Design: Movie Posters – Bad Girls

High School Hellcats - 1958Ah, the wonderful 1950’s. What were they thinkin’. Most of these beautiful posters were AIP releases – (A film production company that catered to teen and exploitation double features primarily for Drive-Ins). The designs are bold and colorful and less then subtle with the focus on the girl who is most definetly bad – or about to be.  As these were mostly created for Drive-Ins in limited markets on cheap paper, not many have survived and have become quite valuable.
