Film Posters of the 50sby Tony Nourmand, Graham Marsh
The fifties was the unforgettable decade in which movies exploded on the screen, more colorful, sexier, and wilder than ever before. Faced with the new challenge of television, the studios conjured up a host of irresistible attractions: Cinemascope, Vista-Vision, and 3D; the sexy Marilyn Monroe and voluptuous Jayne Mansfield; the moody figures of Paul Newman and James Dean; and the emergence of the sci-fi and horror genres.
With more than 250 full-color posters from all over the world, Film Posters of the 50s is a must-have for all film buffs as well as anyone interested in graphic design and advertising.
