Looking for some cheap art?

I’ve had this bookmarked for a while, but I am so lazy about posting on the blog now that I am a podcasting superstar that I never got around to posting this. For those of you who don’t know, I am a huge movie fan, especially classic movies. I am also becoming a movie poster fan. I do not have many in my small collection, but I have just started. I came across this on USA Today’s Pop Candy blog and it is the top 25 movie posters of all time according to Premiere magazine.

I think you will enjoy these posters because they can be seen not just as advertisements but as pieces of art. In fact I have already searched some of these out and bookmarked pages that have them for sale. The ones that interested me the most were, The Hitch-Hiker, Rosemary’s Baby, Sullivan’s Travels, This Gun for Hire, The Gold Rush, Gilda (va-va-voom), and The Sin of Nora Moran. It’s hard to believe the Nora Moran poster was legal back in 1933. So, check out the best movie posters and maybe even purchase one or two. You can find reproductions of just about any poster without having to pay billions of dollars. Enjoy!!!!!

By the way, I think this poster should be in that top 25, it is my personal favorite right now.
