Foreign Film Poster Friday

 Italian poster for a Bette Davis classic, DARK VICTORY.


  1. A bold graphic and a wonderful likeness. I like the way the composition leads the eye down to the name. The red lips and red "Bette Davis" work as a unit, and I don't think it's a mistake here that the name is perfectly aligned with the lips.

  2. I don't either, Mark - now that you mention it. :) At first I thought the film was NOW, VOYAGER because of the shadow across the eyes...

    It is a wonderful likeness of what I think, in many ways, is a much underappreciated actress.

    I wonder who the artist was.


Your comment will appear after I take a look.
