About This Item

Barcelona: Various Film Studios, 1971. Collection of 158 Spanish film heralds for American genre and drama films released 1923-1971. Nearly all heralds were printed in Barcelona, by printers Marti y Mari, I.G. Viladot, Juan Barguno, Melguizo, Jose Sabadell, Graficas Valencia, and others, upon the Spanish release of international films. Most are for American films, a few Spanish productions, and notable others include English's "The Adventures of Captain Marvel" (1941), Tourneur's "Cat People" (1942), Fleming's "Gone with the Wind" (1939) and "The Wizard of Oz" (1939), Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt" (1943), Beebe's "The Shadow of the Eagle" (1932), from Blystone's "Our Hospitality" (1923) to Hough's "Twins of Evil" (1971).

Film handbills, or heralds, were essentially mini film posters, and were produced as an economical way to promote both international and regional films, distributed by press agencies and theaters shortly before the film's local release. Many were released with specific text on the verso, advertising a nearby cinema or brief film credits. Design styles included folding brochures, and die-cut shapes and moving parts, illustrated with film stills and Spanish renditions of original poster art, as well as original work by Spanish artists.

Most are 3.25 x 5 inches, several die-cut shapes and slightly larger folding examples. Very Good plus overall, with light rubbing and a few minor creases.
