Next to American film stars (Steve McQueen, Raquel Welch) there were also
Italian and French actors extremely popular in the Czechoslovakia (Brigitte
Bardot, Jean Paul Belmondo, Louis de Funés) and others. Seek for posters for
films in which another film stars act directly in our database. Enter a name of
an actor into the „searching“.
„What’s on?“„Oh, a Belmondo as always…“one could hear in front of Czech
cinemas once. Vaca’s typical style can be spotted on his poster design for film
Up To His Ears. Fremund’s La
Viaccia starring C. Cardinale is also brilliant.
French films were very popular in the Czechoslovakia. Josef
Vyleťal definitely did not spare any of his imagination when creating his
surrealist poster for The Black Tulip. Flic Story belongs to criminal genre.
Jaroš’s design for a film Once
Upon a Time starring Catherine Deneuve and Jean Marais is pretty wild. Karel
Machálek‘s poster for Belladonna is mesmerizing.
Zdeněk Ziegler created a beautiful typographical poster for film Pale
Rider. Also a poster for a film Joe
Kidd is characteristic in its genre.
Milan Grygar created a unique series of 12 posters for
Chaplin’s films. There is nothing like that to be found in the history of the
Czech film poster.
„The Divine Marcello“ is depicted on Hrdina’s poster for The
Stranger. Fellini’s opus Ginger and Fred was accompanied with a poster by Milan
Vyleťal’s poster for Easy Rider is very unique because the censors made the
graphic artist cover the American flag on the back of the main character’s
jacket with a smokescreen.
This charismatic American actor obviously could not escape the attention of
Czech graphic artists. Sládek’s Bullitt only proves it. Ziegler’s Papillon is also a great piece.
A fenomenal performer of Zorba
the Greek had heaps of fans in the Czechoslovakia. Among very succesful
posters belong Kadrnožka’s The
Passage and Bidlo’s expressive Flap.
Zdeněk Ziegler was summoned to the police station because of his poster for
Rifles. He had to explain the police where he got the 100 dollar note
which is depicted on the poster design…
