New addition to the vintage 8mm collection - a fantastic old cardboard shop counter display sign for Castle Films, advertising their 8mm and 16mm home movie reels. Love that it features Dracula, The Creature Walks Among Us and Woodpecker from Mars on it. This sign looks to have been unused as the cardboard slots at the base have not been punched out. There was no doubt a second part to this display, which would have formed a stand either at the front or back. No date on it, but I'm guessing it to be late-60's/early-70's. Castle Films changed their name to Universal 8 in 1977, so it is certainly older than that.
