6. The Seven Year Itch

This movie shows Marilyn Monroe on the left in a white dress and Tom Ewell standing in the background looking at her. Her dress is flying up and she’s laughing and holding it down. This image continues to be associated with her and is copied by actresses around the world.


7. Rosemary’s Baby

The poster of this movie is as unusual as the plot. It shows the silhouette of a baby stroller against a dark green background. The innocent object is made to look ominous and creepy. Mia Farrow’s blank face in the background only adds to this factor and compels the viewer to watch the film.


8. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Even though this movie did not do as well as the other two, the post was definitely impressive and will not be forgotten for years to come. It features Indian Jones simply standing and practically beckoning to the audience, promising them that they are in for an adventurous ride- as always. One almost wants to go through the door he is standing against and become a part of that adventure.


9. Big Trouble in Little China

This movie poster is said to be a parody of those that were popular during that particular period. It is exciting, full of promise and fun to look at. The poster is a mish-mash of guys using magic, ninjas, a beautiful woman and a larger than life image of a smiling Jack Burton holding a gun and a CB.


10. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Any movie poster that features the gorgeous Audrey Hepburn is bound to be captivating. It shows Hepburn standing in a simple black dress with a long cigarette dangling from her mouth. This image will be associated with the legendary actress and go down in history as one of the best posters of all time.
