The Long Goodbye one is in the tradition of this, I guess, or of Mad magazine: (x-post, speaking of!)

Are there any posters in the last 15 years that are a throwback to this style?

I've never seen that Nashville poster upthread before! Altman's preferred poster artwork ended up on the soundtrack instead:

Wikipedia's alt text:
A man in a dinner jacket holding a pistol is in the centre of the picture. Various scenes and images surround him, including two women in bikinis, a midget with a pistol, a car stunt and explosions. At the bottom right, oversized and pointing towards the man in the dinner jacket, is a golden gun, with a hand holding a bullet, about to load the gun. The top of the picture has the words "ROGER MOORE as JAMES BOND 007". At the bottom are the words "THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN"

Opening this thread and seeing Goldblum on the "Thank God It's Friday" poster makes me want to use that as my social media avatar.

at some point i looked it up... i want to say kate jackson is an aspiring singing star and there's probably like one scene where they're in a bathtub together. the rest i have no idea.

Between the Lines (1977). Pretty sure this has been posted but Ctrl-F didn't turn it up. Saw this movie tonight in a gorgeous restoration and it's a thumbs up. Pretty aimless and the ending is kinda frustrating ---- it definitely reads as a male-written script directed by a woman who's trying to tug it back towards really understanding her female cast ---- but there's a ton of good stuff in there, especially if you get a kind of warm fuzzy feeling from seeing 70s domestic and workplace interiors dressed to be maximally sloppy and piled up with books and papers and shit. Also Goldblum is already peak Goldblum.
