Gallery – Poster tag lines

Sadly, we don't see too many great tag lines on movie posters nowadays – probably because we know so much more in advance from social media and the internet that the studios don't need to tell us about the film on the poster. But, before the world-wide-web, we looked to the posters to tell us more about the story lines and the tag lines were the starting point. Many of these poster tag lines are as famous as the films themselves - "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" for Star Wars or "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water" for the Jaws sequel, Jaws 2. They set the scene and made you think.

But some of the best tag lines are on lesser known movies, especially the low budget B movies and exploitation films of the 50's and 60's. These films were rarely reviewed in the papers and, with a typical run of just a week at the local cinema, it was the tag lines that were the key to selling tickets because word of mouth was just too slow. This was truly the sharp end of popular culture – every element of teenage angst was laid bare together with suggestions of orgies, drugs and wild women, exotic foreign lands and incredible space monsters. These claims were invariably wild exaggerations and we were gullible fools but the cinema had our ticket money by this point and they knew that we'd be back again the following week. So the game continued.

This month, I've put together 100 posters with some of my favourite lines. Some you will definitely recognise but many you won't and are included because they're clever, funny, a bit mad or because they give us more of an insight into social history and the cinema zeitgeist.

For what it's worth, my own personal favourite is the tag line for the 1953 film, Man Crazy. "A story scrawled across the conscience of a nation, written in the flaming lipsticks of youth". They don't write them like that anymore... Flaming lipsticks of youth... Pure genius.

Now go and find your own favourite.

Assassin of Youth Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Assassin of Youth 1937 US 1 sht 27"x41" Fine/Near Mint £4,995
Notes: This 1937 exploitation film from director Elmer Clifton details the alleged ill effects of cannabis or "marihuana" on America's youth. Similar to the better known Reefer Madness, the picture represents the exaggerated anti-drug propaganda of the time.  This is a rare one sheet poster from the first release. Like many low budget, low circulation exploitation films, the poster was a hand drawn screen print produced in small numbers rather than printed on a regular machine press. This not only makes it much rarer than other movie posters, the process also gives the design stronger bolder colours. This example is in excellent original condition with no fading and minimal yellowing of the paper. There is a little edge wear at the corners and archival tape repairs to fold separations but these do not detract from the overall presentation and it looks stunning.

Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Bayou (Poor White Trash teaser) 1957 US - 28"x42" Very Good/Fine £145
Notes: Exploitation movie posters don't come more direct than this. Decades before Jerry Springer and Jeremy Kyle made TV shows about social underclasses, the movie industry showed that it understood what audiences were really after. Originally released as Bayou in 1957, the film was retitled Poor White Trash for the re-release in 1966. This is the advance poster with inspired simplicity in approach. It has tape burns around the edges from use but is otherwise excellent.

Dark Knight (DS advance) Original Vintage Movie Poster  
Title Year Nominal size Condition Price
Dark Knight (DS advance) 2008 US 1 sht 27"x40" Near Mint £325
Notes: Why so serious? For many, The Dark Knight is the best of the Batman movies with some genuine darkness in the characterisation and storyline. Heath Ledger died shortly afterwards and won a posthumous Oscar for his role as the Joker. This fact, the stunning image and the fact that the 'why so serious?' poster was withdrawn shortly after the film was released (in favour of one featuring Batman), make this design particularly sought after. This rarity has created a market for bootleg versions, though, and there are far more fakes than genuine posters around. This item is guaranteed to be an original, studio issued, double-sided poster intended for cinema use, rolled as issued.

Dawn of the Dead Original Vintage Movie Poster

Dawn of the Dead 1978 Australian 1 sht 27"X40" Fine £165
Notes: When there's no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth. Following the unexpected success of Night of the Living Dead, George Romero belatedly found himself with a decent budget and the assistance of horror legend Dario Argento for the follow up. He didn't disappoint. Dawn of the Dead wasn't just the best zombie film ever made, it was also a scathing attack on the morality of modern America as the zombies take over the shopping mall. This is an Australian one sheet from the first release in 1978, folded as issued.

They make them lie on a board, drape cheap curtains over them, and pull them away for "electro-purification". Mull, a shaggy, snaggle-tooth monster, is also on hand, and is the titular space monster for "Frankenstein" to fight. Frank blows himself up along with the evil bald aliens, and Cape Kennedy, Puerto Rico and Korea are all saved. Hurrah!!!
