An Original Vintage One-Sheet Movie Poster (1sh) (Learn More)

Pickup, the 1951 Hugo Haas bad girl crime film noir (with an amazing number of hard-boiled taglines on the various posters [likely explained by the two different campaigns; see below]; "They gave her a bad name and she lived up to it!"; "Murder was her mistake... Marrying her was his!"; "Would you 'Pick-Up' this girl? - You won't if you know what's good for you"; "Don't be scared- ...I'm just a girl..."; "You can 'Pick Up' this girl... but you won't if you know what's good for you!"; "Marrying her was his mistake... Murder was hers!"; "Easy to 'Pick-Up' but you won't if you know what's good for you!"; "The low-down on a come-on girl!"; "Get in kid, there's always room for one more..."; about a beautiful young woman who traps an older man who wants her; she marries him and then plans to murder him!) starring Beverly Michaels, Hugo Haas, Allan Nixon, Howland Chamberlin, and Jo Carroll Dennison. Note that this is an unusual movie (aside from being one of the most classic bad girl movies ever!). It had two entirely different campaigns. The images were the same, but the coloring and taglines were different. There are two different one-sheets and two different title cards, and likely two different versions of the other size posters. It seems likely that they started with one campaign and then immediately either changed the campaign to the new taglines, or continued with both campaigns (we know this because one of the one-sheets has a lower litho number than the other, but not by much, so they both came out in 1951). We would think the vast majority of collectors would view both campaigns as first release, and many collectors would likely want to get an example from each campaign!
