The Giant of Metropolis (1961) - (Gordon Mitchell) Argentine one-sheet

This is a 29" x 43" Argentine poster for the 1961 Umberto Scarpelli film The Giant of Metropolis [Il gigante di Metropolis] based on a story by Gino Stafford, screenplay by Sabatino Ciuffini, Ambrogio Molteni, Oreste Palella, Emimmo Salvi and Umberto Scarpelli and starring Gordon Mitchell as Obro. Plot summary: In 20000 BC the people on the lost continent of Atlantis have developed an advanced civilization and are ruling the earth. A powerful man named Obro is sent by his father [Mani Meniconi] to the capital city Metropolis to oppose its godlessness and hubris; the scientists in Metropolis are trying to subvert the process of death but their evil efforts are only causing destruction. They do not see that only love will be able to prevail as the source of life, and so they use their scientific powers to deprive all the people of Metropolis of their free will. When Obro and his group enter the Valley of Metropolis King Yoh-tar [Rolando Lupi] orders his henchmen to unleash the magnetic whirlwinds of death against them. Only Obro survives the attack to be brought before King Yoh-tar; the two immediately get into a hot verbal confrontation vowing to destroy each other. Thus begins an epic tale about a life-and-death struggle between the forces of good and evil portrayed on a huge futuristic set that looks as if it was built for a Buck Rogers film.

Nichols, Sebatino Ciuffini, Ambrogio Molteni, Emimmo Salvi, Oreste Palella, Gino Stafford, Gordon Mitchell, Furio Meniconi, Liana Orfei, Bella Cortez, Rolando Lupi, Roldano Lupi, Marietto, Omero Gargano, Mario Meniconi, Carlo Tamberlani, Luigi Moneta, Ugo Sasso, Renato Terra, CArlo Enrici, Leopoldo Savona, Liana Orfei

Harry in Your Pocket (1973) - (James Coburn) US one-sheet

Harry in Your Pocket (1973) - (James Coburn) US one-sheet

This is a US 27" x 41" one-sheet poster for the 1973 Bruce Geller film Harry in Your Pocket based on a story by James Buchanan and Ronald Austin and starring James Coburn as Harry. Plot summary: This is a film about professional pickpockets and their gangs, with technical jargon provided by film advisers who were themselves former pickpockets. Ray Houlihan [Michael Sarrazin] is an amateur thief who is taken in as a protege by a "wire mob"--a team of itinerant professional pickpockets--and tutored in tricks of the trade. Ray and his girlfriend Sandy Coletto [Trish Van Devere] meet Harry, a skilled professional pickpocket, who gives them money for better wardrobes and trains them to play parts as members of a coordinated team of pickpockets that specializes in preying on the upper classes. Tensions develop when Ray and Sandy begin training with Harry's senior partner Casey [Walter Pidgeon] and start developing superior skills that allow them to operate independently of the gang. The film contains the prophetic line from James Coburn's Harry: "If anything money'll disappear and we'll all be a number in a giant computer." In 1973 he was almost 45 years ahead of his time, but in 2015 what he predicted has already begun with the war on cash that is now being waged by a lot of banks.
