I actually think this design for Joseph Mankiewicz' Oscar-winning All About Eve was for a rerelease, but I can't be sure. Either way, it's still a great design. Playful and to the spirit of the movie. That tagline "It's all about women... and their men!" is perfect! And it actually feels like a comedy when you look at it, as opposed to some of the other designs out there.

I also love that they managed to get Marilyn Monroe on the poster, despite the fact that she's barely in the film. Definitely marketing themselves with all they have, huh?

Did you recently get an Email from this ShowHype film blog site thing? Apparently they rank me the #118 film blog on the web. I'm sure you're higher. I wonder what Nat is?

I'm curious whether other people got this Email.

I'm fairly certain that's spam (er, no offence, lol).
