Another Withnail & I collection

PostPosted by Grubbles » Sat Apr 18, 2009 9:44 pm

Parkin suggested I repost my Withnail collection in a new thread.
I have only these poor quality images. I'll take some more in the daylight, but I don't have a camera, so it'll have to be mobile phone images again. Shouldn't be a problem as I doubt there is anything you've not seen before.

(Click for larger images on all of the below)

From left to right.
Two Admission Tickets from when I saw Withnail & I in the cinema in 2007

* These things aren't technically "Withnail & I" merchandise, but I like to keep them with the rest of the stuff due to their connections to the film.

Not bad but not good enough, to beat myself and Parkin. Nice one Captain Benny.

looks like you been busy on Ebay mate !!

I did consider the laser disc at one point, but thought it may be a bit extream !! :lol:
So what is the diff between the 2001 and 2005 dvds ?? And is the 2007 the original cinema release without the extras ?

The king of all posters to get is the original movie quad. I was lucky to get mine
Anything that is original and signed is good to get, but not that shite they keep selling on ebay !
Cinema lobby cards are good too. And of course the signed photo of Murray Close's from the 20th Anni. reunion. 8)

The 2001 DVD has extras such as commentary, the trailer, and Withnail & Us. The 2005 DVD is a reprint, but in the wrong aspect ratio, and without the extras. The 2007 DVD is a reprint without the extras, but in the correct ratio.

What does the original quad look like? Is it this one?

cheers Grubby,... but are the 2005 and 2007 the original cinema release, ie, still all gritty and grainey and dark like the original video release. The 2001 and Tin versions are too shiney and brightly lit for me,.. :thumbdown:

yeah, that is the poster,.. and that's mine !!!! hands off it you poacher !!!! :lol: :lol: :thumbup:

20th Anniversary

It seems I was wrong about the ratio being correct in the 2007 DVD.


[EDIT]
Is there anything anyone can tell me about this poster?
Image
It's a Quad, Quad Crown Broadside according to this
It's in black and white, other than the title "Withnail & I" which is in red. It is exactly the same design as the flyer that jeff wode sold.
Image
I bought it a few years ago because I'd never seen one like it before - and I've never seen one like it since. That's the main reason I bought the flyer... that, and I was already buying the Flick Book...

So, has anyone seen one of these before? Did one of you sell it to me?

How much did you pay for it (the quad), if you don't mind me asking.

I can tell you that it is bloody blurry !! :lol:
I'm guessing it is an old one because it doesn't mention '10 anniversary release' like Soupys yellow one does.
There were no posters that I could see when they re-released it the other year in selected cinemas. So I'm guessing that maybe it came out when the film did.
The poster that I have doen't give you much info about the film, so maybe they did that one to get people more interested, drum up some buisness
Are there any dates on it ?
I also think it is for the original release because it mentions 'A private function' and 'monty python'

I've got 2 diff posters for How to get ahead in Advertising, one with reviews and one without, both are different. I personally prefer them without reviews meself.

I bought it long before the recent cinema release, but after the first DVD release. There are no dates, however the '15' certificate is the one used between 1982 and 2002. Someone has written "Withnail & I" on the back... and it is generally in a bad way. It looks as though it has been folded many times, there are a few pin holes and creases, a tiny hole has worn into the centre. Not visible from a general viewing distance, but you can see it when close. Despite all of this I like it and I shall get it framed one day - when I'm not a student.

haveyougotsoup - wouldn't have paid much for it. It must have been somewhere between £20 and £30. I bought it on eBay years ago. I think one person bid against me one time.

Then I suggest you purchase 6 italian posters for a lot less than 20 - 30 quid each.

Grubs,.. I reckon it is from the original release of the film,..
Shame it's is such bad condition though :thumbdown:
A good condition one would go for between £30 - £50 I reckon,.. depending on who was bidding.
