Summary
  • "The images in this book present the full range of the poster art that served to entice world wide cinema audiences to the movies of the decade. Faced with the new challenge of television, the studios conjured up a host of new attractions: Cinemascope, Vista-Vision and 3D, the curves of Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot and the moody figures of Paul Newman in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause. And then there was the elegant Cary Grant, at his peak in films like To Catch a Thief and North by Northwest. The "New Wave" was starting to break - such unsettling European imports as La Strada and Black Orpheus were weaving their spell upon the same audiences who giggled at Audrey Hepburn's antics in Roman Holiday
  • This was also the era of the great science fiction films: The Day the Earth Stood Still, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Forbidden Planet. The posters for these classic films provide a fascinating visual history of this great decade in film history."--Jacket
