The Public Enemy 1931; This film made James Cagney an instant mega superstar, which is rare after only about a year in Hollywood. Here is a very colorful movie poster, for a black, and white Warner Brothers film. I’m a mega Cagney fan ever since I was a kid. He made some great memorable performances in his 30 plus years in Hollywood. We remember the Captain in Mr. Roberts 1955, and as the psychotic gangster Cody Jarrett in White Heat 1949,or the coward in The Fighting 69th 1939
Creature From The Black Lagoon 1954, This is the classic of all classic B horror films, of the great cold war era of Eisenhower 1950’s; with great B movie stars. Richard Carlson, and Julie Adams.
Casablanca movie poster, this is the film that made Humphrey Bogart a mega star. Playing club owner Rick Bland.
The Shawshank Redemption, movie poster. One of my favorite films of the 90s, a great story. I can watch it over, and over again, never gets old.
