X-rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s

Edited by Tony Nourmand, Graham Marsh. Introduction by Peter Doggett. Designed by Graham Marsh.

Featured image is reproduced from 'X-rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s.'This magnificent book is the new, expanded, complete edition of Nourmand and Marsh’s cult bestseller, with text by renowned writer Peter Doggett. The 1960s and ’70s were the Golden Age of the X-rated movie. For the first time, these films were shown in mainstream cinemas to a fashionable, young crowd. The “porno chic” movement around films like Deep Throat (1972), The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976) and Debbie Does Dallas (1978) gave skin flicks an air of credibility that had never existed before. Johnny Carson and Bob Hope talked about Deep Throat on TV, and respected artists became involved in promotional campaigns for adult films.
Of all film genres, the X-rated movie is possibly the one that lends itself best to the use of posters as a promotional medium. Screaming taglines, provocative titles and scantily clad bodies are all elements that can be used to great advantage in poster form. Even though many of the adult movies of the ‘60s and ‘70s have faded into cinematic history, their posters remain an inspiration for graphic designers. And today they are wonderful, joyful period pieces that evoke the temptations and taboos of a bygone age of suspender belts, stockings and eye-popping, gravity-defying brassieres. To quote Steve Frankfurt’s iconic ad campaign for the soft core masterpiece Emmanuelle, “X was never like this.”

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

It's Nice That

Jenny Brewer

Celebrates the unashamedly crude … offers an alternative history of the 1960s and 1970s.

The Guardian

Sian Cain

They were an explosion of graphic design, cheating audiences with promises of raunchy scenes that never materialised.

Co.Design

Katharine Schwab

Subtle? Of course not. But there’s something almost innocent about these posters viewed in 2017’s light.

Sex Still Sells! ‘X-rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s’

“Kitty was a woman’s woman, a man’s woman or everybody’s woman. She was wild.” So reads the promotional copy for Millionaire’s Women, the 1969 “adult” film “about” bored wives and the trouble they get into when “glamorous guys and gals do their thing.” Reproduced from X-rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s, the sexy retro crowd-pleaser from Reel Art Press, this poster is one of 350 advertisements for golden-age bondage, swinging, swapping, free love, lesbian sex, orgies, and much, much more!

What did X-rated movie posters look like in the 1970s?

What did X-rated movie posters look like in the 1970s?

This poster for the 1970 John Holmes vehicle I Want You is reproduced from Reel Art Press’ naughty new bit of film-ephemera-worship, X-rated: Adult Movie Posters of the 60s and 70s. “Ripped brutally from the tortured realities of twisted lives, I WANT YOU is the ultimate in exploitation fare,” promotional copy promises. “Torrid scene after torrid scene the temperature and tension builds to a climactic orgy and explosive conclusion. I WANT YOU is a film that combines all the elements demanded by your audience plus mystery, excitement, and murder. The ending is guaranteed to be the most surprising of the year…” What can we say, it’s one of our Staff Favorite Holiday Gift Books of 2017! continue to blog
