Looks like I am the one to start :lol:
These are the post cards I have. First the direct movie tie-ins:

File comment: From "RED BADGE OF COURAGE".
Same pic as still # 1512-148.

File comment: From "DRUMS ACROSS THE RIVER".
It looks like one of the promotional series of stills (the ones numbered with "AD"), but I do not have that still so I do not know the still number.

File comment: From "TO HELL AND BACK".
Same pic as still # 1769-1AD.
Please note the mis-spelling of Audie's name, and that is a card issued by Universal!

I have this one as a still as well, but it doesn't have a number, so the number I assigned it is AM-P7x

I just realized that I posted a cropped image of this one:

And here is a curiosity. Same picture, different text. This one is a scan from eBay; not one from my collection, but I thought y'all would get a kick out of the different spelling of Audie's name. I believe it was from Yugoslavia.

I agree ... the spelling on that last one is great and worth a good chuckle. :lol:

Here is a postcard I just added to my collection

These two scans are from eBay. Several others have similar printed text on the back, but this is the only one I have that was mailed. I think the "signature" is interesting. Obviously a stamp; not pre-printed.

Boy, would I LOVE to pay $1 for an 11 x 17 of this pic :lol: :lol: :lol: Do y'all think that if I wrote to Universal . . . . . .
