David Bowie Poster from 1977

bowie-1977

A really colorful poster, depicting the late David Bowie, released in 1977 by Portal Publications of Corte Madiera, California.  It measures 20 x 28.   No clue about the history of this poster (if it was used as a promo for some venture or just a really nice poster release, no matter the reason, though, it is still cool.)  RIP David, you are missed!

Joe Namath’s 1977 Pro Arts Poster

joe-namath-pro-arts-poster-vert

I remember Joe from the 1970s,  mostly for his work on television doing commercials (he filmed one or two with Farrah Fawcett before she became a star in her own right) as well as making appearances on various TV series.   Of course, his greatest claim to fame is being a football player whose career in the sport began in the early 60s and lasted until his retirement in 1977.

Pro Arts released this pose of Joe in 1977 and as far as I am aware, it is their only Namath release.   In my research for this blog, I have only seen this pose offered for sale on EBay a few times, so perhaps it is one of the rarer posters from Pro Arts?

This lovely poster of Angie Dickinson is from 1977 and is one of two Pro Arts poster releases for Angie and measures 20 x 28.

Dickinson began her career in films and television in the 1950’s and by the time 1959 rolled around she had won, for her role in the Western, Rio Bravo, a Golden Globe for New Star of the Year.  She worked steadily in films having over 50 on her resume. But, it was in 1974 when she assumed her most famous role, that of female cop, Sergeant Leann “Pepper” Anderson in the television series Police Woman that ran on NBC from 1974 to 1978. This was the first successful television series to have a strong female lead. During the run of the series she would receive a Golden Globe Award as well as three Emmy nominations.
