All of these designs for 1960s film posters from Poland have a couple of things in common, they’re all illustrated and none of them feature any of the movie’s stars. Polish film poster artists are sometimes known as the most creative, the reason for this is because the communist regime rejected the West’s glorification of movie stars, hence the two biggest stars of the era Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s non-appearance on the 1968 poster for the film Boom

This meant that the majority of films shown in Poland in the sixties often had colourful and psychedelic posters. Instead of featuring the stars, the illustrators used subliminal themed designs to portray what the film was about.

This selection of posters come from the Danish Film Institute, they’re a mix of Polish and Western made films. You may be able to work out some of them from the cast names, however, you may just want to guess and give it a “Shot in the dark”.
