Tuesday Forgotten (or Overlooked) Films, Television and/or Other Audio/Visuals: 7 Movie Posters

It's movie poster day! (You know how I love great film posters.) I found the following (except for the last one) at the excellent film blog, WHERE DANGER LIVES, where the best film posters are regularly, gorgeously on view. The place is a feast for the eyes, minds and hearts of vintage movie mavens.

  2. Hi, Lyn - I've only seen MURDER MY SWEET and THE STRANGER. But I just love the artwork on these old posters. 'Wonderful' is right. :)

    1. We agree. :) I love all the garish color and design.

  4. Thanks for sharing these. I bought "Somewhere in the Night" purely on my reaction to the poster - oh, and Richard Conte.

    1. Richard Conte - remember him? Steely eyed and jawed. :) I want to redecorate my walls with movie posters. But the thought of moving things around, finding additional wall space is daunting.

  5. These posters are definitely the cat's meow! They're great!
    This reminds me to try to find some of these oldies, but goodies.

    1. Well THE STRANGER is available on youtube - the entire film. If you can find it, give it a look. It's a melodramatic goodie. The others I don't know. I've only seen two of these so can't say much more except that I love the posters. :)

  7. Marvellous poster art - thanks Yvette! I really, really wish ALIAS NICK BEAL were available on DVD darn it!

    1. You're welcome, Sergio. I must say that I don't think I've ever seen the Nick Beal movie but something about it seems so familiar. Milland plays 'the devil' right?

  8. Yvette, you must be reading my mind, because all the movie posters you posted are all favorites of mine! I especially like ALIAS NICK BEAL, a wicked little thriller, and of course MURDER, MY SWEET has long been a Team Bartilucci favorite! Great pix, my friend! :-D

    1. Thanks, Dorian. As I mentioned, ALIAS NICK BEAL seems so familiar though I can't actually remember seeing it. But MURDER MY SWEET I know I saw - though, sadly, I can't remember much about it either. Old age is NOT for sissies!!

  9. Hi, Yvette,

    The image of Thomas Mitchell reminds me that my beloved grandfather always wore a Homburg hat that looked like the very one in the poster. But now I'm looking at the next poster and wondering how a fez got to Shanghai?!

  10. Oh the fez - love it. That's why I love this poster. Victor Mature in a fez. Well, you know, Mark, the fabulous, sinister, mysterious East. It's all the same to movie viewers or at least so the movie studios thought.

  11. I was going to say, "they're the cat's pajamas," but I thought that was so dated that my mother didn't even say it. So, "cat's meow" had to do it.

    I wish I could find some of these movies though. Never saw Alias Nick Beal or some of the others. Saw The Stranger a few times. Orson Welles is definitely good at playing evil.
