Memorial Day

Since it's Memorial Day, I thought I would throw up this one-sheet from Buster Keaton's The General. For some reason, a lot of his old movie posters aren't very appealing. I've seen a few with some very crude caricatures. The same could be said for the Marx Brothers' I suppose, but Keaton's seem particularly amature-hour. Can't fault the genius on the screen though.

However, I think this one-sheet has a really interesting layout, although it's a little top-heavy. I found it on the Greenbriar Picture Shows blog, a treasure-trove of classic film imagery.

Anyway, this has been a very roundabout way of telling y'all to take time today (or anyday) to remember your relatives and others that have died in the service.
