Like most movie stars, even great poster artists sometimes did the work for a paycheck. Case in point: this scary-looking Mexican horror flick by Italian legend, Ezio Tarantelli, called Korang: Night of the Bloody Apes — as he appears alongside his weird French cousin.
In honor of yesterday’s big win by the U.S. soccer team at The Womens World Cup, here’s a few silly soccer-themed movie posters from such great Italian artists as Averardo Ciriello (left) and Ezio Tarantelli (right).
(Btw, I tried, but couldn’t find any pre-70’s vintage movie posters featuring female soccer players!)
We’ve heard of the great Tarantino, but what about Ezio Tarantelli? This illustrious Italian artist created a whole slew of “bella” foglios and locandinas for lots of 60s and 70s B-movies (much like Sandro Symeoni and Antonio Mos), including many spaghetti westerns — and he also had an inglorious basterd poster of his own design called Bastardo Vamos A Matar!
