Movie graphic from Denmark, circa 1926–64

Swing Time (1936) signed: Erik F. I’ve done three posts of vintage Swedish movie posters, but this is my first (and probably last) post of Danish posters. Kurt Wenzel and Erik F. (Erik Frederiksen) seem to be the big names in poster design in Denmark. The reproductions are from expired auction listings at Heritage doesn’t have many to choose from (unlike the Swedish posters), and almost all of them are stamped by the Danish censor board, which makes me think they come from a single collection. Greed (1926) Kiss of Death (1947) Last Warning (1929) The Thing from Another World (1951) The War of the Worlds (1954) signed: Wenzel King Kong (poster, 1948) signed: Boye The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) Pearls of the Crown (1937) signed: Rodian T. Dark Victory (1939) Leave Her to Heaven (1948) signed: Willy Suspicion (1948) Looks like Wenzel again The 39 Steps (1960) signed: Wenzel The Puritan (Early 1940s) signed: Ruthwenn Eriksen Chamber of Horrors (1947) signed: Erik F. The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb (1964) The Gay Divorcee (1934) signed: Erik F. Maciste in Hell (1927) signed: Wenzel I would have guessed a much later date for this poster The Night of the Hunter (1955) signed: Wenzel Sunset Boulevard (1951) signed: ByS?
