Look For the Silver Linings…

If you need a visual to differentiate today’s movie posters with one-sheets from the 1940s, then look no further than last year’s Oscar darling, Silver Linings Playbook, compared with the Boris Grinsson-designed French poster for Look For the Silver Lining (1949)…

Vive Sara Montiel!

It has not been a good week for high-profile women as we’ve already lost Margaret Thatcher and Annette Funicello — and it’s only Tuesday.

And now comes word that Sara Montiel, the Spanish actress of Vera Cruz and other English language films, has died at the age of 85. In terms of crossing over to the Hollywood mainstream, Ms. Montiel was before her time — however, as you can see below, her attractive portfolio of movie posters are timeless! (Tango art by Harfort (top left), Carmen by O’Kley (top middle) and Mac Gomez (top right), and La Belle De Mexico by Constantin Belinsky.) (DHD)
