Did you know... that Republic Pictures did something incredibly sneaky when they re-released Wake of the Red Witch just 3 years after the first release?

Republic Pictures did something VERY "sneaky" when they decided to re-release this movie in 1952, just three years after the original release. They printed more posters, extremely similar to the 1949 posters (we know of one-sheets and three-sheets, but there were likely other sizes as well), and they were surely printed from the original plates, because they are exactly identical to the originals in every way, EXCEPT that they changed the litho number on both the one-sheets and three-sheets they printed in 1952, and also the position of the studio logo changed on both the posters, and really oddly, they put the 1949 NSS on the 1952 re-release one-sheet, even though it was not on the 1949 one-sheet! The poster offered here is one of the 1952 re-release one-sheets, that looks almost identical to the 1949 poster, except for its different litho number and the addition of a 1949 NSS.

Here is a close-up showing the lower right of the 1952 re-release (litho of 43877 and the misleading 49/62 NSS number) and the 1949 first release (litho of 36899 and no NSS number) one-sheets:

And you can go here to see all of the U.S. posters (sorted by size) from Wake of the Red Witch.
