Grab your popcorn and a box of Sno-Caps…we’re heading to the theater! Well, in spirit anyway; particularly since it’s the theater of the 1930s.
You know from the Busby Berkeley post back in April that I am a fan of early movie musicals, and I am an early twentieth century girl at heart. So you had to suspect this post was coming sooner or later!
What’s so great about movie posters from the 1930s? What gets me charged up enough to call them eye candy?
- Bold, graphic, often geometric design
- Creative use of the human form
- Luscious colors
- Movie names and tagline content that often remind you “politically correct” is a recent concept
- Men in full make-up…even John Wayne
I found these gems for your viewing pleasure (and mine!)—so get comfy, dim the lights and be sure to turn off your cell phone (unless, of course, you’re using it to read this post!), and climb aboard the time machine!
