Italian “I Was an American Spy” Poster
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 87
If you hadn’t already guessed, I own a lot of Ann Dvorak memorabilia. Literally thousands of pieces. Of all her films, I’m pretty sure the one I have the most items on is sadly, not Three on a Match, but I Was an American Spy. I have the full lobby card set, both 1/2 sheets, the insert, one-sheet, three-sheet, six-sheet…I think the only thing I don’t have is the twenty-four-sheet – but give me time.
I also have some foreign posters for the film, including this one from Italy. The American artwork is rather severe, with bold colors (not that I don’t love it), but I like that the Italian art is more subdued in style, even if the content is still heavy. It is an intense WWII drama after all.
This is actually one of my favorite posters in the collection, and it may be the only Italian one I own – but give me time.
