Recently aquired the Belgian North By Northwest Poster which has instantly become one of my favourites. The Belgian Bullit Poster is superb too. I may switch focus to Belgian material as the artwork is striking and unusual.

I agree, the artwork, renditions of actors likenesses and color are all outstanding, compared to some other countries, whose actor likenesses need a bit of help. Plus, they are a great size to manage and frame.

Unfortunately they are also a very manageable size to copy and bootleg too! I've run into equal numbers of originals and fakes at this point. I would love to collect more Belgian posters, but I only limit myself to the most reputable of sellers. In some cases it is as bad as trying to buy inserts of titles that have been minty-white-bootlegged. However in the case of Belgian posters, I've even run into fakes for what I would consider more obscure titles. Cuckor's Two Faced Woman -- who on earth would bootleg that!?! I own one though... sigh.

hi harry.

i know that there are also those later releases that are issued that look identical to the original release, except for the fact that obscure distributor's names are printed where the original MGM, Warner bros, Universal names existed.

I guess bootlegs will appear, not matter the country of origin or title. It is truly astounding.

There was a seller on ebay selling a slew of various older titles, some from silent films, that he said were original belgians.. no one ever bid on any of them and now i see that seller is no longer registered (at least under the name he was just using). makes me wonder if they were all reproductions.

Well, from my experience there are three types of posters you need to worry about:

1. Commercial reprints -- I'm not sure if these were originally printed with the intention of deceiving or not... they are typically the correct size, but printer info is written in English (Printed in Belgium) instead of French (Imprime en Belgique).

2. Later re-releases -- Original releases will almost always say the US studio name at the top (Warner Brothers presente, etc...). However, many titles were re-released with local distributors.

3. Fakes -- These were less common, but appear to be getting more so due to the small size and great artwork. I have gotten several bootlegs at this point. All had the correct printer and studio information, but quality has varied tremendously. I got a "Blow-Up" fake that looked like it was printed on an inkjet printer. But I also got the above mentioned Two-Faced Woman and if it wasn't for the paper I never would have caught it... the printing was VERY good.

My originals have all come on very thin, but fairly strong glossy paper. It almost feels a touch like wax paper to me. Anyway, the fakes I've gotten are usually (but not always) on thicker paper... almost bordering on card stock.

Buyer beware.
