Check These Out: TCM's Summer Under the Stars Posters
The always wonderful Turner Classic Movies is launching their new summer movie series called Summer Under the Stars. This marathon will include 42 films that will be making their premiere on TCM. Each and every day, from August 1st to August 31st, they will run a daily marathon of films featuring one classic actor, including Henry Fonda, James Coburn, Harold Lloyd, Judy Garland, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, and Clark Gable (you can download the full schedule from here). In honor of their upcoming series, TCM has debuted a few special posters created for some of the classics that will be making their premiere on TCM.
The Magnificent Seven
To Catch a Thief
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Thanks to Rope of Silicon for first featuring these beautiful posters. Click that link to see a lot more of these, including great contemporary posters for Grapes of Wrath, The Big Heat, High Society, Jailhouse Rock, Safety Last, and Gilda. I have a feeling these posters could become as iconic as the original films themselves - as they're so perfectly representative of contemporary design today. And best of all, they really make me want to check out almost all of these classics films, as I personally haven't seen most of them (I admit).
