In Memory Of Bill Gold

Yesterday, the prolific artist Bill Gold passed away.

Over the course of a 70 yeas career, Bill Gold was responsible for some of the most best known movie posters of all time.  He was a favorite of everyone from Alfred Hitchcock to Stanley Kubrick to Clint Eastwood.  His designed his first film poster, for Yankee Doodle Dandy, in 1942 and came out of retirement to do his final poster, for J. Edgar, in 2011.  He is also well-remembered for the famous poster for Casablanca.

I first profiled Bill Gold for this site in 2012.  In honor of his career and his memory, here are even more film posters from Bill Gold:


Music Video of the Day: I Always Liked Men With Good Hands by Adi Ulmansky (2012, dir by Ori Sinai)

Ever since Evelyn (a.k.a. my best friend in the entire world) first introduced me to her music, I’ve always enjoy the reliably strange videos of Adi Ulmansky and this one features a black cat!
