    Not particularly rare or valuable, just nicely designed; the BFI poster for the reissue for AMOLAD about 7 years back;

    Never really thought that much about it,

    I don't even remember Belinda actually wearing a bikini in the film.......

    but I haven't been able to watch it recently, the video's lost it's marbles......

    I much prefer movie posters when they used illustrations and paintings etc as opposed to modern posters which generally use photogrphic images in some kind of montage. Im thinking of the Bond movie posters right up to the Roger Moore films, those stylised illustrations with lots of action packed into them were great and Roger looked much slimmer than in the films themselves! I think there is a style of film poster art tha thas long gone and there were notable artists of the day who were employed to paint or sketch illustrations for film posters. There are numerous books around on this subject showing many old film posters in all their glory and in fact the collecting of rare original film posters has become big business with many rare and original posters changing hands at auction for very large amounts of money, tens of thousands of pounds in some cases! I tend to like posters of films I have actually enjoyed or which have become iconic images themselves, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" poster for example or "Scarface" (Al Pacino version) or "The Godfatrher", they have become more than mere posters but immediatly identifiable logos for the film. I have a few posters hanging up around my house which I bought for about £4.oo each in about 1974 with earnings from my paper round, I had them valued last year at a specialist gallery in London and was astounded to find that my posters are worth £600+ EACH!! I would never sell them because I enjoy having them but isn't it incredible that film poster art is now so desirable and trendy to have hanging on the walls at home.

    Very few modern film posters can compare to classic ones of the 1930/40/50s. There is an excellent book on Ealing posters, I think it's called Projecting Britain. Good example include The Man in the White Suit and Dead of Night.

    Mind you, I wouldn't mind a copy of the poster used for this DVD cover....



    Not a fan of the film, particularly, fine though it is...but a copy of this poster holds the auction record for film posters.... $453,000 is a nice nest-egg....

    There's a coincidence. I've got that one as well.

    And the BFI, silly people, didn't want to sell any despite a lot of people asking for them. So all the ones that people have were sneaked out of the back doors of cinemas where the restored film was shown.



    I like this one as well





    I've got a few others, mainly P&P of course, but I don't have the room to hang them all. I have a few hung though like an original AMOLAD poster



    Some of the European posters can be very artistic and pleasing to the eye.

    I've got a Red Shoes poster from Germany which is lovely



    Apart from that clunky text



    The Swedish one is very nice as well

    Very interesting, fascinating even, but it makes most people feel very uncomfortable. It's now regarded as a classic of the genre, one of the first of the genre as well. It's a physchological horror film. There isn't lots of blood and gore. There are killings but you don't see most of them in any detail. Its power is in the way it makes you feel sympathy and understanding for a serial killer.



    By modern standards it's quite crudely made in some ways, yet in others it's very advanced for its time. And remember that it was made in 1960. That's nearly 50 years ago. But will as many people still be interested in the blood and gore, in-your-face shocker horror films 50 years after they are made?

    It's a great film of it's time. Saw it when it first came out, thought it was great then and was very suprised when Anglo Amalgamated were, more or less forced to withdraw it after a very short time.



    Makes you laugh that the Critics who slaughtered it, now think it's a classic. Hypocrites!!
