April 2017 Vintage Original Movie Posters
Dear Friends & Movie Lovers:
Spring has sprung and although summer doesn't officially start until June, the first Cinespia at Hollywood Forever Cemetery Screening is right around the corner. The 16th season kicks off on May 13th with CHINATOWN (tickets and info can be found here). To celebrate, we've dedicated our monthly Youtube video to CHINATOWN star Faye Dunaway. It includes great posters for some of Dunaway's most popular films, from BONNIE & CLYDE to MOMMIE DEAREST. You can check it out here.
We are also celebrating the life and singular career of the pioneering exploitation auteur Radley Metzger, who died on March 31st at the age of 88. Metzger started out cutting trailers for the arthouse distributor Janus before becoming a director of his own uniquely stylish exploitation films, which were deliriously entertaining (if campy) and usually accompanied by equally delicious posters. Our collection of original Radley Metzger film posters is here.
Finally - we've just uploaded more than 80 new acquisitions to the site, including:
A rare first release French 1 Panel for Jacques Tati's MON ONCLE, with its classic artwork by Pierre Etaix. After years of searching for original release French posters for this film, we finally found the smaller (21"x 30") version of this a couple months ago. That one sold immediately, but just this past month we got our hands on the 44"x 62" size (here)
A unique printer's proof (sans credits) for Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER
A couple of amazing McQueen pieces: an ultra-rare 40"x60" for BULLITT & the original Japanese release THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR
