Manly Men!

I have received many complaints that I have been showing so many posters with good-looking women lately, and so few hunky he-men... well actually I haven't received any complaints at all, but there's nothing wrong with a little variety!

So here are a few handsome devils for your pleasure... We start of with John Philip law (flanked by Marissa Mell) in the rare, full-on psychedelic color variant of the French poster for Mario Bava's Danger Diabolik.

Then, one of my favorite posters of all time, the Japanese country-of-origin poster for Seijun Suzuki's off-beat yakuza classic Branded to Kill, where Jo Shishido portrays a professional killer who gets unusually excited by the smell of boiled rice.

And from noodles to spaghetti, here's Giuliano Gemma on a Swedish one-sheet "one of the toughest westerns ever made", Blood for a Silver Dollar.

And who wouldn't like to swap places with Ray Danton as Lucky the Inscrutable in Jess Franco's fun Eurospy parody, here seen on a Spanish one-sheet.

And finally, the manliest men of all time: Mexican wrestlers Blue Demon and El Santo, here seen in rare country-of-origin one-sheets for two of their most sensitive performances.

No Lee Marvin?

Sorry, I don't think I own a single Marvin poster!

The poster of Diabolik is one of my all time favorites!
