All this month Turner Classic Movies has been focusing on a single Hollywood star each day, running marathons of their respective movies for 24 hours at a time. What I didn’t realize was that the site also has accompanying posters for each of these 31 stars. If there’s anything I love more than movies, it’s movie art. And the ones at TCM are simply divine. These are my favorites, but you can see all 31 designs at the TCM’s Summer Under the Stars.
Olivia de Havilland
I admit I’m a bit disappointed in this one, as it’s not immediately recognizable as the Great Kate. But then I have to wonder: is there an iconic image that is unmistakably Kate Hepburn and also works in silhouette? Perhaps a full length image in wide-legged trousers? That’s something to ponder!
One of my top three favorites within the set (along with Newman and McQueen). Not only is it obvious and iconic, but it evokes the same emotion I feel each time I watch Lawrence of Arabia. Which is the mark of great art, after all!
