Heres why original vintage publicity photos actually used to promote the films original release are sometimes more exciting and desirable then the movie posters. The images are usually unique and Only captured by studio photographers specifically for promotional/publicity still photos and were not on any movie posters. Like our recently acquired Mighty Joe Young photos which capture the REAL Joe. Only animated images were used in the movie posters and lobby cards. Never an actual photo of Joe!
They are often dated and some have extensive provenance on the back in the form of studio stamps, photographer stamps, period newspaper clippings, etc. The images are often sharper than the posters. For example, ideal for displaying with a historical relic like an autograph. The item "MIGHTY JOE YOUNG Original Vintage photo still Lion 1949" is in sale since Wednesday, June 13, 2018.
