Friday's Foreign Film Poster

Italian poster for Billy Wilder's comedy A FOREIGN AFFAIR starring Jean Arthur, Marlene Dietrich and John Lund.


  1. Okay, now I'm going to be critical! I think the portrait and cityscape are great, but from a design standpoint (if I had been the art director) I would have had the grouping of people blend in with a little more subtleness.

    Having said that, I always have empathy for artists who are asked to make a montage from a long laundry list. There's almost always a better design solution.

  2. Oh, it's not a great poster, I agree Mark. I just picked it because I like the painting of Marlene Dietrich.

    I could never do successful drawing montages. I'm much better at the collage sort of thing. Haven't done any in ages, though I've been meaning to.
