Favorite Posters of the Day

That *Operation Petticoat* poster is a scream! It is so funny with those goofy expressions that Cary and Tony have! These are great posters, Max.

 

And I really enjoyed the *Clash By Night* one. I watched it earlier today.

 

Sophia is a stunning icon in *Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow*.

 

But my favorite is *Sunday in New York.* I've never seen the poster before. I loved that film. :)

Well, thank you Sue! So pleased you enjoy the posters. I like the "Sunday in New York" poster as well... it appears as if Rod is giving Jane a good tickle! *hehe* Thanks, again!

I just got a look at this thread. I remember seeing posters like them in front of the stand alone theaters back when I was a girl. They always seemed to make the movie seem exciting-unfortunately sometimes more than it actually was. They also helped us figure if the film was one we might want to see or if it was probably "too adult" for us. I hope for more trips down Memory Lane.

 

I can't believe that the one for The Outlaw got past the Breen office in 1943. It would have been "spicy" for a good 20 years afterwards. Now I understand why the movie was so controversial when it came out. I've seen it and am not really impressed except for the music. Classical in a soft porn Western? Who would have thunk it?

 

I tried to watch Les Diaboliques last night but could not make it to the end. It is always fascinating to see how other countries make use of cinema and how it reflects on their cultures. I hope to be able to keep my eyes open all the way through next time.

I'm glad you enjoy the posters. I especially enjoy the ones that look like pulp fiction covers!
