Here's something I've never seen before: A UK poster for HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS, complete with dreaded X rating. While "X" was the strictest rating that a legitimate film could receive in Britain, it didn't carry with it the pornographic connotations it quickly developed here in the U.S. British censors were always more strict in regards to violence than sexual content, and HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS is a surprisingly violent film.
The image above was shared by WORLD OF FORD on Flickr, who says this about the two posters:
"Another poster rescued from the ABC cinema on Ferensway in Hull prior to demolition. Several of these posters had been used to line the inside of wooden staff lockers, facing inwards, it was only by chance I noticed them."I've never heard of the other MGM film pictured above, 1970's THE TRAVELING EXECUTIONER. A quick perusal of IMDB and Amazon show it's got a terrific cast, even if the film isn't especially memorable.
