Poster art featuring Ned Scott stills discovered

on Friday, 06 September 2013. Posted in News

 

   Movie poster art featuring Ned Scott film stills is a category of film promotion which was very important in the ultimate success of a fim at the box office.  I have just discovered an excellent poster art site which carries many examples of film posters in which Ned Scott stills were used for effect.  This example comes from the film "Shanghai Gesture", 1941, in which Gene Tierney stars along with Victor Mature.  The film was directed by Joseph von Sternberg.  The photograph below of Ona Munson as "Mother" Gin Sling, the madam of a renowned gambing house in Shanghai, was one of Ned Scott's personal favorites.  He always had this image displayed in his home.
