I'LL CRY TOMORROW Daybill Movie poster Original or Reissue?

10 Jun 2019 | Added by John Reid

A number of collectors and dealers have mistenly thought that an I'll Cry Tomorrow daybill daybill is a first release original. It is quite understandable that they have assumed that the poster is original. The daybill is full colour and has the correct censorship logo for the era but the clue is in the printers details.


The reissue (pictured to the right) was printed by Advertising and Commercial who printed Australian posters between approximately 1960 and 1962. The original, which is very scarce, was printed by W.E.Smith who printed daybills up until the mid to late 50s. When you look at the two posters together there is not much difference but obviously the most sought after and desirable poster would be the original daybill on the left.
