I wish I knew how to post images here, because I'd show you guys
some of my favorite posters to some of my favorite movies. A lot
of these films are probably considered forgotten or obscure nowadays.
Anyway, about the taglines... Here's a collection of fun (and amusing)
multiple tags that were used on various posters for the same film.
It's a 60's actioner (one of my favorites). Guess the title.

YOU DON'T KILL FOR WOMEN!
YOU DON'T KILL FOR DIAMONDS!
YOU KILL BECAUSE YOU'RE PAID FOR IT!

BRUTES! SAVAGES! HEROES!
THEY'RE MERCENARIES....THEY'RE PAID TO DO A JOB!

A STRIKE FORCE OF CRACK MERCENARIES FIGHT
THE HOTTEST BATTLES IN ALL THE BLAZING FURY
OF TODAY'S STRIFE-TORN CONGO!

I'm sort-of wishing that posters would take advantage of perspective more often.







Pat Brady manages it in his comic strip "Rose is Rose" on a pretty regular basis.

Ahhh. John Berkey. Another great movie poster artist.
He made me go and see KING KONG with that magnificent poster that cheated just a little bit!
Well okay, it cheated a helluva lot, but it's still a great image.
Remember the free STAR WARS poster by Berkey that came with the double LP?
I must hunt that out from the attic.

I have an awesome b-movie poster collection I wish I could share here, but am unable to find most online. I'll see if I can dig some up on Google.

Only one of my five taglines was guessed. Here is an additional clue for each--the film's composer.

Here are five poster taglines. Guess the films they describe. Hint: all are 1965 films.

Here's the next set of taglines. All from 1964 films:

1500 miles of heroism and incredible adventure!

Beware the Eyes That Paralyze!!!

The thunder of war split them!
The fires of passion burnt them!
The swords of barbarians bled them!
The evil of tyranny toppled them!

Look into this face . . . somewhere among the squirming, teeming terrors in this orgy of evil . . . is the thing, whose vile desire she must obey . . . or those she loves will scream out their lives on a bloodstained altar of horror!

He swore he’d never touch her again and then she whispered his name and he was lost.

Coming in late as usual but yes I totally agree with the initiator of this thread. I had the intention of starting the exact same thread myself but you beat me to it. Every time when I pass a filmposter anywhere I'm struck by the utter cheapness of it. Cheap photoshopping with this decade's one trick pony sauce of near black and white images coated with a monochromatic filter job. Cheap lazy unimaginative in other words: this decade.

I didn't like the posters of the 80s such as the "Goonies" or "Indiana Jones" but this is even worse.

D.S.

Old posters are so much better than anything you see these days many where great works of art not like today's poor efforts there is no comparison.

Love old Italian posters.

I just picked up this three-sheet for the bargain-basement price of $78.
