Thursday chuckle

by chuckofish

Here are a few examples I found recently of movie posters that bear no relation whatsoever to the film they are allegedly marketing.

I mean seriously. Fort Apache (1948) takes place in the desert and was filmed in Monument Valley, Arizona. There are no Indians in canoes. And if there were canoes, John Wayne would know better than to stand up in one.

Are you kidding me? Words fail. “Men and women on the last frontier of wickedness”–if that’s what you were expecting, you were in for a big disappointment!

I wonder if this marketing method–i.e. blatantly wrong illustrations–ever worked.

Weird.

Have a good Thursday, or Friday eve, as we say in flyover land.
