r Film ir is about style as much as it is about crime, with poster art that features a bold look and icography all its own - a sizzling marriage of sex and violence. This is the first book to present this striking artwork in a lavishly produced, large-format volume featuring 275 colour images of posters and other promotional material from the golden age of ir. Featuring such classics as Touch of Evil and The Big Sleep, ir expert Eddie Muller also provides background information on all of the illustrators.
