West German movie posters were among the ugliest in the world - fact! Bad art, bad graphics, just bad.. but there were exceptions. This abstract poster for Leone's A Handful of Dollars could almost have been designed by an East German or Polish poster artist.

And this sensational piece for Russ Meyer's "ode to the violence in women" Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is an acceptable alternative for those of us who can't afford the US original.

Italian horror movies faired pretty well too, like these two Mario Bava classics - The Whip and the Body and Kill Baby... Kill! (though it's anyone's guess what "Dr. Dracula" has to do with the latter!)

And while they're not the prettiest posters around, these two spy pieces are still a lot of fun, with a distinct German feel...
