Most Iconic Movie Posters

What do you consider the most iconic and instantly recognizable movie posters?

I need to do a campaign and am trying to be creative. Please help me, it’s been a long few weeks :slight_smile:

Star Wars

MAS*H

Yep, *Star Wars *was my first thought. My second was Gone With the Wind. Jaws and A Clockwork Orange are early ideas, too.

“Jaws.”

Heck, it was on Gord Downie’s t-shirt!

Here is the MASH poster

Star Wars, for certain, though there are several different versions, including:
The original Brothers Hildebrandt art
A revised version, in which Luke and Leia look more like Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher
Another well-known version
A few more suggestions:

The Silence of the Lambs
The Terminator
E.T.

Star Wars and E.T. were the first to come to mind.

Going back a bit, the King Kong (1933) poster is pretty well known:

A few more:

Alien
The Usual Suspects
Pulp Fiction

I think the “Rocky” poster was quite recognizable back in the day.

Hamill really hit the gym, didn’t he?
:smiley:

Raiders of the Lost Ark

the Shining

Rosemary’s Baby

Gone with the Wind

Thinking about what I consider iconic movie posters, I realized that a couple of them were by the same artist, Saul Bass:

In addition to The Man with the Golden Arm and Anatomy of a Murder, he did the Shining and Vertigo as well.

Vertigo
Anatomy of a Murder

This one from Le Mans

Lots of working out on the Soloflex. :wink:

Young Frankenstein

Great minds think alike! :smiley:

For E.T., I was thinking more of this one, the “ouch” one. That was certainly the first one I saw, back when the movie was new.

A couple I bet you can picture before you even click:
Scarface
The Exorcist

And, of course, since this is the SDMB: Airplane!
