Jeff Hong - “Unhappily ever after”
Wow this post hurt my inner child
Ugh, this makes me want to cry TT^TT
This was probably the greatest thing I’ve seen all day!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, my new favorite gif.
Remember the old Mad Magazine movie spoofs? They seem so quaint now; then again, the target audience was ages 12 - 15 so it’s not as if it was x-rated stuff. This edition is from 1970. The source material (in case you don’t already know) is below.
As an added treat, a Japanese poster for the same movie … seems a little more risqué, doesn’t it?
And above is a retro-groovy 1960s rom-com advert. I suspect this is actually a recent creation probably made with Photoshop, complete with authentic-looking wear and tear.
What gives it away, for me, is that in 1969, Natalie Wood was the bonafide star and sole box-office draw of the film, and she (or, more likely, her management) would never have agreed to 2nd billing as shown in this ad. Still, I think it’s a cool poster-ette.

Elizabeth Taylor by Gianni Bozzacchi, 1969.
Gene Tierney in Sundown, 1941.
She looks surprisingly contemporary here - PF
Carol Lynley … somehow the staging of this photo definitely foreshadows her future movie The Poseidon Adventure.
