Love that Alamo poster, colly!


Of cousre, this is from one of the reissues. The original poster was pretty lackluster:

IMHO, anyways.

Never knew that 'Come and See' even had a poster. I always assumed it advertised by word of mouth. ;)

It's about Siamese twins caught between different loyalties in the Cold War. Filmed on top of the Berlin Wall.

Its a decent military trial film thats never been released on a proper DVD - it got Bradford Dillman and Peter Graves a TV series. 8)

A new poster that arrived today:



It's not in excellent condition and has some tears at the bottom, but it'll look good framed. Fantastic artwork, in my opinion. Wish I knew who did it.

Nice. I recently found a cardboard tube of posters I'd thought I'd thrown out years ago. I've got an Italian TO CATCH A THIEF poster.

One of the cheesy character portraits for ARMAGEDDON, and probably the most honest of them all.

I found them on society6.com, which a venue for graphic designers and artists to share their various designs. It's a great place to look if you're seeking out unusual poster/t-shirt designs.

I'm especially fond of the TEMPLE OF DOOM one, too (the artist is Maxime Pecourt, who has also done designs for RAIDERS and LAST CRUSADE in the same style, though I don't find the colors for those posters as pleasing). It looks especially lovely in person.

Cheers. I only previously knew of Mondo.

Mondo does some nice stuff, but it tends to be mightily expensive, and there isn't a lot of it. Society6 has a lot of stuff. Plenty of it is rubbish, but there are some great graphic designers who share their work there.
