As CLINT EASTWOOD
is about to release his 39th movie as Director, The 15:17 To Paris, I wanted to highlight some of his movies, both as Director and Actor, thru the angle of one of my favorite movie poster format, i.e. the italian FOTOBUSTA in this 10 part Blog.
Wrongly translated as the Italian lobby card, the fotobusta is a colorful movie poster printed on glossy paper and part of a larger set comprising of between 4 to 16 posters, each with unique images and vivid colors, sometimes augmented by a double fotobusta called soggettone (or 1 Foglio/1F). The complete sets are now extremely hard to find and make it a joy when doing when finding them.
We start with the last two movies of The Man With No Name trilogy directed by Sergio Leone
Director: Sergio Leone
Above are two complete fotobusta movie posters set of 4 posters each printed for the 1969 rerelease of the 2 movies. They are augmented by the two soggettone (1F) posters. Click on each poster image for details
