Back when movie posters were important as advertisements, and many theaters were independently run, some printing companies offered posters that functioned as alternatives to the studio-approved designs. Theaters looking to promote a film in a unique or high-impact way could order these alternative posters and display them in their lobbies. I believe this large, silk-screened take on Ophuls’ “The Reckless Moment” is one of these “alternative” posters. The tone of the image totally misrepresents the picture, but I like its bright, comic-book flair.
