Six Pix: Cigarette

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

Close, but no cigar. Not here anyway. Just cigarettes in this Six Pix.


Included are: The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934); Gilda (1946); Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961); Chinatown (1974); Body Heat (1981); and Pulp Fiction (1994).

Cigarettes may not be good for you but they do make for some pretty cool movie posters. (And the films that they represent aren’t too shabby either!) You really could make a good argument for picking just about any of these one-sheets. Though whittling down the choices is, in my estimation, a herculean task, I think I’ve narrowed it down to two: Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Chinatown. In the end, the iconic image of Audrey Hepburn and her foot-long cigarette holder is impossible for me to ignore.


Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below! (And please feel free to suggest future topics.)
