“History is not about the facts. It is about the context and who is telling the story.” —Prof. Milton Fine.
This original 1939 Italian "Fotobusta" for the Neville Spanish Civil War thriller IN THE RED HELL is for sale. It measures ca. 35 x 50 cm, or 14 x 20 inches, printed on cardboard. There are two small puncture holes, one located in the trousers of Alfredo, the other towards the bottom of the Fotobusta (see close-ups.)
We had asked an Italian poster dealer we know to try to find a Fotobusta of the film three years ago, and eventually we found the one in our Collection on our own. The dealer recently reported that he had finally found us a Fotobusta at some expense, because they are so rare and that nobody had one, so that he had to trade for it. Given that we had asked him to find one, we felt a professional need to purchase it, although it was the same one we own -- with the most famous scene from the film depicted! In light of the recent release of the film by International Historic Films on DVD, we are pleased to offer this very rare second original copy for sale. The price includes worldwide shipping.
