Gallery: Polish Movie Posters for American Westerns


You may think Westerns are a wholly American phenomenon, but it turns out that foreign interpretations look pretty good too. Our pals over at the Rumpus turned us on to these amazing Polish posters for American Westerns created during the Communist era, and it’s fascinating to see these familiar, classic films considered and advertised in a completely strange and often seemingly incongruent way. Click here to see even more of these gorgeous posters, and if you still haven’t had enough, be sure to check out the book from which they hail, Western Amerykanski: Polish Poster Art and the Western .
