Martin Scorsese's Movie Poster Collection Is Cinephile Eye-Candy

Celluloid crusader Martin Scorsese’s preservation nonprofit Film Foundation has resurrected classics since 1990, including the recent restoration of Powell and Pressburger’s “Tales of Hoffmann.” MoMA’s ongoing Scorsese presentation centers around a rare, billboard-sized poster of that 1951 operatic fantasy, along with over 30 other marvelous spreads from the director’s collection.

Check out highlights below — courtesy of Quartz — including rare international posters for “On the Waterfront,” “I Walked with a Zombie,” “Sullivan’s Travels” and a four-panel for “The Searchers.” The MoMA exhibit accompanies a major screening series of Scorsese’s handpicked favorites, and Film Foundation restorations of “Hoffmann,” “On the Waterfront” and “The Red Shoes.”
