Four in a Jeep — International Posters

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features

Die Vier im Jeep (Four in a Jeep) was the original title of this 1951.  It was filmed in Austria. Anyone seen it?  I found some neat posters about it. Here’s more on Wikipedia.

“In post-war Vienna, occupied by the Allies, four sergeants representing each of the occupying nations (USA, England, France, Soviet Union)patrol in the same Jeep. One day they are given the mission to capture and arrest a prisoner who has run away from a Soviet war prisoner camp. But when they learn the truth about Karl, the runaway, and Franziska, his wife, they decide to help him instead. The trouble is that the Soviet sergeant is held on a short leash by his superiors. He has strict orders not to let the fugitive slip away and he comes into conflict with his fellow military policemen. In these conditions, Will Karl and Franziska be reunited and live free again?”

You can find Four In A Jeep: Director’s Cut at Amazon.com

I found a variety of posters at comicartfans.com.  These were all posted by the owner of the originals, Roy Mann.

Salem Jeep Club Plaque **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features

UPDATE II: Sold, was on eBay.

UPDATE:  Two of the three facts I got from the internet were wrong (imagine that, lol), the date it started and the fact it was no longer around. Thanks to Greg for updating us! This plaque was listed on eBay.

Greg wrote, “My name is Greg Peters, President of the Salem Jeep Club. The Salem Jeep Club was started in 1964, and joined the Pacific Northwest Four Wheel Drive Association in 1965, and are still members to this day. Our club at this time has four member families. In our heyday when everyone was racing, we were in excess of thirty families. At this time, we are somewhat active in fighting land closures, and “anti-access” groups. The club has participated for many years in PNW activities. The placque should have a stamped number on it somewhere, thereby identifying the club member it was assigned to.

This placque was supposed to be returned to the Salem Jeep Club upon termination of membership. This is the property of the Salem Jeep Club, and should never under any circumstances be sold. just for information purposes. The T P shown on the teepee was a way of honoring our sponsor “Taggessell Pontiac” and Jeep in Salem, OR..

More Clowning Around

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

On January 7, 1953, Ringling Circus clown Paul Jerome posed for photographer Joseph Janny Steinmetz.  The reason for shooting a clown in a jeep on the beach is unknown; however, Steinmetz lived in Sarasota, FL, so maybe the location was convenient.  Both photos are from the State Archives of Florida.

Note the jeep has both bowholders and possibly a spare tire carrier on the driver’s side.
