Harry Ransom Center: Movie Poster Collection

The University of Texas at Austin's Harry Ransom Center recently released this impressive digitized collection of movie posters released between 1950 and 1974, along with a few un-dated posters. The collection includes posters for 1957's Lady Chatterley's Lover (celebrated as "The Film Without False Modesty!"); 1961's The Parent Trap; a 1966 poster for an Elizabeth Taylor double feature (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Butterfield 8); and a 1972 poster for The Heartbreak Kid. This collection features both classic movies as well as cult titles (such as Five Branded Women). The digital collection currently features hundreds of posters. The entire movie poster collection at the Harry Ransom Centers numbers well over 10,000 - movie fans can expect the digital collection to grow in years to come.
