"Les Enfants Terribles" Movie Poster

About

Original French movie poster for the 1949. This film is based on Jean Cocteau's novel of the same name, which was published in 1929. Cocteau saw Jean-Pierre Melville's first feature film, Le Silence de la Mer, and was impressed with his work, and asked him to direct this film. The main French poster used to advertise this film was designed by Roger Vacher and is a very typical design of the period. However, Jean Cocteau designed this style B poster, which would have been printed in much smaller quantities, and used for only selective advertising. The design for this poster is extremely striking, and would have been graphically very different to other film posters being designed in France at the time. This poster is exceptionally rare with fewer than ten copies known to have survived.
