A talking point too perhaps with chauvinistic interpretations possible - hedonistic male city types transporting truckloads of the fairer sex down to their 'grand design' waterside second homes situated here in the West Country etc..no that's too silly - anyway here's a genuinely old advertising poster for a lot less than the price of a good bottle of champagne. NB - Like virtually all genuine vintage cinema posters this has mailing folds, marks and or signs of wear accrued during its display in various cinemas - it is not a pristine, mint reproduction but a genuinely old patinated artifact.

Although small (image size 160mm by 120mm) this is typical of Wyllie's beautifully executed marine studies and, to boot, is a hand signed etching of one of his favourite subjects - The Battle of Trafalgar and HMS Victory. Framed in plain black frame with a window mount many years ago (trade label on the rear) it would perhaps benefit from remounting and framing however we will leave this to the purchaser who would doubtless prefer to choose their own materials. £295 William Lionel Wyllie was born on 5 July 1851 at 67 Albany Street, Camden, London, the elder son of William Morrison Wyllie (1820–1895), a prosperous minor-genre painter living in London and Wimereux, France. Most of Wyllie's early summers were spent in France with his parents. He began to draw from an early age, and his natural talent was encouraged by his father and by Lionel Smythe, his step brother. He was given a thorough artistic education first at the Heatherley School of Fine Art, and then in 1866, aged 15, at the Royal Academy Schools. At the Royal Academy he studied under Edwin Henry Landseer, John Everett Millais and Frederic Leighton, among others. He further demonstrated his precocious talent when he won the Turner Gold Medal in 1869 at the age of eighteen with Dawn after a Storm. From the early 1870s Wyllie worked as an illustrator of maritime subjects for The Graphic. In 1875 the Academy rejected two of his works, and in anger he declared his intention to give up art for a career at sea. Over the course of several sailing cruises as far afield as Europe he laid the foundations for a lifelong love of the sea and of maritime subjects. Wyllie was a prolific exhibitor, with paintings and etchings shown at the Royal Academy, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, the Grosvenor Gallery, the New English Art Club, the Society of British Artists, the Dowdeswell Galleries and the Fine Art Society. Wyllie became a member of the Society of British Artists in 1875, and of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1882. In 1887 he became a member of the New English Art Club. In 1889 he was made an associate of the Royal Academy, and in 1907 he was elected as a full member. In 1903 he became a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers. Wyllie campaigned vigorously for the restoration of HMS Victory as a founder member of the Society for Nautical Research, and in 1930 his 42-foot (13 m) panorama of the Battle of Trafalgar was unveiled by King George V. It still hangs in the Royal Naval Museum within the Historic Dockyard at Portsmouth where it is admired by tens of thousands of people every year. Wyllie was the most distinguished marine artist of his day and his work is still in great demand. From 1906, when he moved to Portsmouth, he became closely associated with the Royal Navy. So much so, indeed, that he was buried with full naval honours in 1931. In a moving ceremony, reminiscent of Nelson’s state funeral in 1806, his body was rowed up Portsmouth Harbour in a naval cutter past battleships with dipped colours and bugles calling and quaysides lined with dockyard workers.

Original US one sheet movie poster for the 1978 rendition of the Lord of the Rings. An animated fantasy film directed by Ralph Bakshi it uses a hybrid of traditional cel animation and rotoscoped live action footage. It is an adaptation of the first half of the high fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings (1954–55) by English novelist J. R. R. Tolkien. Set in Middle-earth, the film follows a group of hobbits, elves, men, dwarves, and wizards who form a fellowship. They embark on a quest to destroy the One Ring made by the Dark Lord Sauron, and ensure his destruction. The film features the voices of William Squire, John Hurt, Michael Graham Cox, and Anthony Daniels of Star Wars fame, and was one of the first animated films to be presented theatrically in the Dolby Stereo sound system. The screenplay was written by Peter S. Beagle, based on an earlier draft by Chris Conkling. Ralph Bakshi encountered Tolkien's writing early in his career, and had made several attempts to produce The Lord of the Rings as an animated film before being given funding by producer Saul Zaentz and distributor United Artists. The film is notable for its extensive use of rotoscoping, a technique in which scenes are first shot in live-action, then traced onto animation cels. Although the film was a financial success, it received a mixed reaction from critics and there was no official sequel to cover the remainder of the story. Personally I think that Tolkien's classic epics are better absorbed and enjoyed as he meant them to be - in book form. Nevertheless this poster does pay homage to the author's work as well as being highly decorative. In good condition and if framed the mailing folds will be all but invisible.....£75 including insured postage to any UK address.
