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!

This Constantin Belinsky french action movie poster has it all — loaded firearms, a hostage/kidnapping situation with a girl in a bikini held by knifepoint, a tsunami wave about to hit the beach and wipe out a classic muscle car — and then to top it off, a bull’s eye target looming behind the tagline!
Are you ready to get your eyes blown out from an explosion of colors and movie poster passion? Well, you’ve come to the right place because today we are celebrating the work of 1950’s French artist, Constantin Belinsky, who dazzled the pupils of many International movie patrons for years!
Although he wasn’t assigned the best titles — mostly B-movies and genre films — it’s visually apparent that he did the best with what he got! (MoviePosterDB)
