Come and Get It

1936 poster.  I’ve never seen AFB, seen twice in the bottom right corner, on a movie poster.  American Film Bureau?  Something contemporary?

Come and Get It

I don’t know what country produced this poster for Come and Get It (1936).  It doesn’t look like any other American posters.

The Big Sleep

Leigh Brackett and Howard Hawks get away with some outrageous sexual innuendo in this scene from The Big Sleep (1946).  Leigh would collaborate with Hawks on most everything else in Hawks’ career, through El Dorado (1967).   Hawks was unaware Leigh was a woman, until their first meeting.

The Big Sleep

Bogart and Bacall in a publicity still for The Big Sleep (1946).  It was re-cut with 15 minutes more of the just married couple.  It made the plot incomprehensible, but if anybody notices, it’s of no concern, since all the scenes are in the best Hawks style.
