A few places back I spoke about the poster for Charlie Chaplin's City Lights and how I thought it was the second most romantic poster on the list. Say hello to the first.
Can't you just feel the love?
The look on Cher's face on this poster for Oscar-winning Moonstruck is just so joyous and happy and in love. The kicky pose with her arms outstretched adds more, so to does even that little flirt of a skirt. But it's the moon that makes it stand out. It's both thematically appropriate, and aesthetically smart.
Every little detail - I haven't mentioned the skyline or the perfect use of font - just joins together to create a poster that really overflows with romance. If you've ever experienced the feeling then you know sometimes you can't keep it inside and you just want to let everyone know.
I am in love with this poster and I want to let everyone know! And to just prove how easy it is to completely ruin a great poster, here is the DVD art for the "Deluxe Edition" of Moonstruck. ugh. I'm so glad Nicolas Cage wasn't a big star back in 1987.
