Trish's Obscure Eighties Playlist

Trish, you should know you started me on a tangent with your post on the facebook:

Then Ted tagged me in his response:

Title Cards

Here are the title cards for some okay movies you might know. Some of the designs, I think, are pretty stunning, particularly the older ones. It makes me wonder who made them and what that job must be like. I always wished I could design film credits for a living. I think I'd be good at that.

I Always Liked the Paintings of Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis (December 7, 1892 – June 24, 1964), was an early American modernist painter. He was well known for his jazz-influenced, proto pop art paintings of the 1940s and 1950s, bold, brash, and colorful, as well as his ashcan pictures in the early years of the 20th century.
