Not for a film, but this billboard advertising the BBC's Dracula adaptation is pretty clever. Here is a timelapse video:

Relly cool Billboard, Tob! I read about the new Dracula on The Guardian yesterday. Just checked and Netflix in the U.S. may have it starting January 4th!  Looks good.  Okie

What a super printing accomplishment in 1939 in the same land that printed/carved such amazing ancient texts and images!  Thanks for posting, Redman!  Okie

Haha, yes Okie. Matinee Idol is a porn film and these old films have the goods in such posters. Sorry peeps, I should have posted it in posters in film and television a game, but I not here much lately and forgot it

I saw this one on Instagram - looks like someone at Euston Station in London was having a scrape down of posters pasted on top of each other over the years. I wonder if some nice old gems could be recovered if time and care was taken?
