Vintage Movie Posters As Art

I'm working with a client who's considering an oversized vintage movie poster in her living room. It's easy to forget what beautiful works of art some of these old one sheets are. I searched out some of the chicest films I could think of, and their posters are equally gorgeous. Take a look (click captions for info):

A classic.

So lovely.
 As a general rule, I try to find the poster in a language other than the film's language, if that makes sense.

I bought the Italian version of this for C years ago. It used to hang in our apartment but now lives in his office. I still love it and kind of miss it.

One of my all time favorite films.

I've actually always wanted this one and can't believe  I found it.  Maybe it's a sign?

Anything with a huge photo of Marcello on it is soooo good.

Can't go wrong with Grant, Kelly and Hitch.

I actually have no idea what this film is but my client used to row in college and I think this is hilarious.

Would you hang movie art in your home? Or is it too cliche for you?

OMG! That collection is wonderful! There's something about vintage posters like those that give such a glamorous vibe. I gotta say, my favorite among the bunch would be the poster of Casablanca, probably because I love the film. Thank you for sharing that collection!
