You Down With MCP?

…yeah, you know me! The wonderful Spanish movie poster trifecta dubbed Estudio MCP (not to be mixed up with The BCM Studio of Italy) — specifically, Ramon Marti, Josep Clave, and Hernan Pico — first appeared on my radar when they were featured in the coffeetable classic, Art of the Modern Movie Poster, by Dave Kehr and Sam Sarowitz, aka Mr. Posteritati.

Sticking to their specialty of film noir and action dramas, the MCP set Español cinemas on fire from the 1950s into the early 1970s with their red hot-blooded designs.
