It's 1975 in Jerusalem.

Anyone read Hebrew and/or recognize the art?

Is the one on the left A Streetcar Named Desire. Looks like a young Brando and Vivien Leigh.

I'm quite certain the one on the left is Sidney Lumet's THE FUGITIVE KIND (1960), with Marlon Brando and Joanne Woodward.

I did a Google Image search to see if there was a poster just like that one, but I couldn't find one. But the Israeli distributor could have easily created its own images for theater billboards.

The lady on the right looks just like Lucianna Paluzzi. But I don't think she's never headlined a movie.

Any idea why The Fugitive Kind from 1960 would be playing in 1975?

I like the other poster. She appears to be jumping out of a coffin shooting a gun. Nutty!

I remember seeing EAST OF EDEN and A FACE IN THE CROWD as a double feature in Manhattan in 1975. In Paris, theaters show old American movies all the time. So it's not unprecedented. I don't know what the cultural scene in Jerusalem was like then or now, but who knows?

I'm going to guess
"The Last Picture Show"
is the one on the left. Timothy Bottoms and Cloris Leachman
