Mad Men 4 Charity

Guess what’s up for sale on Ebay this week? Mad Men props! You can buy Don Draper’s drapes, sofas, lamps, and much more, including Joan’s and Betty Lou’s dresses, too! And it all goes for a good cause.

Steinbrenner Dead at 80.

George Steinbrenner ran the New York Yankees more like an old-timey movie studio mogul tyrant than your typical baseball owner — but you can’t argue with success. After buying the Yanks for a mere $10 million back in the early 70’s, he turned the club into the most valuable franchise in professional sports, now estimated to be worth $1.5 billion.

However, aside from the numerous New York Yankees movies that have been made over the years, what most non-baseball fans probably remember most is Larry David’s spoof of him on Seinfeld.

Super Salk!

Although not as well-known or, quite frankly, important as Jonas Salk, his polio-fighting namesake, Larry Salk (1936-2004) (no relation) made his own profound impact on the world of key art. He got his start in fashion illustration and then quickly evolved into the world of movie poster work, where he designed over 165 one sheets for various film studios and distributors.

But, ironically, what Salk is probably going to be most remembered for is his infamous oil portrait of Kramer from an episode of the 90’s hit TV show, Seinfeld.

Robert Culp (1930-2010)

Robert Culp died today at the age of 79. I mostly remember him from that campy 80’s TV show, The Greatest American Hero and later when he was relegated to playing cranky lawyers and executives — but he had a pretty distinguished career as a heartthrob back in the day. And some pretty colorful posters, too! May he rest in peace.

Look Who’s Talking

Considering the recent NBC-Conan O’Brien/Jay Leno debacle, I thought I would put up the posters of my favorite talk show-themed movies, The King of Comedy, Talk Radio, and Network. (Unfortunately, the “mad as hell”-speech is actually quite timely.)

Celebrity Dog Whisperer Rehab

It’s official: BET is doing a reality show with infamous dog killer/NFL star, Michael Vick.


I’m a huge fan of Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, so I thought I’d put up all of the series posters like one big happy family which, obviously if you watch the show, is not often the case.
