Cinema #29: 1970s Lowbrow Movie Art (Part 2)




As was often the case in these low budget flicks, the poster was the best thing about the film had to offer.  If
a movie lived up to its poster, you knew it was good.  As with the last post on the subject, I've cut away the pesky words and honed in on the paintings for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy.



 When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth (1970)

  Vampires of Vogel (1975)

 The Street Fighter (1974)

 Teenage Pajama Party (1977)

The Bees (1978)

  2. "Vampires of Vogel" - that's Debbie Harry in the middle, right? And why does the vampire looming up behind her look like a Muppet?

  3. You couldn't see any of these ads now. Not because of Evil PC Police, but the sheer cheapness of the industries that profit. Cost-cutters ...now that's some grade-A evil ...

  4. Nice to see that even early man had instructor-led aerobic classes (lower right corner) in the days of WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH!

  5. So who's the artist for the header graphic? Looks very MAD Magazine, Jack Rickard-ish but not.(?)

    I maintain that nothing, ever, could be as awesome as the "When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth" poster.

    That "Night of Dark Shadows" illustration just might be the worst montage I've ever seen. The 60s and 70s was the Golden Age of the montage. I think it started with movie posters. Damn, I'm still kakking at the thought of that NDS poster. Wow, that is so bad.

    In order to recover from the sickening sight of the... hahaha... illustration above, let's have a look at one by the Master of the 60s and 70s Montage: Mr. Robert Peak ladies and gentlemen: http://bobpeak.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/OA_bobpeak_0247-581_Voyage_.jpg
