Tuesday is Movie Day

That's right, today is the second installment of Movie Tuesday. This is a chance for me to find my favourite film poster from the collection of movies I've admired the artwork for. The majority of these posters are the hand painted variety rather than digitally created ones, which I prefer to some degree because of the vintage feel it gives to the movie.

This week gives praise to one of the coolest films from the 50s which probably became the kindling for men with fantasies of giant women. That's right this week's favourite is from the movie "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman".
This film poster is a good example of explaining the plot through art in the simplest way possible. Of course it wasn't too hard back in the 50s as the plots weren't as ellaborate as they are now. 

The poster has a James Bond-esque feel to it which is part of the reason as to why I find it one of the most inspirational print pieces out there. Everyone is so caught up in digital arts these days that it would be refreshing to see some creativity take some talent from the past and repurpose it. Imagine a business card with this kind of artwork applied. Impressive right?

This film poster was created by the great Reynold Brown. As you can see from the link, plenty of his works revolved around the 50's fashionable sci-fi movies. Check him out.
