It would be interesting to know more about Entertainment Films...
At one point I also had a 400' Nosferatu and The Bells (1926)from them but in plain white boxes.
Cheers

Regarding past commemnts of the "Iwo Jima cover" the island itself was only 4.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide. To take that island was very costly in lives. I think the title on the box is appropriate for those involved and speaks for itself.

Anyway.... here are some more

I had a copy of The Incredible Shrinking Man; I used to like the Castle shorts because you saw subtitles, rather than separate titles as in the Walton releases. The Castle Films in the UK were in flimsier boxes than the US copies and had a paper label rather than the image direct on the box. I am afraid I gave all of them away to a beginner when I went over to sound. Great to see these images, they bring back a lot of memories.

I well remember the Castle two piece boxes, beautiful illustrations,
"The Mummy's Tomb" springs to mind, being one of the first Castle Film 200's I purchased. As Robert says, they invoke memories of happy collecting, long gone. Truth be told for me, I
think our friends in Germany & Holland had the nicest boxes
regarding longevity, Marketing, and UFA, with great photos on the
boxes, even though I am not really that into boxes, as it's always
the film with me, they were rather nice, as were Columbia with
nice stills from the film.

As a box-boy from way back, some of the finer ones were (are);

APOLLO ELEVEN MISSION, BAITING BEAUTIES, RAILS INTO LARAMIE, DRACULA, GOBS IN A MESS - Just for a random example on some categories - Shorty

Joe, your name is synonymous with box collecting as is Pat, Paul
Tom & Winbert, with box tops, can I add far superior to what the professionals gave us. LEGENDS OF THE GAUGE.
Truly, thanks to folks like you, future geeks can view the wrappings of this dubious hobby.

One I would like see if you have it Douglas is Albert Dekker in 'Dr.Cyclops'

Here is one I have, not sure if it qualifies as great art, but I don't think many, even in the UK will have seen this Laurel & Hardy short. It was made by Arrow Photographic, and I bought it about 1974.

This last one says ABC Film Library, New Jersey. I remember they also did Tom Sawyer, which was also from the Selznick Studios.
