The Original Rollergirl!

Years before Heather Graham skated circles around audiences during her star-making turn as Rollergirl in Boogie Nights, there was a 1972 AIP/Roger Corman-produced shlock-flick called Unholy Rollers that gave audiences “A locker room look at the toughest broads in the world!”.

It certainly doesn’t have the looks of a cinema classic, but I think these Italian movie posters (signed by an artist named Aller) definitely do the picture justice. (via EmP)

Happy St. Valentine’s Day Massacre!

I know it isn’t exactly romantic considering today’s holiday, but I’ve always loved this Boris Grinsson-designed French grande of Roger Corman’s cult Capone classic, Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre (1967).

I Hop Movie Posters!

In honor of National Pancake Day, I have a very special treat for you…

Meet Albert Kallis, the man who was not only one of the founding fathers of IHOP (International House of Pancakes), he also happens to be a distinguished designer of movie posters. Back in the late 50’s, he was hand-picked by Roger Corman to be the art director of AIP and do all of the advertising and posters for their low-budg flicks. This guy was so busy that he even hired Reynold Brown to finish the job on the classic Attack of the 50 Foot Woman one-sheet.

But that’s not all. This one man flipping crew now devotes most of his time to producing non-profit documentaries and many other charitable works not involving maple syrup. What a colossal stud!
