Those daybills are sweet! The cheap inks lend old school charm. A bit jealous, all I've got is a reduced photo repro of the Ride Again one sheet. Hey ho, better than nothing and glad for it. Fearless Vampire Killers is fun too, though a bit disturbing to watch, Sharon Tate and all. Max Wall did a hilarious 10 min promo for the film, a favorite bit. Speaking of quality horror, have you seen Hammer's "Let Me In" (2010), the English version of Lat Den Ratte Komma In. Excellent picture heralding Hammer's return, it may suffer some genre cliches but performances/cinematography/score are devastating.
A coming of age film on a par with "L. I. E. " (2000), another must see :)

Thanks about the congrat with the posters and yeah they're lovely items. I had them for a very cool price too an they came to just over £52 or $79 or so. It's surprising what you can find if you trawl through eBay in the early hours but I admit I was very lucky to win them both. :wink:

The Roman Polanski " Fearless Vampire Killers 30x40 poster cost £20 or $30 which is Ironic as the frame to hold it set me back £53 or $80. I'd always wanted to have one and I saw the Spanish version I didn't care that it wasn't the UK or US version as it's virtually Identical apart from the title text to the British release and is a beautiful sight to see. It's in very good condition too for it 45+ years. I love the film to bits and adore how Roman Polanski ( Director also) , Jack Macgowran, Alfie Bass, Ferdy Maine as the Vampire count Krolock and his son Herbert played by Ian Quarrier played their parts so well as did the beautiful Sharon Tate who was in her elements and it's sad knowing her pending horrible fate in 1969 at the hands of the scum Manson crew. My favourite part of the film and there are many is the Chase scene between Alfred & Herbert which is amazingly horrific but funny, lol. Yeah that promo you mentioned with the great Max Wall in the special features of the DVD release which is so cool I might add but have you seen the American film sequence for the film? It's like a Hanna/Barbera episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OPvFqh- ... detailpage. Love it! lol. 8)

I'm a big fan of Nordic films such as Troll Hunter and the film mentioned "Lat Den Ratte Komma In " Let the right one in. No I haven't seen the American version sadly but if it's as good as the original I'm in for a blood sucking treat. :P

No matter how many times I watch that film it seems to get better and better. It's a classic for a reason. :P

Fenella Fielding's quite a draw too. Nearly got me into smoking until I realise it would burn the leather sofa. :P

"Troll Hunter"? Paints a funny picture, will look that one up, cheers. If you're fond of Scandinavian cinema be certain to check out "My Life as a Dog" (1985), another classic. Let the Right One In, haven't seen the Swedish original or read the novel but hope to someday. Chances are you've seen the Norwegian zombie film "Dead Snow" (2009). If not, do. Not bad at all as zombie films go, which all too frequently isn't very far these days. Favorite bits from Fearless Vampire Killers include MacGowran and Polanski clambering over icy parapets (incredible sets!), the colossal library, vast ballroom scene and Ferdy Mayne hamming it up. Can ye blame him? Dunno if it's available UK but if you're a Ferdy fan check out the desperately low budget "Frightmare" (1983) featuring Jeffery Combs (of Re-Animator fame) in an early role. Hilariously cheezy :)

R.I.P. Ray Harryhausen, an icon of artistry of the fantastic and huge influence upon us all. A favorite is "Mysterious Island" (1961) with Bernard Herrmann's brilliant score.

Troll Hunter is so cool and if you see it you'll be very happy you did. It's filmed a bit like Blair witch but not as shaky and features a film crew who follow a group of Trackers into the wilderness with some great special effects too. I'll also check out the other one Scandanavian films mentioned also. Thanks! 8) (P/S) Love the re Animator movies too.... :P

I' ve noticed a lot of films have aped Fearless Vampire Killers too with the Mirror gag and how it when at the ball it shows no reflection of the Vampires leaving Alfred, Sara and Professor Abronsious alone and the ensuing chase scene. It was used in the Van Helsing movie with Hugh Jackman & Kate Beckinsale. Frightmare? I've Never heard or seen that one which I'll try to check out but I do know there a early seventies Vampire Comedy featuring Ferdy Maine as the Count which is a bit naughty and full of boobs & bums and the name escapes me. lol. ;)

I too was sad to hear of the great Ray Harryheusen's death and so soon after his friend Ray Bradbury. Loved all the movies he Animated for especially the late 50's early 60's Sindbad films not to mention all the cool Sci-fi flicks and the famous of them all King Kong. :)

If you are gonna look for "Frightmare" (1983) be warned: I got the DVD from a 99¢ shop for half price which says something, but it's far better than humourless websites would have us believe. Of course it's dreadful, deliriously so, that's why it's so funny! :roll:
Cheap and cheerful, a must for any Ferdy Mayne fan, he really ran with that role.
Back on topic, the only other Steptoe 'collectible' (another unsigned repro) I've got is a b/w 8 x 11 photo of Wilf & Harry in character on set, the skeleton behind them. Must be prior series 3, judging by the hairstyles :)

Still trying to determine when the photo I've got of Harry & Wilf was taken, appears to be series 1. Props and hairstyles seem to be a reliable guide. That and the condition of Albert's teeth, progressive deterioration of his false hampsteads is more accurate than carbon dating.
