The Ladykillers movie poster

Possibly one of his biggest roles (you know, aside from that other one), Alec Guinness headlined an all star cast in the 1955 dark comedy, The Ladykillers. Today would have been Sir Alec's 99th birthday and for his sake I think he'd appreciate being remembered for something other than Obi Wan Kenobi. Damn, I said it! 

It turns out the original poster for The Ladykillers was quite ahead of its time too, with a multicoloured almost pop-art look you'd be forgiven for thinking the film was a product of the 60s. Up on eBay for $260 it's a pretty cool one to add to your collection, least of all because it seems that most people have forgetten what a brilliant film it was.
