You like movie posters? You like alternative takes on posters, if so enjoy Written in bloods Monday post.
My fav this Monday was:
As an travel agent I so want to book people to these places…
Love the old fashioned posters
Had to nag my brother for a long time before he allowed me to watch Escape from New York, he was afraid that I would be too scared and get nightmare and of course tell on mom and dad that he showed me this movie in that case.
No nightmares but do remember being so amazed by Kurt Russells quick-witted hero and so wanted to be like Plisken when I grew up but instead am a normal travel agent worker, not exactly the same but have kept my inner Plisken around 🙂
This film is listed among The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made in Golden Raspberry Award founder John Wilson’s book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE
The London Underground has made more creative use of poster art than any other commercial organisation in the world. It all goes back to the early 1900’s. Frank Pick was Head of Publicity for the London Underground in 1908 and commissioned hundreds of posters by both popular artists and relatively unknown ones too. Man Ray, David Hockney, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Paul Nash are amongst the many artists who have produced artwork for the tube.
Therefore much of early and even current London Underground posters show how far you can travel on the tube and show the wonderful places you can travel to, particularly when you are not doing your normal 9 to 5 daily commute.
It’s beautiful posters which are so awesome in their ways and art. I miss the old days… 🙂
And then came the 70-80’s horrors with even worse movie titles with Blackula, The Vampyros Lesbos, Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde to name a few.
Have just included some as thumbnails below, but click here for the full lovely beauties in all their glory. Got around 50 horror posters from 1970-1979.
