Polish movie posters. The Polish Poster Gallery has a fascinating collection of artist renditions of american movie posters. The collection compares favorably with the 50 Greatest Movie Posters, as listed by Premiere magazine.

Great link, patrickje. I love seeing the interpretations of the movies and how they look more like art than a flashy ad.

Also, check out: polishposter.com, which has a good selection of various movies, theatre, and opera posters from around the world.

I love those things, I've actually got one in my room. The one I've been dying for, however, is the one for down by law

Interesting link; do you suppose these artists ever actually Saw the films they were postering? 'Jewel of the Nile' via 'Dirty Harry'? Two old guys whispering representing the film 'Willow'? Odd.
