One of our favorite graphic designers and go-to’s for inspiration, Midnight Marauder, has created an online poster exhibition celebrating maverick film director Robert Altman and his films.
“The purpose of this exhibition was to pay homage to Altman the man and Altman the filmmaker. Working on his vast body of Films in the old traditions of some of my favorite poster designers. Some of my biggest Influences as a designer have come from the Eastern European (Polish, Czech and German) posters of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Artists such as Hans Hillman, Isolde Monson-Baumgat, Karel Vaca and Roman Cieslewicz just to name a few. It is with that in mind that I have worked on over 50 + posters for this project. Carefully picking the right colors, fonts and composition was crucial for this project to succeed. Focusing on Altmans’ many lively characters and Themes, jumping from genres to genres was a big challenge. I wanted to be limited with my resources, not relying on film stills all the way. Thinking outside the box was very important, but not over doing it was equally important.
Along the way I learned a lot about Altman the man, his passion for filmmaking was enormous and his many troubles with the Hollywood Studio system. His love for his many different acting troupes, his Dailies that were opened to pretty much anybody, have become legendary. His failures and flops, turned into cult classics and masterpieces. Ultimately he lived to fight another fight. He had amazing support from his colleagues, close friends and producers, but especially his wife Katryn Altman and his family.” —Midnight Marauder

CASANOVA 70 (1965) - MARCELLO MASTROIANNI’s MOVIE POSTERS (Part 1)

We clearly anticipate trends as we said last week we would be focusing on MARCELLO MASTROIANNI movies this week. The Cannes Film Festival just published the poster for its 67th edition featuring our beloved icon!!!

This 10 part blog will focus on on his solo movies (excluding the ones he shot with Sophia Loren and/or Vittorio de Sica - which will be treated next week - as well as 8 &1/2 and La Notte treated previously - see our blog archives)

MM is a modern time Casanova, having conquered the hearts of the most beautiful women in the world so it seems natural to start with the movie where he plays the ultimate seducer.

Directed by Mario Monicelli, the movie sees MM playing a UN soldier traveling the world and seducing as many women as he can in dangerous places (watch trailer here).

The list of his conquests is enough to make any man jealous:  Virna Lisi (see Part 6), Marisa Mell and last but not least Michele Mercier whose flawless backside is featured in the Italian fotobusta below

Along that image you can find probably the coolest MM poster ever made for the Japanese release of the movie as well as the US half sheet and the colorful Danish poster.

All our other MARCELLO MASTROIANNI posters are here

If you like this entry, check the other 9 parts of this week’s Blog as well as our Archives and all our NEW POSTERS

In April 2014 all the posters of Italian movies are On SALE
