Those of you who know me know that I have been fascinated (since the fall of the Berlin Wall) by vintage Disneyana from the former Communist countries. Michael Sporn stumbled this weekend on a true treasure trove. The Posteritati Movie Poster Gallery (239 Centre St. in New York) is offering for sale through its site an amazing range of Disney posters, a large part of which are from outside of the US. Those from Russia, Czech Republic and Poland are by far the most fascinating to my taste.

The poster above is from a 1955 release of Snow White in Russia. Unauthorized released probably.

The one below is from a 1960 release of Dumbo in the Czech Republic.

The three posters below are all from Poland. Pinocchio is from 1962, Fantasia from 1961 and Peter Pan from 1960.
