More random Japanese goodness today. This is a poster for the 1962 Angie Dickinson romance Jessica. We’re showing you this just for the art, which is to say we haven’t seen the movie. Sorry about that, but we have a lot of Japanese posters, which means if we wait until we see each flick before uploading them we’ll never get them all online. This is an image we were particularly eager to share because, one, we’ve never seen it anywhere before, and two, it’s spectacular. It just smashes the American poster to pieces. But that’s normal when it comes to these Japanese promos. Both versions feature Angie on a scooter, but the colors and graphics on the photoillustrated Japanese version just scintillate. Of course, they have an advantage because their alphabet looks so cool. The text actually does read “Jessica” by the way. The four characters on the right are the Japanese for that name. The four on the left say “nice.” We couldn’t agree more.
