It's tough to make a poster personable, but that's what the poster for Fellini's Amarcord is. If you had never heard of the film before, yet saw the poster you could just say "Oh, it's a Fellini" - like art (obviously if you disregard the "The Wonderful World of Fellini" tagline). There is so much personality in this poster, which is why I love it. The colours, the theatricality and the absurdity of it all. If this were a new poster I'd instantly want to go see the movie.
