Golden Gate Bridge Poster Bash!

This weekend marks the 75th Anniversary of the great Golden Gate Bridge — so here’s a movie poster tribute to one of America’s most beautiful landmarks. That said, the glorious International Orange-painted bridge has dealt with its share of troubled waters over the years as 11 men were killed during its original construction — and it was also reported to be America’s #1 suicide destination in The New Yorker, which also inspired the compelling, but controversial documentary, The Bridge.

Regardless of its tragic history though, this iconic monument of early 20th Century manpower is still a stunner — happy birthday, Golden Gate!

Penguin Books is celebrating its 75th Anniversary in the publishing business by releasing a set of 100 postcards of their most memorable book covers and I thought I would include some here since book jackets are like the literary cousins of movie posters.
