The Thing from Another World (1951) – You got to love those Posters!

Great movie! All freaky 50’s postwar paranoia and anti-communism sheathed cool horror Sci-Fi. I really like this genre. I think I got the bug for it, when looking through a book of old movie posters as a kid.

One thing that old Hollywood always did right was hire good people to do their posters. Bold fonts, interesting layouts and great graphics were the norm 50 years ago. Now it looks like a kid with photoshop put these posters together. Wow I sound like a grandfather.

In my day…
