Preston Sturges Movie Posters

Last week, Turner Classic Movies aired six movies by famed director Preston Sturgies, and the TCM blog, Movie Morlocks, posted a collection of movie posters from those films, including several foreign-language posters.  Pictured above is a poster from one of my favorite Sturgis films, Sullivan's Travels, starring Joel McCrea and the always lovely peek-a-boo hairdo girl, Veronica Lake.
