JOY RIDE
Life can be so nice.

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.

OCEANOGRAPHY
11:1? We'll take those odds.

Above, a Japanese poster for the original Ocean’s Eleven, with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Angie Dickinson, Sammy Davis, Jr., et.al., in a tale of the ultimate Las Vegas casino heist, which is basically just a flimsy excuse for the boys to sing, joke, drink, and look cool. They're great at all of those, and the movie is great too. It opened in Tokyo today in 1960.

ANGIE BABY
Climbing the ladder of success.

Above, a promo shot of the incomparable Angie Dickinson, who worked mostly in television, but also appeared memorably in the motion pictures Rio Bravo, Ocean’s Eleven, Big Bad Mama, and Dressed To Kill. The retouching in this photo is overdone and entirely unnecessary, but even hazy Angie is good Angie. It dates from 1965.

1957—Arthur Miller Convicted of Contempt of Congress
Award-winning American playwright Arthur Miller, the husband of movie star Marilyn Monroe, is convicted of contempt of Congress when he refuses to reveal the names of political associates to the House Un-American Activities Committee. The conviction would later be overturned, but HUAC persecution against American citizens continues until the committee is finally dissolved in 1975.

1914—Aquitania Sets Sail
The Cunard liner RMS Aquitania, at 45,647 tons, sets sails on her maiden voyage from Liverpool, England to New York City. At the time she is the largest ocean liner on the seas. During a thirty-six year career the ship serves as both a passenger liner and military ship in both World Wars before being retired and scrapped in 1950.

1914—RMS Empress Sinks
Canadian Pacific Steamships' 570 foot ocean liner Empress of Ireland is struck amidships by a Norwegian coal freighter and sinks in the Gulf of St. Lawrence with the loss of 1,024 lives. Submerged in 130 feet of water, the ship is so easily accessible to treasure hunters who removed valuables and bodies from the wreck that the Canadian government finally passes a law in 1998 restricting access.
