The scarlet letter was her passport into regions where other women dared not tread. Shame, Despair, Solitude! These had been her teachers, stern and wild ones, and they had made her strong, but taught her much amiss.

Ooof, loving those 70s sci-fi illustrator planet environments we see in the background. I'd love to see comebacks of things like crystal spires rainbow city in the first one or the sunset-tree-bubble world in the last. Much cooler.

Is Lando going to fire those blasters with his middle finger or does he just have really over developed trigger discipline?

It's something that's not exclusive to female characters when it comes to Toriyama, to be fair.

To be fair it makes sense since at that point everyone knew how dangerous a Saiyan could be if they still had their tails.

There's morre colours and lines on the toriyama side, the only difference in terms of design is they put a contrasting colour in the background of goku and made sure the feminine design would blend in with the background colour.

I saw Parasite last night and really enjoyed it, so of course today I went looking for bad minimalist fan posters.




I don't know if this one is supposed to be a parody or not it's just so...






This one is literally just an existing poster put through one of those neural network filter apps.

I've been watching old Spanish movies and I found this poster from 1938 to be so weirdly evocative:



Don't know if I could ever track down a good print short of going to Madrid, but maybe one day.

MASSIVE longshot but do any of you suspect what movie this poster might be for

A bunch of people rougly arranged in a triangle and there appears to be a woman on the right of the poster gasping or screaming.

Below is something black and white that might be something similar to the cast photos form this poster from the same era

or something else entirely or another ad below that just blends in with the poster because of the distance and low resolution.

blown up into a complete blur:

The photo is from 1975 but since it's from Iceland the movie might be a few years older. Though this is from the town by the US army base where things arrived a bit earlier in those days.

Probably not very helpful, but here's half of it at a bit better resolution.


As you can already see the texture of the photo paper here, there's probably not a much better scan out there - probably wouldn't be enough for a reverse image search even if it would be fully visible.

Also, while there certainly were posters in that elongated format, the lower part might not actually be part of the poster itself.

The bottom part of it looks like b&w production photos/lobby cards, which were commonly integrated into posters in the 60s. I'm also getting a late 60s-70s Disney vibe from it for some reason, like The Apple Dumpling Gang or Escape from Witch Mountain.

The film is Wicked Wicked from 1973, notable for being the first and last film presented in MGM's wondrous new "Duo-Vision".
Meaning the entire film is viewed in split screen with the action alternating between sides.

Woman screaming suggested horror film, and while Iceland wasn't exactly known for its volume of domestic films in this era, FreudianSlippers mentioned that the photo was taken in a town near a US army base - which adds to that "horror film" hunch. Working backwards from 1975, I just checked all horror film entries on imdb looking for the woman in westborn's clearer photo. Didn't have far to go.

Hold up there cowboy, now you gotta spill why you needed this poster on a grainy old Icelandic photograph identified. That sounds like a story.

Not really.

Someone on Icelandic twitter posted the photo and asked movie buffs to help him identify the poster, purely out of curiosity. A bunch of people, me included spent hours trying to find it through various means but to no avail. Then I decided to try the power of the internet. However someone beat me to posting it on Twitter using the same method but on Facebook instead of SA.

Basically just a case of the mundanity of social distancing being broken by pointless curiosity.




And now I have to watch the film for the April horror challenge, though I suspect tracking down a copy might be a hassle since it isn't on streaming and probably isn't known enough to be easily available through other means.
