^ I like seeing non movie posters too in the wild   thumbsup.gif

More film dodgyness - Hollywood Boulevard (1976)

Listening to the films commentary track they say the posters were Joe Dante's - the co-director of the film

Not sure how any other film screen grab will fit more posters in it than this!

Naked, unprotected posters just stuck up as movie background!  How cool is that, Steve?!  Cool post.  Okie

Okie, try watching CONTAGION today. Or better yet, don't. It's way too close to what's happening today. Talk about prophetic!

Tonight and Every Night (1945)


^1939 recruitment poster
from V&A: 'This early recruitment poster for the Auxilery Territorial Service (A.T.S) aimed to show how women could be just as much a part of the military war effort as men. The A.T.S. was the women's branch of the British Army. This female soldier is dressed in military uniform and her marching steps are echoed in the column of male soldiers marching in line behind. In reality, at the start of the war A.T.S members were mainly employed as cooks, cleaners and secretaries as they were banned from battle. Later in the war, members of the ATS were called on as radar operators and to form part of anti-aircraft crews.'
