Movie Poster Art

I love movie posters from the 1930's. They have a style, half photographic and half painted, that visually appeals to me. I have been tempted to buy certain posters, even when I think the movie is only so-so, just because I love the artwork. Some examples:

One of my favorite Harlow posters. Not my favorite Harlow movie.

My all time favorite Crawford poster. I thought the movie was blah. Look at that hair! And I like the script at the top.

I love the look of her face, although not the skin tone.

I love the poster and the movie in this case. Ann Sheridan is just beautiful.

A little over the top, but still gorgeous.

I just like the yellow, and the heads of the cast members.
