Show synopsis Following the acclaimed Film Posters of the '60s, internationally renowned poster archivists Tony Nourmand and Graham Marsh of the Reel Poster Gallery now present the best of the '70s film posters from their coveted collection of rare and graphically exciting originals. Reflecting the anxieties and escapism of this angst-ridden decade was the bleak realism of Taxi Driver and the political paranoia of All the President's Men. In the '70s, blaxploitation films made their first appearance, while Last Tango in Paris and Emmanuelle edged porno-chic into the mainstream and Apocalypse Now and Dirty Harry defined a new kind of anti-hero. American directors arriving on the scene in the '70s include Scorsese, Coppola, Spielberg, Lucas, Bogdanovich, and Woody Allen; internationally, directors like Bertolucci, Fassbinder, Wenders, and Ken Russell made their marks. With over 250 full-color posters from around the world, Film Posters of the '70s is a knock-out showcase for film fans, and anyone interested in graphic design and advertising.
