Poster of the Day: What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)

(Above) A French release poster for Robert Aldrich’s What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962)? The movie seems to have developed a bit of a reputation as a camp piece, but for me it still works as an expertly crafted thriller. I saw a screening of the film a few weeks ago alongside An American in Paris as part of a classic movie weekend at the historic Canton Palace Theatre in Canton, Ohio. The theatre has a few more events in the next few months worth checking out, including a Twilight Zone Fest featuring episodes of the anthology series, a Strangers on a Train and Psycho double feature, and a weekend of Universal monster movies from the 1930s and 1940s.

Poster comes from the Heritage Auction website, which has an amazing collection of movie art for sale.

Pic of the Day: Italian poster for Jacques Tati’s Trafic (1971)

Averardo cireiello italian poster Traffic jacques tati

The Averardo Ciriello-painted Italian advert for 1971’s Trafic, which marked the cinematic adieu of writer/director/star Jacques Tati’s Monsieur Hulot character. Though his career spanned four decades, Tati directed only six feature films – all of which you can find in a single Criterion Collection box set.
