I'm Skipping the Oscar Broadcast tomorrow but. . .

. . . here’s something cool.


The “Movie Poster Addict” website has a display of the the promotional posters for each of the last 79 “Best Picture” winners. What a contrast to today’s marketing. I love the slogan for the Frank Capra film above: “You’ll love them all for giving you the swellest time you’ve ever had!”

I was curious as to how many of the previous 79 winners I’ve actually seen. I counted 65. I was much less likely to have seen the very recent ones than the very old ones.

How about you?
