DRAMA AND FILM CLASSICS

DRAMA & FILM CLASSICS: This category is something of a catch-all.  Here you will find the posters for films that do not easily fit the other genre categories.  Drama films include such titles as Annie Hall, Educating Rita and Frankie and Johnny. Film classics encompass films like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Graduate, Gandhi and Saturday Night Fever. The definition of a film classic is, perhaps, a purely subjective judgement but these are generally films that have passed the test of time and have lasting appeal to a mass audience. Alternatively, a film classic is a movie that has added significantly to the development of cinema as an art form or is otherwise of historical or cultural importance.  In short, if you can’t find it anywhere else, the poster you are searching for might be in the drama & film classics category.  Scroll down for a selection of original posters we have in stock for this category or search our inventory for specific drama & film classic titles.  All our film posters are guaranteed original and, unless stated otherwise, were for the first release of the film.
