Belgian movie poster advertising the 1956 picture from United Artists, "The Man From Del Rio" (as "Le Tueur et La Belle" in French and "De Dader en De Schone" in Dutch/Flemish). Measures 14x22 inches, one of three standard sizes for Belgian movie posters, the others being 11x17 and 22x34. The top section of the poster is blank, ostensibly for writing the dates that the theater will be showing the film. (The space has been omitted in the display version above and can be seen by clicking through to the enlargement.)

Anthony Quinn and Katy Jurado star in the Robert L. Jacks picture, which was filmed at Gene Autry's Melody Ranch in Placerita Canyon. Both Quinn and Jurado hailed from Mexico; Quinn, who became a Hollywood legend, was born Antonio Rudolfo Oaxaca Quinn on April 21, 1915, in Chihuahua, Mexico, to an Irish-Mexican father and a Mexican mother. Jurado was born January 16, 1924, to a wealthy family in Guadalajara, Mexico, and while she had some major roles in Hollywood (including Gary Cooper's mistress in "High Noon"), she was even better known in her native Mexico, where she continued to appear in Spanish-language soap operas in the 1990s.
