WoWza! Thank you for the "click-on" larger version option. I believe I've read hereabouts that

*The Stunt Man* is one of their favorite movies.

Could be you for all I remember. I just remember reading it and thinking that I will have to sit down and watch it someday - if it's good enough for whoever it was, I might like it.

I was one of the folks who expressed a love for the movie. But that was a long time ago, I'm not sure if I'd like it now. But I certainly love that bizarre-yet-beautiful poster, Kyle. Thanks.

Chief,

 

Thanks for the *Stunt Man* poster. I haven't seen the film in more years than I can remember, but I love it. Had the soundtrack on vinyl back in the day!

Oh my goodness! I do hope this film festival makes a LOT of money so they will keep doing it (Or better yet, take it on the road) I will have to save my pennies for a future festival.

Hi you. Happy to see you in these parts this week.

 

I hope The Classic Film Festival is a success too. It is the biggest thing to happen to my neighborhood since the Oscars moved into the Kodak Theater a few years back. And this MAY be even bigger than that because one doesn't have to be invited to attend.

 

If you haven't seen the Festival website, definitely check it out.

http://www.tcm.com/festival/

 

and here's the most complete line-up announcement (pdf format)

http://www.tcm.com/festival/_pdf/festival/TCM_FestivalOverview.pdf

 

And keep checking back here for more fun poster images. This thread will run at least until the day the Festival opens. Maybe longer.

"Strange that Monroe gets top billing."

 

Although MM's role in Some Like It Hot might not have been the biggest of the three leads, she was by far the biggest star of the three, and was expected to bring in the most paying customers. So she definitely would have top billing in this.

 

I love all the old poster art, and enjoyed Saul Bellows' pop art artwork for All About Eve. He also did the artwork for Mankiewicz' previous film NO WAY OUT, which preceded AAE to theaters by 3 months or so. It was in a similar style as AAE's poster, even more stark, with just Linda Darnell's eyes and arrows as in AAE's. These proved to be quite influential, as the poster for Breathless demonstrates.

I'd love to hear Tony Curtis discuss this film. Actually, I'd love to hear him on any topic. There aren't many of that generation left, with those kind of insights.
