The Great Gatsby Returns!

On the eve of the high-profile release of The Great Gatsby remake, The New York Times recently discussed how retailers like Barnes & Noble and WalMart were having a classic New School vs. Old School debate on whether to feature the movie tie-in edition (below, left) or the original book cover art (right) for their shelves. (NYT)

Perhaps even design legend, Saul Bass, might’ve been inspired by Gatsby, too, when you look at his 1960s one-sheet for Bonjour Tristesse. And just in case you missed it (or are a loyal Bing fan), Mr. Bass was given the Internet’s highest honor yesterday with a Google Doodle tribute on the search engine king’s main page. (Guardian)

Ballester and Bass

Not too many movie poster fans mix up the rich tapestries of Italian artist, Anselmo Ballester (left), with the minimalist master, Saul Bass (right) — but here’s a strange similarity (although to be fair, the one-sheet for Phase IV, Saul Bass’s one and only feature directing credit, wasn’t done by the great Bass himself)…(Eatbrie)

Happy Alcatraz Anniversary!

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the three prisoners who escaped Alcatraz Island Penitentiary back in 1962, but were never found or heard from again — unless you saw Clint Eastwood’s portrayal in Escape From Alcatraz. And the arresting one-sheet was done by 1970′s-80′s star illustrator, Birney Lettick.

So whether you’re stuck in jail today or free as a bird, enjoy this ration of Alcatraz movie posters, including an early Boris Grinsson french poster for the never-before-seen (at least to my eyes), Alcatraz Island

Dial M For Ripoff?

Eagle-eyed Neil Jaworski spotted the Saul Bass (The Human Factor) homage on this new book cover for Tom Watson’s Dial M For Murdoch, which ironically chronicles the Fox founder’s hacking scandal…(MOPO)

Django Bass!

Quentin Tarantino has gone Saul Bass on our ass (or perhaps it was a combo platter of Rene Ferracci’s Wild Bunch and Thief of Paris that caught his eye) with the new teaser for his upcoming spaghetti western, Django Unchained. (ImpAwards)
