Man in the Shadow (Jack Arnold, 1957) 🇺🇸

A year before Touch of Evil, Orson Welles was already being haunted by a devil, the one who gives this modern western a distinct feeling of film noir.

Boy on a Dolphin (Jean Negulesco, 1957) 🇺🇸

“I was nearly nine when I fell in love for the first time. I was swept away by a violent, all-consuming passion which totally poisoned my existence and almost cost me my life,” Romain Gary confessed to us in his childhood memoir. This is exactly what could have happened to you if your father had let you watch Boy on a Dolphin.

Ferry to Hong Kong (Lewis Gilbert, 1959) 🇺🇸

In Macao, we saw Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell landing in the port city from the Hong Kong ferry. Here we climb aboard the good old steam ferry, Fa Tsan, with the promise of plenty of romance and adventure ahead – although we’ll be needing our sea legs.

Macao (Josef von Sternberg and Nicholas Ray, 1952) 🇺🇸

Welcome to Macao, the fascinating “Monte Carlo of the East”, whose infernal gambling dens are a perfect playground for bad boys. Crooks, fugitives and smugglers hit the jackpot or are left high and dry depending on a throw of the dice. Still waters run deep and you have to be careful: this “calm and open” haven with its gently bobbing sampans has another, hidden side, “secret and veiled”, tucked away inside the casinos, as the opening credits warn us. Macao, in red letters with yellow shadowing on the poster, is all decked out in its finery, every bit as glamorous and elegant as the music-hall vamp who has emerged from its choppy waters.

Underwater! (John Sturges, 1955) 🇺🇸

Underwater! (John Sturges, 1955) 🇺🇸

This is not an advertisement for a one-piece swimming costume, but a poster for John Sturges' film Underwater! featuring the voluptuous actress Jane Russell in her finest attire. In 1955, the bikini (named after the Pacific atoll) had not yet invaded beaches. Since an American law (the Hays Code) forbade the showing of bellybuttons on screen, few actresses, apart from Rita Hayworth or Ava Gardner, dared show themselves in this minimalist outfit.

Beneath the 12-Mile Reef (Robert D. Webb, 1953) 🇺🇸

Today I'm going to talk to you about sponges. Not the sort that frenziedly scratch and scrub away at the dark corners of your bathrooms, but the inoffensive animal species that softly cover the world's ocean beds. Although they do, alas, end up marooned on the edge of an ordinary washbasin, left to their sad, utilitarian fate.

    Spot the poster! La Strada, An Affair to Remember, Creature from the Black Lagoon, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Roman Holiday in the film Luca 🇺🇸

    Although Pixar’s twenty-fourth feature film, Luca, is much too young to feature on our vintage cinema website, classic movie fans will be able to have fun finding their favourite posters camouflaged in the film’s settings. I found five, who can beat that?

    Under the Red Sea (Hans Hass, 1951) 🇺🇸

    The Red Sea is a favourite destination for divers, captivated by its translucent waters brimming with a variety of lush flora. However, it does not always live up to its image as an aquatic paradise. The depths of the Red Sea are also home to terrifying underwater monsters...

    The Silent World (Jacques-Yves Cousteau and Louis Malle, 1956) 🇺🇸

    Who hasn’t dreamed of moving freely, unshackled from the laws of gravity, among silent creatures, as fascinating as they are disturbing? 

    Simply by looking at the poster, I can already feel my pulse slow, my body and mind soothed by the deep blue which banishes the noise and fury of the outside world.
