It's only appropriate that the most epic romance of all time should have a poster that is, itself, pretty epic. I think the poster captures the large scale scope of the narrative, foregrounding the romantic plot against the film's biggest set piece, the burning of Atlanta.
A jaunty, fun poster. It's kind of an obvious interpretation - Fred and Ginger dancing on a top hat to advertise a movie called Top Hat - but I think that's part of its charm.
The movie is creepy, the poster art is creepy. The poster makes for an interesting contrast with the film, though, in that it kind of makes Peter Lorre look like the story's victim, rather than the perpetrator. The giant hand that looks like it's about to close over him is particularly unsettling.
A simple, minimalist poster but very evocative. I haven't been fortunate enough to see Modern Times yet, but every time I see this poster it makes me want to. It's a beautifully rendered piece of work.
Love this poster, even though I also find it kind of disquieting. There's not much to it, but the mood it creates makes it one of the most startling and unforgettable posters I've ever seen.
