Design: 1970’s Porn Movie Posters – Surprisingly Tame

These must seem like a complete anomaly to anyone growing up in the 2000’s. A poster for a porno movie? Where were these shown? Porn existed before the computer? Well, yes it did. The people probably weren’t quite as pretty or well groomed – hair-wise, but it most certainly was alive and well. The 70’s was the time of the big porn boom – Deep Throat, Devil in Miss Jones, Linda Loveless, Marilyn Chambers, John Holmes, etc., etc., etc. Even Johnny Carson was talking about Deep Throat on the Tonight Show (Pre-Jay Leno). These posters are oddly enough quite innocent (sort of). Tucked between the creepy poster art of the 60’s, when it was still underground (full nudity, weird fetish, awful hodge-podge design) and the bright shiney photo style of the 1980’s, these at least tried for a little design savy. Pretty good illustrations, crazy type and a sense of humor. It was all suggested, even though you knew you were going to see some hard core action.
