This site really is a Good Movies Collection

by Chris MaGee

In my search for a poster image to accompany Marc Saint-Cyr's review of the classic 1960 Akira Kurosawa film "The Bad Sleep Well" I stumbled acorss this Japanese website called Good Movies Collection. It brings together vintage posters of both Japanese and Hollywood films like (above left to right) Ren Yoshimura's 1950 film starring Setsuko Hara "Shirayuki-sensei to kodomo-tachi", George Stevens' 1953 western "Shane", Fred M. Wilcox's 1956 sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet". Most of the images have "Good Movies Collection" superimposed somewhere across them, but it still gives you a good hour of exploring, so have fun and click away!
