A fun idea, though if it gets popular, Hollywood might take offen$e. Nice to see pics from Saint Jack, one of my favorites. Thanks, Jeremy.

A lot of them look like publicity photos rather than stills from the actual movies. Publicity photos are interesting in that they're usually taken by some photographer who is paid to hang around on the set at snap pictures at good moments. They often take pictures during rehearsals or while they are setting up for a shot, which is why some of them look similar, but not quite exactly like, still frames from the movie.

You can usually pick these up at collectors' stores, which are almost always run by people just like the comic book guy from The Simpsons. One time I hunted around for ages so I could get my hands on a particular publicity shot of the cast from "Aliens" (I had seen it in the paper and though it would look cool on my wall), only to later find it included as a still image on the DVD. Oh well, the 8x10 glossy has more detail than the still image on the DVD anyway. (Apologies if this post is incoherent, I'm a little tired/punchy.)
