Original Film Poster ... From Greece!

Wow, who knew I'd come across one of these...ever. Original release movie poster from Greece. Love the art on this, very subdued, but still totally in tune with other art of the time. Now I need to find out what else there is from that release!
I do not have an official release date for Greece, but the poster still lists RKO as the distributor, so it must be prior to 1955.  My guess would be the same as the rest of Europe, late 1951 or early 1952.

First of Two Exciting News Posts!

This past week saw a shipment of fabulous stuff leave the Tulgey Wood and start winging its way to Melbourne, Australia for approximately six months.  Why you may ask?  Well, I'll tell you.  The Australian Center for the Moving Image is mounting an exhibition all about Alice in Wonderland in media, and I have lent them about 45 items.  Exhibition begins April 5th, stay tuned for pictures from the event as we will be live and in person!  See you down under!
Check out their trailer!

Zaccagnini Cheshire Cat Redux - I Love the Internet!

Some of you may remember a few years ago I unsuccessfully attempted to purchase a Zaccagnini Cheshire Cat on eBay.  The auction gods did not smile on me that day, but lo' and behold:  this past June the internet gods (far more powerful) did smile upon me, and now this guy is safely ensconced here in the Tulgey Wood.  And there was much rejoicing.
This reduces the number of known figures not in the collection to two:  the Queen of Hearts and the Walrus.  Hint, hint.
