Zu neuen Ufern

 

This Italian poster is a 2–sheet, measuring 78 inches x 55 inches (200 cm x 140 cm). It differs from the German poster graphics by adding the queue of female prisoners lined up to go onboard the ship departing London for the Antipodes – to the bleak Parramatta Womens' Prison, 25 miles from Sydney. Incidentally, the Womens' Prison still stands in present-day Parramatta as a national heritage site.

 

The original Italian poster  shown at the bottom of this webpage used the German poster graphic design butUFERN  -- GFDN.jpeg added the queue of prisoners, undoubtedly because without that imagery the Italian title of the film "The female prisoner of Sydney" would not have made much sense.  We show the original German poster image at right.

An outstanding re–mastered print of the film, along with Zarah Leander in La Habanera was released on Blu Ray in early 2021, both with English subtitles:
