Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
Movie posters don't have the marketing cache they once did. In fact, you rarely give them a second look when you walk through the multiplex to the shoebox that acts as a theater.
When's the last time a movie poster caught your eye? When's the last time you saw a movie poster and thought, "I gotta see that!"
What I love about this poster is it tells it like it is yet, at the same time, you can't help but wonder what you're in for. This film came out in 1965 and is decidedly non-conformist and anti-Hollywood. Its a big "F-You" to the movie studio system and a double dare to the movie going public. This poster is action packed and proto-feminist despite accentuating the Russ Meyer obvious.
Action, speed, thrills, kicks...its all here on this fantastic one-sheet.
