SUBMARINE PATROL (1939) Director John Ford Stars: Richard Greene
Original Australian hand litho long daybill approximately 15" x 40" fine – very fine condition. Magnificent poster – very rare. Prior to backing the poster had minor chips, one or two water stains and small paper loss in the lower border areas. This has been professionally restored and the poster looks absolutely superb on linen. Any restoration that was done is virtually undetectable.
I have never heard of another Australian poster surfacing for this title.
"Long" daybills were produced in Australia until 1941 when they were replaced by the more familiar smaller format. Long daybills varied in widths from approximately 15 inches wide x approximately 40 inches in height. The measurements given in the descriptions are appoximate to the nearest inch.
