Six Pix: Initials

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.

Six Pix features “period” posters.



Included are: D.O.A. (1950); MASH (1970); S.O.B. (1981); C.H.U.D. (1984); and JFK (1991); I.Q. (1994).

We’ve got some wildly disparate movies here, linked only by their abbreviated titles. So we’ll be brief as well: S.O.B is the winner…and that’s no B.S.


Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below!

    The poster for S.O.B. is certainly the most interesting. The image on the MASH poster is eye-catching, but I always think it looks like a poster for a science-fiction-mutant movie, like “Fingerlings From S.P.U.D.” I’d never guess it was a poster for a movie about an army field hospital. I’d never heard of C.H.U.D. so I looked it up. Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers created by nuclear and toxic waste. Cool!

    IMO the M*A*S*H poster is the most symbolic – set during the Korean War but protesting the Vietnam War. The two fingers making the peace sign with the army helmet sitting atop the shapely legs in spike heels, very symbolic of what was going on in America (anti-war protests) and Vietnam (bloody combat) in 1970, when M*A*S*H came out.
