Movie Poster clichés, one of the more interesting sites reporting on modern culture, has an excellent article analyzing movie poster clichés. The one below is titled:
How do you properly express your tough-love relationship?  By standing back to back!
Nice to see the 1949 B&W Spencer Tracy-Kathrine Hepburn feature, Adam's Rib, get a run amongst that selection.

The flavorwire site features fifteen collections, each illustrating another example of an over-used movie poster idea. My favourite is #2: "There is only one color of dress for romantic comedies."

Take a look for yourself:

    1    2    3    4    5    6    7    8    9    10    11    12    13    14    15

It is very clever to make a poster of posters. The juxtaposition illuminates similar elements beautifully. I hadn't realised how strongly psychologically based movie posters were.
Thanks for the link, Henry.
