Cinema #15: Killer Lobby Cards (Part 2)
Okay, time for another round of lobby cards. They're great reminders of movies that aren't so well remembered. How many of you have seen and remember Play It As It Lays or They Only Kill Their Masters? Precious few, I'm sure.
There's already a wealth of sites out there specializing in movie posters; however, not too many that resurrect old lobby cards. So, to fill the void, here's some more killer lobby cards, complete with snarky comments from yours truly. Enjoy!
Have you ever seen this movie? Holy cow, it's awful. It's an old Japanese spy movie completely redubbed by Woody with new dialog and a plot about finding an egg salad recipe.
I'd love to see this one, but it's not available on Netflix. From everything I've heard about it, it sounds like a very deep, intelligent and thoughtful film.
Actually came out before Jaws. Sort of a "Shark Week" kinda thing for the early seventies.
Basically like an episode of The Rockford Files. Should've been a TV movie. Netflix will never carry this.
I think "wacky" is the correct word for this movie. With Charles Grodin playing a sex starved husband. (groan)
Here he is - the undisputed man's man of the seventies. The Yin to Leif Garret and Andy Gibb's Yang.
They did a lot of drugs in the seventies. A lot of drugs.
I include this one because it's just a killer lobby card. I really dig the composition in the sidebar. Cool.
This was a great horror movie, and was planned to be the first in a trilogy. However, the sequel killed any hope of a third.
Excellent movie title. Judging by the B&W still, not so excellent of a movie.
