I copied this poster for Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye from a tweet by Cassian Elwes. It’s one of my favorite films, an irreverent adapataion of Raymond Chandler’s novel. The poster is by Jack Davis, the great MAD Magazine cartoonist. I like how the poster uses the MAD format to make itself hip and to poke fun at itself at the same time. The movie itself has none of this snarky comic tone, but it doesn’t matter. The poster captures the film and the era perfectly.
