OK, by popular demand (one man, one voice), I'll post some of my favorite posters here.
No order, no concept, just some favorite artworks & films. If you're interested in certain
titles / directors / actors, just name them... Mainly 50s/60s, some 70s maybe.
30s/40s I don't have THAT much...
Not sure people here care for it that much, we'll see (there's a forum just for posters,
and also two or three nice facebook groups)

Positive feedback!


There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

 ;D ;D
No, I don't think I'll continue this... I guess the one or two members who
appreciate it won't justify the time I'd have to invest, I work 6 days a week anyway these days...
It's the wrong forum for memorabilia.
Few more nevertheless...

I love film poster art. And you've put on some great stuff on here.

I was particularly pleased to see the German poster for Vincent Price's 'House of Usher.' It's the first time I've seen that one. The French did a fabulous one for Price's 'The Abominable Dr Phibes.' You can actually see that it's a Vincent Price image instead of the Phibes masked figure you usually see on the poster for the film. I collect Vincent Price images on one of my IMDb lists but I have to make do with the present ones that IMDb put up on their pages for various movies. I wish I could get that 'Die Verfluchten' poster, that  you have on here, on my VP image list. Another fabulous Price Usher poster is for the 1987 documentary of VP called 'The Sinister Image.'

Ah, a Vincent Price fan. So am I, of course :). (I could get another HOUSE OF USHER, but's not a cheapie as you can imagine...)
A few more for you, not all that great, but the man truly was...

Aw thanks for those fabulous Vincent Price posters. I shall keep returning to this topic and wallowing in these images. I think that other countries showed more imagination in promoting these films. They all new to me. Although I notice the German 'Tales of Terror' is fairly similar to the current IMDb poster for it. But it's still great to check out any variations. Thanks once again.

That was my exact thought!
