Summer fun at Cinespia, Saul Bass, Swedish knockouts, Fellini, Bresson, 007 and more
Dear Friends & Movie Lovers:
Hello from Hollywood, where the Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery Screenings are in full swing, with a schedule that includes THELMA & LOUISE, THE GRADUATE and an L.A. Pride screening of TO WONG FOO... next weekend. Here's the poster for ALIEN (screening June 16th), brilliantly-designed (by Steve Frankfurt & Philip Gips), with the famous tagline: "In space, no one can hear you scream"
Otto Preminger's ADVISE & CONSENT was released this week in 1962, accompanied by a publicity campaign that represented one of Preminger and Saul Bass' most fruitful collaborations. Bass created several different images to promote the film, but this design - depicting the film's intent to "rip the lid off" of the machinations within the U.S. Capitol - was the main artwork used in ads and posters throughout the world.
Check out our initial group of Saul Bass silkscreens - which includes his extraordinary unused artwork for THE MAGNIFICENT 7 - by clicking on the images or here.
