The Promised Landi

Like his contemporaries, René Ferraci and Jouineau Bourduge, Michel Landi came into prominence in the French movie poster world in the mid-1960s, just as photography and offset printing was supplanting traditional illustration.

Undoubtedly most known for his iconic poster of the 1968 Steve McQueen classic, Bullitt, Landi also pumped out a fleet of other popular designs for many of the era’s most memorable films.

Look Who’s Talking

Considering the recent NBC-Conan O’Brien/Jay Leno debacle, I thought I would put up the posters of my favorite talk show-themed movies, The King of Comedy, Talk Radio, and Network. (Unfortunately, the “mad as hell”-speech is actually quite timely.)
