Movie Poster of the Day: Somebody Up There Likes Me (1956)

The Italian poster for the Paul Newman boxing biopic Somebody Up There Likes Me.

Director Robert Wise’s 1956 boxing biopic Somebody Up There Likes Me traces the life of former middleweight champion Rocky Graziano. Paul Newman – in just his second big screen role – portrays the titular pugilist with manic method gusto.

Poster courtesy of the Twitter feed of Cineblog, which recently featured a retrospective of adverts from Wise’s diverse career (The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Sound of Music, The Haunting).
