It’s an interesting collection. Some great movies with forgettable posters. Some great posters with forgettable movies. And even some great movies with great posters. Poster-wise, my favorites are probably the ones for All Quiet on the Western Front, Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Gigi, The Godfather, Amadeus, Silence of the Lambs and Schindler’s List. But there are others that I really like and my list would probably differ from day to day. But what are your favorites?
