Excuse the lack of posts lately. It’s been a week, I’ll tell you that.
Last week when I posted the “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” 1970s-style poster here, I noted that it was a throwback to an entire era of cool movie posters.
Here’s the “Winter Soldier” poster, of course.
Here (and above) is the poster for “Dillinger,” a 1973 classic.
“Dillinger” was directed by John Milius, writer of such classic screenplays as the original “Conan” and “Red Dawn.”
“Dillinger” starred Warren Oates, a great character actor, as John Dillinger, the Depression-era bank robber.
“Dillinger” is remembered as a classic of its kind. And what a supporting cast: Ben Johnson, Harry Dean Stanton, Richard Dreyfuss (as Baby Face Nelson!) Geoffrey Lewis, Steve Kanaly (of “Dallas”), Frank McRae and so many others.
And it’s got a cool poster too.
