Weekly Movie Poster #2

This week's poster is from the brilliant 1954 gangster flick Black Tuesday, which I saw last year at Film Forum's "B-Noir" retrospective. The film boasts one of Edward G. Robinson's most badass, barking-mad gangster performances. Set for the most part as Robinson is holed up in a warehouse after busting out of the joint, the claustrophobic atmosphere of this picture is reminiscent of Reservoir Dogs. The cross-hatching in this poster illustration reminds me of Robert Crumb.
