Film Posters of the 80's: The Essential Films of the Decade. Unfortunately, the layout has two flaws

Film Posters of the 80's: The Essential Films of the Decade. Unfortunately, the layout has two flaws. Some of the two page spreads have the key point of interest right in the middle of the crease. The book also would benefit from a much more thorough discussion of the techniques used in the posters. This book is the third in a series that also covers the 60s and 70s in earlier versions.

The art reproduction is pristine, the scope is international, the styles of both art and film range from the terrific to the trashy. If you're a fan of film from this period, or a fan of commercial art, this is a must-have. It absolutely makes me want the rest of the series!

Graham Marsh, Tony Nourmand. This work includes the best, the sexiest, the coolest film posters from the 1950s: from "Some Like it Hot" to "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"; from "La Strada" to "Roman Holiday".

Graham Marsh, Tony Nourmand. The superb posters in this book present the full range of images-from stark to sizzling-that enticed international cinema audiences in the 1950s

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.

In Tony Nourmand’s book Film Posters of the 50s: The Essential Movies of the Decade, the movie poster takes on a vital role in advertising films of the time: getting people to leave their home (and TVs) and into to the movie theater.

If I were only measuring this book by the 250+ images of movie posters in it, I would say it deserved more than five stars. Unfortunately, the layout has two flaws. Many of the images are reproduced in unnecessarily too small sizes. Some of the two page spreads have the key point of interest right in the middle of the crease. The book also would benefit from a much more thorough discussion of the techniques used in the posters.
This book is the third in a series that also covers the 60s and 70s in earlier versions.
This volume could have been entitled "The Movies Strike Back at Television." The posters emphasize new technologies (like 3-D glasses), lurid promises for the dying "B" pictures, and lush designs to help attract people away from their TV trays. Attractive new stars like Marilyn Monroe and James Dean helped.
Photographic reproduction in these posters is uniformly grim, so those posters which only feature drawings are the best. The most abstract ones appear in European and Japanese versions, and are usually the most outstanding.
A movie poster can help set the mood for the movie experience, and enhance the emotional impact much like music does on the film track. In some cases, these posters seemed to go beyond the movie itself. The poster for War of the Worlds seemed clearly more forbidding and overwhelming than anything I remember from the movie itself.
You will also enjoy recollecting your memories of these movies from looking at the posters.
What was most impressive to me was the way that a poster used a gesture, a moment in a scene, a character, or a design to capture the essence of the whole motion picture. This is the ultimate test of the old saw, "a picture is worth a thousand words." In this case, the best posters are worth many tens of thousands of words, and speak more eloquently than any words could.
Here are some of my favorites: La Dolce Vita; Sunset Boulevard (Polish version); The Bad and the Beautiful (Italian version); A Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (Japanese version); Vertigo; The Man with the Golden Arm; Anatomy of a Murder; Attack of the 50 Foot Woman; The War of the Worlds; The Ladykillers; The Man in the White Suit; Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (French version)(2); Mon Oncle (French version); Moulin Rouge (Polish version); French Can-Can (French version); Casque D'Or (French version); Lust for Life (British version); Kanal (Polish version); The Steel Helmet; The Dam Busters (British version); Reach for the Sky (British version); The Bridge on the River Kwai (British version); From Here to Eternity (French version); Bio Bravo; High Noon; Carmen Jones (Italian version); Gigi; Jailhouse Rock; and On the Waterfront (Italian version).
We are indeed fortunate that Mr. Nourmand has shared his taste and collection with us in this volume.
After you have finished enjoying these images, I suggest that you take a look at the logo for the organization, project, or company you work for. How well does it establish what you are trying to accomplish? You can use these posters as a guide to what is possible.
Be sure to make your visions vividly available to all!

Like the other decade books in this series Film Posters of the 50's is a sensational buy. You could either keep it intact as a collection of posters in a book to show and discuss with friends, or cut the book up and actually have a vast number of posters up on your wall. This book is about a third the size of your standard film poster and most movies are full page colour. Any of them would look great up on the wall. Don't know what the previous reviewer is complaining about, must have confused this book with a similar title or something because this ain't like he describes.
The 50's decade has films by Bogart, Cary Grant, James Dean and Grace Kelly. Alfred Hitchcock made some gems as well. You'll find them all here along with your 50's movies like I Married a Monster From Outer Space, Attack of the 50ft Woman, Creature From the Black Lagoon and The War of the World's.
I wasn't even alive back then but I recognise most of these movies. They're classics. This is a sensational book to own.
