Original Vintage Movie Posters - SimonDwyer.Com

Great War Films

This month we’re looking at posters from some of the greatest war films ever made.

War is an enduring genre for movies, depicting the extremes of human emotions – greed, fear, love, hate, heroism, desolation and joy. These films show us the very best and the very worst of the human condition, brought into focus by the chaos of the battlefield. These contrasts not only define us, they also teach us about our history and the sheer futility of conflict. Films about Vietnam like Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket or Platoon. Satirical cult classics like Mash or POW movies like The Great Escape, Colditz or Bridge on the River Kwai. Battlefield classics like the Longest Day or Zulu. First World War films like All Quiet on the Western Front or Lawrence of Arabia. This month’s showcase is just a small selection of the war related posters on the website.

As well as movie posters, I have also included some original propaganda posters from the two world wars, including the iconic KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON poster from 1939.

All Quiet on the Western Front Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
All Quiet on the Western Front 1930 UK DC - 20" x 30" Very Good/Fine £995
Notes: British material on this tremendously important First World War film is notoriously difficult to find - this is the only example of a 1930 first release poster that I have ever heard of. Moreover, the text actually provides us with the provenance. It was used at the Empire Cinema in Faversham for a week from October 12th 1930. Quite possibly a unique opportunity. Folded with some overall wrinkling but no staining and no damage.
