Old Mexican movie posters

Thursday, September 22, 2011

From the post El Tren Expreso at 50 Watts, these are posters advertising Mexican movies from the middle of the 20th Century. It is interesting to see the Latin twist on the familiar graphic style of the era.

There are more below the fold, and of course even more at the 50 Watts site. I wonder if the movies were any good?

Well, it's really good to see the extreme collection of vintage Mexican movie posters. The existing movie posters of this post really drives me on the most craziest way about it. Thanks for sharing.

I’ve seen several posters from countries like Japan, South Korea and Singapore and I could say that posters from your country are exceptional!

I love the choice of colors and shading for those posters. Old movies really have a unique take in creating their posters. The sad thing is, posters of these materials actually deteriorate over time. This is the reason why these should also be included in film archiving projects. Don’t you agree?
