An Original Vintage Theatrical Tri-Folded One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh; measures 29" x 41 1/4" [74 x 105 cm]) (Learn More)

Children of the Sun, the 1934 Samuel Cummins nudist sexploitation documentary ("The French Nudist"; "Nature in the raw"; "Something new and different"). Note that this documentary discusses the birth, growth and future of the 1930s nudist movement in the United States and Europe, with particular emphasis on France, where most of the scenes had been shot. Producer/director Samuel Cummins was a major figure in early sexploitation movies who is almost completely forgotten today, and it is very difficult to find information about him or his movies. Cummins was a Jewish-American of unknown heritage who was born in New York in 1895. In 1919, he produced the amazing (for his time) film "The Solitary Sin", which dealt with masturbation and venereal disease! He made at least one more movie in 1919 and then two in the late 1920s, and then he appears to have made this movie in 1934, and another non-sex related movie "War is a Racket" the same year, and in 1937, he apparently edited the wacky documentary "Love Life of a Gorilla"! He wrapped up his career in 1952 by directing a documentary on nudism called "10 Days in a Nudist Camp". This is the information about him we could glean from the Internet, but there are long gaps between movies, and the information on the movies listed is so sketchy that it is hard to know how accurate it is. We do know that he was responsible for first importing the classic Hedy Lamarr movie "Ecstasy" to the U.S. in 1935, although it could not be shown until years after. We do know for certain that this movie, "Children of the Sun", was made in 1934 and was distributed by Samuel Cummins and shown in the U.S., but we can't say for certain exactly what Samuel Cummins' connection to it was (but he likely acquired the rights to it from a different filmmaker). If anyone has more information about any of this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Important Added Info: Note that this one-sheet measures 29" x 41 1/4" [74 x 105 cm]. Also note that this item contains some nudity, so we have placed a white bar over those areas for those who are bothered by such images. Of course, the actual item does not have the white bars. Finally, note that this poster was very lightly tri-folded only (which means there is no vertical machine fold) but because it would be more expensive to send flat, it will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: very good. The poster was very lightly tri-folded at one time. It has a few small tears in the borders, with more tears and discoloration in the left blank border, with paper loss in the top left blank corner. But other than the border defects described above, the poster is in excellent condition!
