We thought an apt way to mark the end of the retrospective would be to link to Mubi.com‘s tribute to Lang in movie posters.
As Adrian Curry writes in his introduction to the collection of posters, “To search through Lang’s American posters (and the foreign posters for his American films) is to skulk through a world of fisted revolvers, prison cell bars, street corner shadows, knives, nooses, and dames in various stages of manhandled distress; a world of heightened emotions and febrile desperation with barely a smile to be seen.”
We’ve included three of the posters below, just to whet your appetite. But be sure you make your way over to see the full collection. It includes some beauts.
