Saturday Night Fever - 1977


Badham's melodramatic, out-dated film was the biggest musical sensation and blockbuster of the late 1970's (from co-producer Robert Stigwood) - adapted by screenwriter Norman Wexler from Nik Cohn's New York Magazine story "Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night." It features one of the most famous song soundtracks in film history, and was responsible for the Disco Craze phenomenon, launching hot

Rocky - 1976


Rocky Framed Poster 24.9374 in. x 36.9374 in. Buy This The phenomenally successful, uplifting, "sleeper" film that was filmed in a record twenty-eight days with a paltry budget of about $1 million, and ultimately grossed well over $100 million. (This low-budget film was positioned between two early "blockbusters" - Spielberg's Jaws (1975) and Lucas' Star Wars (1977).) Its

Patton - 1970


Patton, 1970 Giclee Print 12 in. x 9 in. Buy This The epic film biography, shot in 70 mm. widescreen color, of the controversial, bombastic, multi-dimensional World War II general and hero George S.

The Palm Beach Story - 1942


The Palm Beach Story (1942) is a hilarious, zany, marital screwball comedy by writer/director Preston Sturges - it was his last romantic comedy and one of the last, classic screwball comedies. The witty, nonsensical film of mistaken identities and deception is a satire on sex as an asset. The farcical plot with cynical satire effectively skewers the idle rich (millionaires) and the pursuit of

The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993

Night of the Living Dead - 1968


Night Of The Living Dead 3D 27 in. x 41 in. Buy This One of the most important and influential horror films of all time - George Romero's ultra-low budget debut film shot in grainy black-and-white with an unknown cast reinvented the genre. The film was actually improved by its crude "drawbacks," since they lent a documentary feel and reality that made the film all the more

The Matrix - 1999


The Matrix Art Print 40 in. x 30 in. Buy This The Wachowski Brothers' popular, imaginative, visually-stunning science-fiction action film - the first in a trilogy with inferior sequels: the somewhat successful but critically derided The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and the artificially-expanded The Matrix Revolutions (2003).

Flashdance - 1983


Flashdance Poster 24 in. x 36 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted That Oscar-winning title song buzzes in your ears long after the movie has stopped. The attraction here is youthful spirit and a pulsating score, because the weak story is merely a conduit for the song-and-dance numbers. The plot is every young woman's daydream come true. Jennifer Beals holds down a macho job as a

The Evil Dead - 1983


The Evil Dead Giclee Print 12 in. x 9 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted In the fall of 1979, Sam Raimi and his merry band headed into the woods of rural Tennessee to make a movie.

Valley of the Dolls - 1967


Valley of the Dolls, 1967 Giclee Print 9 in. x 12 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted They don't make 'em like this anymore. Well, John Waters might, if he ever had a big enough budget. A steamy "inside look" at the alternately sleazy and glamorous world of catfighting, backbiting show-biz starlets, this Hollywood hit from the bestselling novel by Jacqueline Susann is a high-gloss camp

The Outsiders - 1982


The Outsiders, 1982 Giclee Print 9 in. x 12 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted Director Francis Coppola's adaptation of the popular S.E. Hinton novel about the price of rebellious youth is notable chiefly for the stunning cast of young actors who went on to rich and varied careers.

The Switchblade Sisters - 1975


The Switchblade Sisters Masterprint 12 in. x 16 in. Buy at Mounted Jack Hill's 1975 drive-in opus, Switchblade Sisters, has all the requisite cheese and then some: girl fights, gun duels, sex-starved reform school guards, flashes of nudity, and even African-American-Maoist-revolutionary-butt-kicking chicks who don't take nonsense from anyone. The story is a prime example of

Beat Girl - 1961


Beat Girl Masterprint 12 in. x 16 in. Buy at Mounted Before swinging London and the rock & roll explosion took over English youths, Britain's first teen rebel didn't have much of a cause but plenty of attitude. Pouty art-school student Jennifer (teen sex kitten Gillian Hills, looking very much a British Bardot) is the Beat Girl of the title, an alienated teenager who hangs out

Reservoir Dogs - 1992


Reservoir Dogs Poster 22.5 in. x 34 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted Most of the action in Quentin Tarantino's pulp crime movie takes place in a cavernous warehouse, to which the surviving participants of a botched jewelry heist have repaired to lick their wounds.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show - 1975


Rocky Horror Picture Show Poster 24 in. x 36 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted If a musical sci-fi satire about an alien transvestite named Frank-n-Furter, who is building the perfect man while playing sexual games with his virginal visitors, sounds like an intriguing premise for a movie, then you're in for a treat. Not only is The Rocky Horror Picture all this and more, but it stars

Trainspotting - 1996


Trainspotting Poster 24 in. x 36 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted Is the rhetorical question asked by Renton (Ewan McGregor) early on in the movie. That sums up the complete hold that heroin exerts on the lives of main characters of the movie and the horrendous consequences of this addiction. I have heard that Trainspotting has been criticized as glorifing drugs. People making this

Attack of the 50 Foot Woman Art Print 23.625 in. x 31.5 in. Buy at Framed   Mounted "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman," the 1958 cult classic, is everything that the 1957 science fiction film "The Incredible Shrinking Man" is not.
