1951 Film Noir Poster Gallery

For #Noirvember I return to images and a gallery to pay homage to film noir releases of 1951.  I don’t think many of us would argue that they don’t make movies like they used to, I say they also don’t make posters like they used to either.  I adore these images – the cynical players and dark and dreary streets given proper due in art and the catchy tag lines – all true to the murderous genre.  Here’s to film noir!

  1. What I love about these old posters is the artistry involved! Usually very accurate renderings of the stars faces. And the techniques the studio or advertising artists obviously had with dramatic lighting effects!

  2. Wonderful posters! And thank you for including one of my favorites, “Appointment With Danger”. (It features Jack Webb and Harry Morgan as two of the criminals!)
