A pretty nice overview of movie posters since the beginning of cinema. Shows posters from around the world, not just Hollywood.

Some interesting tidbits of info, but few truly new pieces for cinephiles. Near the end, though, author King does makes the mistake of calling Xenia, Ohio, a "fictional" town. I'm sure the residents of Xenia would be surprised to hear they're imaginary.
