La SIRENE DU MISSISSIPI (The Mississippi Mermaid) (1969) - FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT Movie posters (Part 2/10)

FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT's first movie with both Catherine Deneuve (see Part 8) and Jean-Paul Belmondo is a dramedy shot mainly on the Reunion island (and not in the South of the US as the title may lead us to believe) where two estranged lovers get married after only having a mail correspondence with Belmondo chasing Deneuve back to France faster she stole his money!  

If the movie hasn’t been a success, it still is a visual feat as both actors shine against the lush backdrop of La Reunion island’s scenery and Deneuve is simply luminous as shown in the many posters above

Starting with the Japanese movie poster then 4 Italian fotobusta then the Yugoslavian and US posters, concluding with both the cover and the inside of the Japanese movie program.

CASANOVA 70 (1965) - MARCELLO MASTROIANNI’s MOVIE POSTERS (Part 1)

We clearly anticipate trends as we said last week we would be focusing on MARCELLO MASTROIANNI movies this week. The Cannes Film Festival just published the poster for its 67th edition featuring our beloved icon!!!

This 10 part blog will focus on on his solo movies (excluding the ones he shot with Sophia Loren and/or Vittorio de Sica - which will be treated next week - as well as 8 &1/2 and La Notte treated previously - see our blog archives)

MM is a modern time Casanova, having conquered the hearts of the most beautiful women in the world so it seems natural to start with the movie where he plays the ultimate seducer.

Directed by Mario Monicelli, the movie sees MM playing a UN soldier traveling the world and seducing as many women as he can in dangerous places (watch trailer here).

The list of his conquests is enough to make any man jealous:  Virna Lisi (see Part 6), Marisa Mell and last but not least Michele Mercier whose flawless backside is featured in the Italian fotobusta below

Along that image you can find probably the coolest MM poster ever made for the Japanese release of the movie as well as the US half sheet and the colorful Danish poster.

ZABRISKIE POINT - ITALIAN FOTOBUSTA POSTER SETS (PART 2)

Further to Blow-Up (see Part 1), ZABRISKIE POINT is another movie from Michelangelo Antonioni mixing dazzling images and music. This time the soundtrack was composed by none other than Pink Floyd whose mood music perfectly matched the desert setting particularly in the love scene here

An out there movie which has gained cult status over the years summing up the Free Love culture of the late 60’s early 70s. The message may have faded but not the amazing cinematography not the vibrant colors found on the very rare fotobusta posters above
