The 1950s era was an exciting time for the new 'teenagers' with the popularity of drive-in theatres in the late 50's rising to over 4,000 outdoor screens. There the feature would be "Attack of the Crab Monsters" or "The Blob". The more mature viewer tended to stay at home and watch their new television sets - approximately 10.5 million U.S. homes possessed a television set in 1950. Post WWII saw films idealizing conventional portrayals of men and women and the younger generation wanted new and exciting icons and symbols of rebellion. The anti-hero was born in the faces of Paul Newman and James Dean replacing the stalwart actors of Old Hollywood such as Tyrone Power, Robert Taylor and Van Johnson. The anti-heroine in the beautiful shapes of Ava Gardner & Marilyn Monroe. Teenagers and young people, Rockabillys & Rock n' Roll lovers started queuing for films called 'The Creature from the Black Lagoon', 'April Love' and 'Don't knock the Rock'. Movie Posters adorned the exterior of the cinema tantalising the awaiting crowd eager to see their favourite star up on the screen. Film Posters showing the latest westerns, dramas, comedies, musicals. Window cards announcing the up and coming features. Luckily for us, old movie posters, vintage window cards, lobby cards and original publicity stills still exist for us to enjoy all over again. So whether it's a vintage western, vintage war film or just a good old tear-jerker then Patchwork Peggy's Emporium has a growing range of 1950s film posters.
