Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked Folded Australian Daybill Movie Poster (measures 15" x 40") (Learn More)

Chang, the 1927 Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack silent Thailand jungle adventure documentary (nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award; about a peasant family in Siam [now Thailand] who live in a cleared area in the middle of a jungle, and they face endless problems from the wild animals that attack their domesticated animals, including tigers and leopards, but worst of all is the "chang", which is Thai for "elephant", because they sometimes stampede, and the movie shows a group of the men from the village who go out and herd up the elephants, and start to domesticate them!; the movie is not strictly a documentary, because most of the scenes were "recreated", but it seemed incredibly real to 1927 audiences) starring Kru, Chantui, Nah, and Ladah. When the producers of the movie Cooper and Schoedsack saw how much the public loved seeing authentic jungle scenes with wild animals, they hit on the idea of creating a fictional movie with the same setting, and that led to their creating "King Kong", but of course with the massive participation of Willis O'Brien. Note that original movie paper of any sort from this documentary is INCREDIBLY scarce! In the past, we have only auctioned a first release German program, an Australian daybill, and a U.S. glass slide, but never any first release U.S. movie paper.

If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.

Condition: very good. the poster was linenbacked; prior to linenbacking the poster had smudges, stains, creases, and small tears around the edges of the poster; during restoration, a portion of the top blank area was painted over to "even out" the color (this was extremely well done); the image area had many fine creases and scuff marks, but they were greatly minimized during the linenbacking process, and they really can only be seen when the poster is tilted to the light. The poster really looks quite nice and there is little paint anywhere on the image!
