Dangerous Dames: Smoking Hot Posters


Film noir thrillers may have been dark and shadowy but their posters were quite different - bold colours, flashy type, bared flesh, smoking guns & cigarettes.

To celebrate the upcoming GFF17 retrospective Dangerous Dames, we've hunted down some of the glorious original artwork from each fierce film in the strand.

All Dangerous Dames matinees will be absolutely free! Details of dates and times for all GFF17 listings will be announced on Thursday 19 January. Make sure you sign up to the GFT & GFF newsletters to be notified first.
