For A Few Dollars More…

It’s that time of year again –– Heritage Auctions is putting on its Vintage Movie Poster Signature Auction in Beverly Hills, July 25-26.

And if you’re looking forward to Tarantino’s Django Unchained, the godfather of the spaghetti western, Clint Eastwood, will be dialing for dollars!

Tarantino Meets Django!

What do you know? Just last week, we featured the beautiful Italian movie posters by Symeoni and Gasparri from the 1960s spaghetti western, Django — and now comes word that Quentin Tarantino has just finished his latest script, Django Unchained, which will surely be a bloody, modern Southern-ized update on the much-heralded, though little-seen classic

Franco Spaghetti-O!

He is the man with no first name (at least one that I could find!) and goes by the nom de plume, P. Franco. But what’s more important is that this Italian illustrator mastered the movie poster art of the spaghetti western (no relation, of course, to Franco-American, maker of SpaghettiO’s).

Although Franco’s credits are chock full of Italian B-movie shoot ’em-ups, much like his poster buds, Symeoni and Gasparri — he also drew a few Hollywood classics, such as Dirty Harry and The Seven Year Itch.
