In the movie, ‘Vanilla Sky’, David has a poster of a woman in a car looking out the window-what poster is it?
Anybody know who the photographer is or what this poster is called?
Actually, the poster is photography, not a painting. I believe it is black and white…
I do not recall the picture in the film exactly, but the only one I can think of is Tamara De Lempicka’s “Tamara in the Green Bugatti” (if you want to check, here is a link: http://www.maristellabono.it/ita/q26.htm )
It’s really nice, and I don’t want to ruin it. I have some poster that I put up with tape and thumbtacks but they suck. A lot.
So is there anyway I can put a poster on a wall without screwing it up?
Yes, frame it. Pick up a frame at Wal-Mart or K-Mart ( whichever you have in your area) that goes with the ” decor” of the room it’s going to hang in. The hanger is already attached to the frame. All you have to do is put it in the frame and put a nail/ screw in the wall to hang it from.

Art poster auctions are very popular. Owning great pieces of art has gotten easier. A properly framed art poster can be as nice as owning an original painting and it is far less expensive.
I have found many different art styles in art poster auctions. The most expensive art poster in the abstract style sold recently on eBay was a 1959 Picasso entitled Les Menines. The poster sold for $560.00.
There was an original and authentic art poster auction recently in the art deco style that caught my eye. The poster was from 1961 and was for Breakfast at Tiffany. The poster sold for over three thousand dollars.
World’s Fair art poster auctions seem to do very well. I saw an auction for the 1939 New York World’s Fair that sold for more than fifteen hundred dollars. There was another art poster auction for the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair that went for just under fifteen hundred dollars.
In the Asian art poster auction market, there seems to be some really odd things. I found a poster that depicted McDonald’s hamburgers invading Japan. The poster got fourteen bids from six different people and it closed at four hundred fifty five dollars.
In the category of Impressionist art poster auctions, I found one for the 2006 Jazz Festival in New Orleans that sold for over four hundred dollars. It was done by a Cajun artist named James Michalopulos and featured Fats Domino. The colors in the poster were brilliant.
I found that the category of Modern art posters seems to get the most auction listings. There is one art poster that keeps being re-listed because it just doesn’t sell. The poster is from the Elvis movie Love Me Tender. Apparently the owner of this poster has determined that it is worth one thousand dollars and will not take less than that. He hasn’t sold it yet, but I wish him luck.
There were another Modern art poster auctions that really did well as far as I could tell. They were Greyhound travel posters. There were a couple of art poster auctions that sold recently. They were both created in the 1950’s and both of the posters sold for around three hundred dollars each.
After researching so many art poster auctions, I have come to the conclusion that my parents and grandparents should have collected every piece of advertising they ever came across. They would be worth a small fortune by now!
The Sante Fe Railroad as a subject is prominently sold in art poster auctions. These must be highly collectable because they generate a lot of bids. If the art poster auction is for an old original poster of the Sante Fe Railroad, it will fetch upwards of four hundred dollars.
I found an art poster auction that was listed by the artist himself. He made a black ink drawing for the Pearl Jam concert in Rome in 1996. This original drawing was what the poster was made from.
Pop art poster auctions cover a lot of different topics. One of my favorites was a 7-up soda advertisement from 1970 that featured The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. The item did not sell, but it was fun to look at.
In the style of Realism, art poster auctions abound. I found one that was an advertisement for United Airlines and depicted the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. This poster sold for over one hundred fifty dollars.
The most interesting art poster auctions I found were for rock concerts. I liked the one listed for at 1956 Rolling Stones concert and there was another one for a Grateful Dead concert in Hawaii. They sold for a combined total of over seven thousand dollars. The interest in these art poster auctions was overwhelming.
Advertising seems to be a big theme in the art poster auctions that I looked at. I found advertisements for just about everything. I liked the poster for Russian beer that was created in the late 1920’s. It would look fantastic framed in my neighborhood bar. The buyer of this particular poster bought it for $475.00.
Concert posters are fun to look through. Art poster auctions feature a lot of posters for concerts. I found one that was made by Jim Pollock for a Phish concert in 2000 in Hartford. I liked it, but I am not a fan of Phish and the three hundred dollars that it went for seemed a little pricey to me.

How does someone get the rights to reproduce old movie posters?
I’m looking to merchandise old horror movie posters as t shirts, posters and other items. Some of these movies are public domain, but I’m sure there is still copyright on their artwork. Really not sure how to start going about this.
Hiring a lawyer would help. You need someone to do the detective work to find out who owns it, and then you need to negotiate a licensing fee and enter a licensing agreement.
My guess is that if you were up to it, you wouldn’t be asking on Yahoo Answers. Maybe a lemonade stand is a better idea, or a paper route.
It’s amazing how some people yearn for crazy movies and will really go all out searching for these kinds of movies. Even when only few scenes of such movies are displayed on posters, you see these lovers of crazy clips gluing their eyes to those posters as if they want to magically translate the poster to real movie at that moment.
What amazes one is the fact that the people that crave more for crazy kind of movies are the teenagers. And they equally go for the crazy movies that are dominated by their fellow teenagers as well. You see them running after crazy clips of brawls in school premises and clashes between the toughest bullies. In fact, some of these teenagers will even sneak in handy cameras in their school bags just to capture any of these brawls and street fights, while some of them use their cell phones’ cameras. This is really crazy!”
Have you heard about the crazy video called ‘happy slapping”? I wonder if there is any happiness obtained in slapping especially for the recipient of the slap; what an irony. In this so called “happy slapping”, you see older children raining slaps and knocks on their victims (which are their fellow children) while being applauded by their accomplices. Teenagers watch these crazy videos with so much fun and pleasure.The question now is, “what morals are the kids and teens being exposed to by creating and granting them access to these crazy stuffs?”
The real crazy movies
Do you want to have a feel of the real thrilling crazy stuffs, then watch the gangster movies! Though there tend to be a high display of aggression and lack of morals, yet they open your eyes to the world of greed, money and quest for fame. The most sought after is the master piece titled “The godfather”. Virtually every man who had set eyes on this movie really loves it! The thick names in this movie such as Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall and the parts they played, probably added to its popularity.
Remember the popular ‘say hello to my little friend’ slogan? It elicited from one of the crazy movies called ‘scarface’. Brutal is even a mild word to describe how really crazy this movie was and still is. Another real crazy stuff is the pulp fiction, which has a feature of humor and yet embedded with hostility. These are really crazy stuffs that are thrilling for the matured minds.
Well, it’s really a world of varieties, while some are chasing after the funny videos and movies to lighten their moods, a few others prefer the crazy ones and get cheered up by watching them. The good thing is that the availability of online facilities has made access to the video clips and the movies easy. By surfing the web, there’s barely any kind of video clip that you cannot find, be it humor or crazy types. Online social utility net works had also made things a lot easier. All you need to do is to sign up with any of them, but be careful to keep to their rules.
