This work includes the best, the sexiest, the coolest film posters from the 1950s: from "Some Like it Hot" to "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"; from "La Strada" to "Roman Holiday". The superb posters in this book present the full range of images-from stark to sizzling-that enticed international cinema audiences in the 1950s. Faced with the new challenge of television, studios conjured up a host of new attractions: Cinemascope, Vista-Vision and 3D, the curves of Marilyn Monroe in "The Seven Year Itch" and "Some Like It Hot" and the moody figure of James Dean in "Rebel Without a Cause". And then there was the elegant Cary Grant, at his peak in films like "To Catch a Thief" and "North by Northwest". The "New Wave" was starting to break-with such European imports as "La Strada" and "Black Orpheus". This was also the era of the great science fiction film: "The Day the Earth Stood Still", "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", and "Forbidden Planet". With more than 250 full-color posters from all over the world and commentary by two leading experts on poster art, "Film Posters of the 50s" is a must have for all film buffs as well as anyone interested in graphic design and advertising.
