Welcome to Film/Art Gallery, where you'll find thousands of exceptional vintage film posters from around the world: everything from well-known classics to rare and unique cult titles. We're located in Los Angeles, and if you'd like to drop by and view any poster, just contact us for an appointment. For more information click here. Thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site - Matthew McCarthy, Owner.
Old film posters are more than just a good conversation piece. They are a good investment and a way to bring more joy to your home or workplace. Movie poster art is now recognized as one of the leading art forms of the 20th century, and these vintage movie posters show more than they tell. For many films, the original movie posters had to distill 2 hours or more of film into a single image.
Purchasing authentic movie posters is now just like purchasing art by Monet or Van Gogh. Old movie posters are rare, and their condition dictates their price to a certain extent. For a true classic film, check out our “Blow Up” movie poster selection.
Saul Bass Archive - November 2019
We've got some new releases from the Saul Bass Archive, including - for the first time - the sublime, iconic silkscreen for MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM, featuring Saul's original, unaltered design for the film (before United Artists added photos of Sinatra, Kim Novak and Eleanor Parker) But first, we want to say a huge thanks to everyone at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Margaret Herrick Library for last week's event "Words On Film: Inside the Saul Bass Collection".
Several of Saul Bass' silkscreens were on display, along with treasures from the Academy's huge Saul Bass collection and some personal items from the Bass family. We discussed Saul's work and life, had fun with some of Saul's vintage stamps and Jennifer Bass signed copies of her monumental monograph 'Saul Bass: A Life in Film & Design' (we have a handful of signed copies available on the site as well). It was a special night and we were grateful to be a part of it. The event immediately sold out, so we couldn't invite everyone, but we're planning more events for next year, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Saul's birth. And there'll be room for everyone! Stay tuned. #saulbass100
