FILM NOIR: FRENCH POSTER STYLE

Happy holidays! Here are a dozen French posters for various American crime / noir films — a few from my very own walls! These are all French Grande size, or 47" x 63", a few featuring poster art by the extraordinary Boris Grisson and Rene Peron. These are all cleaned up and sparkly for your right-clicking pleasure. Enjoy, you dirty rats!

  1. I love cinema poster art. So many styles; nouveau, deco, mid-century; and THEN you've got all the great stars!
    Nice post.

  2. Awesome site. I'm a new pulp writer, and a huge fan of the classic noir pulp and 30s pulp covers. These movie posters are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

    BTW, I've added this blog to my New & Reviews over at my pulp writing blog at http://seanhtaylor.blogspot.com.

    Just wanted you to know.

  3. Wonderful! Why are foreign posters so much better than the American variety? Such vivid color. One of my favorites is Bogart's: In a Lonely Place, from Spain.
