Kyle In Hollywood's CENSORED Poster Gallery


Recommended Posts

*"You know I've never actually seen THE WORLD'S GREATEST LOVER, but now I want to, for obvious reasons. I hope they treat Valentino with respect, and only mock the frenzied star system, not him personally."* - Bronxgirl48

 

In the film, Carole Kane leaves her husband Rudy and runs away to Hollywood to be with the man she really "loves" - Rudolph Valentino. Rudy follows her and ends up at the film studio (Dom DeLuise as Studio Chief) where she has been hired to be an extra. The studio is having a talent search contest to find "The World's Greatest Lover" and will give the winner a contract. Somehow, Rudy gets entered in to the contest. As they say, Hilarity ensues.

 

I haven't seen the film in a long time. I don't remember Valentino being maligned in any way. Of course, that was all before I had ever seen a Valentino movie or really knew anything about him. I think he could actually be described as "the hero that saves the day".

 

I hope one day TCM will get their hands on it from Fox. I remember it being so much better than *Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother* which TCM showed recently (and didn't watch.)

*"Honestly, are you making these? They are great!"* - JackFavell

*"These are great, Kyle!!"* - Minya

 

Thanks ladies!

Yes, I have been stricken with my personal form of OCD - Obsessive Creative Disorder - and made the special promo "posters" for the Gallery SUTS project. I have one more to post. Then the really "good stuff" begins.

 

I am so glad you let me know you like them.

I'm sure in 1926, some Philadelphians probably got a chuckle from the title of one of those Tom Mix oaters. In Philly parlance, "K&A" refers to the intersection of Kensington and Allegany (or was it "Allegheny"? I haven't been there for a long time), two well-known streets in the Kensington neighborhood of town. That intersection is also a stop on the Market-Frankford elevated line.

 

Of course, it might have been the other way around, and the term "K&A" originated through the Mix movie. I dunno.

*"These are really gorgeous, Kyle - I love the shadows that make the faces look like they were carved out of rock."* - JackFavell

 

Very "statue-esque". There's no doubt that these men were heroes and these posters contribute to that idea.

I didn't know about the "K & A" and Philadelphia connection. Thanks.

 

As there seems to have never been a "K & A Railway" (I googled.), maybe the writer was from Philadelphia and chose that name as an "inside joke".

*"Nice artwork, sir,"* - smileys

 

Thank you, pal.

 

*"...and incredibly beautiful posters, too. Almost makes me want to actually watch a western."* - smileys

 

Whoa! The heat must be getting to you.

You should be watching *The Rainmaker* once a day "for the duration."

 

I hope my Gallery selections for the month continue to please and impress.
