Introduction

The following is a listing of the film poster collection of Michael Organ. The collection was begun in 1999 with the purchase of a 1984 Metropolis Australian insert poster from Cinemarts, Sydney, followed by a US 1 sheet Audie Murphy poster off internet auction house eBay. Since then the majority of material has been purchased from eBay. The listing comprises original posters, used and in various conditions. The posters were acquired with limited resources and very much reflect the personal tastes of the compiler. Some general themes are evident e.g. Australian films, movies relating to Tibet, and Fritz Lang's Metropolis of 1927. The posters are listed chronologically according to year of production of the film. In some cases the poster date is later, as in the case of a re-release or an overseas release.
