Overview

Historic films cover places and people and events. Invariably with a romantic interest thrown in. This collection concentrates on films using events that happened before the 20th Century which are covered separately. Again fact and fiction were mixed, and few stood up to real examination historically. This was not important as above all the films were for entertainment more than education as general rule. History based films offered great opportunities for the filmmakers, and also for the designers of Posters enticing the paying public into the cinemas. This collection also shows how several films were presented in different countries, and the superb artwork that was invariaby used.

About the Author

In this Vol.9 of the 50 Great Film Poster series, Norm Clark ('The Accidental Ad-man'*) adds to his ever-expanding book series on his Passion for Posters. What was an interest and even part of his working life of 50 years in Advertising & Marketing, is now a consuming and absorbing hobby as he endeavours to show how well so-called Commercial Art stands up against Fine Art.
*His Memoirs under this title are also available on amazon and kindle.
