Picnic (1955) - Polish
My favorite polish poster of all time! A beautiful silhouette of presumably Kim Novak… I’ve never found a good side picture to match it up, but Susan Strasberg was too young, so logic leads you to Kim… Art by Polish artist Swierzy.

Grace Kelly and William Holden, The Country Girl
32 years ago today William Holden passed away. Not only do we remember this remarkable man as one of the best actors of all time who starred in some of the most well known and historic movies ever made. But as a man who contributed so much to the preservation of wildlife. I remember the first movie i saw him in was Sabrina and i wondered who that man was? There was something about his voice that made him so different from other actors. And you could tell too, if you ever watch a movie with Bill in it and you don’t watch the screen but just hear his voice you can defiantly assume, “Hey isn’t that Bill Holden?” I feel like he was always a man who just kind of stood out from others. He had sparked my interest in classic films at a very young age and i thank him for that. Knowing that having a chance of sitting down and having a conversation with this man is impossible. Yet with his films and his conservation of wildlife, and just being the way he was as a man can answer most of our questions.
so Bill, thank you for being the man you were. To this day the fans you have will never forget you and make sure you are still recognized in the future years to come. You are, and always will be, the golden boy.
(April 17, 1918 - November 12, 1981)
