  • Film/Art Gallery has a number of original movie posters, (not reprints) and few are more iconic than posters from the 1950s. Regardless if you are interested in starting or building out your own collection, or looking for the perfect gift for your movie buff friend or loved one, Film/Art Gallery is your destination. 

    For many, the 1950s was an iconic decade for fans of cinema. It seems the producers, directors, and actors of the 50s really put their soul into their art, rather than making movies just to sell merchandise as is common now.

    Here are some of the best 1950s Movie Posters that are available for purchase at Film/Art Gallery:

    Roman Holiday

    This lovely film featured actors Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, and was directed by Swiss-German William Wyler. This was Audrey Hepburn's breakout role, and it's a classic comedy.

    We offer a number of versions of this poster, with one of our most favorable posters being a Polish film art iteration, which is rare and is in excellent condition.

    North by Northwest

    Directed by the great Alfred Hitchcock, this 1959 film featuring Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, and James Mason is ranked as one of the best films of all time.

    One version we are offering (again Film/Art Gallery sells only Originals) is an Italian movie poster of Grand and Marie Saint kissing, with her holding a gun as they embrace.

    This is a must-have for any collector.

    Some Like It Hot

    A classic Billy Wilder comedy, this madcap film features Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemon in a classic movie full of laughs and mayhem.

    The most famous poster is a large, half broadsheet, which is in excellent shape and will warm the heart of any 1950s Movie Film Art collector. It features both Monroe, in her voluptuous self, and Curtis and Lemon in Drag.


    Originally produced in 1931 and starring Boris Karloff, we offer a 1950s re-release poster created for theaters. This poster features Karloff as Frankenstein in all his glory holding a woman in a red dress.

    A classic poster and a classic film, this one is from Belgium and is a real prize for a collector.

    Ben Hur

    Winner of the Best Picture Oscar in 1959, Ben Hur was directed by William Wyler and features the marvelous and masculine Charles Heston, whose fictional character was falsely enslaved before becoming a successful charioteer.

    The poster features chariots and their horses, racing around a giant Roman statue, with the words Ben Hur engraved in stone.

    This is another classic, must-have 1950s movie poster.

    12 Angry Men

    Who could forget this Henry Fonda tour de force by director Sidney Lumet, in which Fonda goes against all odds to convince the rest of the jury to find a Puerto Rican teenager innocent.

    The poster features a sliver of 12 angry jurymen, with Fonda at the forefront.

    The poster is mostly black and green, with red lettering for the number 12, and is quite dramatic, and would be a fine asset for any 50s movie collector.
