Think back to your favorite movie.
What was it that inspired you to see it? Had you read the book? Was your favorite actor in it? Was it date night and you had to pick something you'd both like?
Or, was it the photo in the ad, that caught your eye. It sure as hell wasn't the trailer.
Iconic images from movies fill our lives. I'm not alone in my inability to name famous actors. I may not be able to tell you who was in it, but I can probably recall the poster.
Each decade has a photo or a poster that is meaningful for a generation. Remember Easy Rider?
As long as movies have been made, stills have been released to generate publicity and to gauge fan reaction. It will go on forever.
If the movie is any good this could be the photo that rings a generations chimes many years from now.
Stick in the mud Mrs. T won't go, but I'm planning on it. Just wish I had a grandgirl in town to take me.
