Name That Movie
posted: November 25, 2007
I started a series of drawings in my sketchbook, it's a kind of visual quiz of great movies. Each series is  a sequence of six drawings of shots from classic films (in the order they appear on screen.) No portraits of movie stars, just iconic images from the film. When I finish 100 movies, I'll see about getting them published as a book.
A book like this could sell dozens.

I LOVE these sketchbook drawings. I'd be one of the dozens to purchase this.

Swoon!

Very cool, Paul. That thing you do with the reversing of black out to white is very appealing and instantly turns a common sketch into an uncommon one.

Great stuff ! Beautiful typology Paul.

And for Bonus Points----match the composer to the movie Chico Hamilton Quintet Max Steiner Adolf Deutsch Franz Waxman Bernard Herrmann One is a compilation produced by T Bone Burnett (easy one) AND extra extra bonus points if you can name the tune penned by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby which is included on the soundtrack of one of these outstanding motion pictures. I now turn this post over to Lou Brooks. (AND NO GOOGLING!) Great stuff, Paul.

Wonderful stuff! I really like the switching between black line/white bkgrd and white line/black bkgrd.

Wonderful stuff — cagey, elegant art thinking AND NO "OFFICIAL" ANSWERS ANYWHERE. I love it. Really, you're going to sell more than dozens of this future book...
