Film Posters of the 70s
The Essential Movies of the Decade : From the Reel Poster Gallery CollectionBook - 1998
Reflecting the political and cultural climate of this angst-ridden decade was the bleak realism of Taxi Driver and the sinister paranoia of All the President's Men. In the 70s, blaxploitation films made their first appearance while Last Tango in Paris and Emmanuelle edged porno-chic into the mainstream and Apocalypse Now and Dirty Harry defined a new kind of anti-hero. American directors arriving on the scene in the 70s included Scorsese, Coppola, Spielberg, Lucas, Bogdanovich and Woody Allen; internationally, directors like Bertolucci, Fassbinder, Wenders, and Ken Russell made their marks. With over 250 full-color posters from around the world, Film Posters of the 70s is a knock-out showcase for film fans, and anyone interested in graphic design and advertising.
