Perfect Valentines & Anniversary Gifts January 17 2014
With Valentines coming fast, we thought it would be a perfect time to highlight some of our most romantic posters.
Original film posters make for some wonderfully original gifts and those in this selection lend themselves particularly well to Valentines and Anniversaries, especially that all important 1st year paper Anniversary!
What man wouldn't think he has the perfect partner if he received an original classic James Bond poster. From Russia With Love is particularly appropriate and the artwork on the US 1 Sheet Style B is our favourite.
A list such as this would be incomplete without the inclusion of the iconically romantic The Thomas Crown affair poster artwork. The US artwork is both bold and romantic at once.
Who does't like a bit of swashbuckling action and the artwork on The Prisoner of Zenda poster is especially romantic
More super swashbuckling, bold and risqué artwork feature on this US 1 Sheet for 50s film Crossed Swords. Starring Errol Flynn and "Italy's Marilyn Monroe" Gina Lollobrigida. Who couldn't like a poster with the tagline "No castle wall too strong... No Boudoir window too high" and, better still, featuring the quote "Give me a fortress to win and a wench to woo"!
"In all your life you've seen no portrayals to match the thrill of the unquenchable love of Joan Crawford for Van Heflin in 'Possessed'". Stunning artwork on this 40s film noir.
"Bursting the floodgates on emotion... Shattering all barriers of race and time... Sweeping everything before it in its torrential Power...!" Smashing stuff. Beautiful, romantic imagery and some great typography feature on the US 1 sheet poster for The Rains of Ranchipur, starring Lana Turner and Richard Burton.
"SHE who must be obeyed!... SHE who must be loved!... SHE who must be possessed!"
The stunning Ursula Andress features boldly against a backdrop of flames on the US 1 sheet for 60s Hammer classic She, making it one of the favourites from that period. And with that tagline it makes for a great, tongue-in-cheek Valentines or anniversary present.
What lady wouldn't be charmed by Clarke Gable and Sophia Loren's It Started In Naples hanging on her wall. Gable's penultimate film is possibly one of the most romantic comedies ever made and this UK quad features some wonderfully schmaltzy rich artwork to match.
