Rare Film Posters



Original Russian 29 1/4 inch x 40 inch Poster for the 1959 Aleksandr Ptushko & Risto Orko Russian/Finnish Fantasy DAY THE EARTH FROZE (SAMPO), loosely based on the events depicted in the Finnish national epic Kalevala and starring Urho Somersalmi, Andris Oshin, Nina Anderson and Jon Powers.

Based on Finnish mythology, this movie traces the exploits of Lemminkäinen as he woos the fair Annikki and battles the evil witch Louhi. Louhi kidnaps Annikki to compel her father to build for her a Sampo, a magical device that creates salt, grain, and gold. When Lemminkäinen tries (and fails) to recover the Sampo, Louhi steals the sun, plunging the world into frozen darkness.
