Besides E.P. I collect CD's by all the other rock'n'roll greats. DVD's are my other passion, I am slowly building a library of all the films and TV series that I have enjoyed over the years. At present I have 407 movies and 436 TV eposodes. At least 3/4 of these are westerns!

Trivia...........

-German lobbys DN/FRWL/GF were hand colored......standard then
-DN/FRWL/GF/TB posters......all had coffin logo , YOLT had the UA circle logo.......OHMSS and onwards had the T aka Transamerica logo (note DN was re-issued in Germany/Italy fea the coffin logo)

DN-DAF German posters (coffin/circle UA/T/UIP logos.....UIP is 80s era)

DN-OHMSS Italy posters.....all fea the Bell logo

In Denmark/Germany they used matte paper until the 70s when the paper type changed to glossy......60s Bonds printed on glossy paper are re-issues.

German posters from 50s/60s can be extremely difficult to find , they just didnt keep em.......also in many cases the Euro art beats the US art.

Try finding German posters from 1946 or earlier......imposssible (most films were banned too under WW2)

Sorry for hijacking this thead so much....... ::rocks :smt006 :lol:
