FILMS… The Secret of Dorian Gray (1970) : Film Posters

 

Film posters on that Dorian Gray film from the seventies…

 

You’ve read the review now check out these film posters.

 

So in the first of my Posters and Pics pages, I’ve found some great film posters featuring the lovely Helmut Berger in The Secret of Dorian Gray (1970) which I reviewed HERE. As he inspired me to add this page, after seeing those groovy 1970s credits and the posters while researching more on this movie. The film telling,of the man who traded his soul for eternal youth with his portrait taking the brunt of his lifestyle.

 

So first lets go to Italy…

The original Italian title for this movie, Il Dio Chiamato Dorian translates to A God named Dorian which kind of sums this movie up. with literally everyone falling for the flaxen haired character.  This film was originally in Italian and then was (sadly) dubbed into English, with the exception of Herbert Lom.

 

Onto the English Language posters

Love these rather cool and funky 70s English posters above… and adore those taglines. The third poster reminds me of the painting in the film, and the poster was designed by Ted Coconis.  Coconis, an artist who also created film posters for Labyrinth (1986) and Fiddler on the Roof (1971).

 

To the Spanish one…

This one includes the picture from the movie (from before Dorian embarked on his hedonistic life) along with some nice wee pics inspired from the movie. The Spanish title also translates as The Portrait of Dorian Gray. But somehow this title sounds more dramatic and exciting in this language.

 

Onto France…

Another great film poster of the movie, the French title translating as The Depraved

 

And finally to Germany…

And finally the German language poster,  which the tagline translates as “The exciting love story of a wild (or should that be Wilde.. as in Oscar Wilde) unrestrained love”. The title again is translated as The Picture of Dorian Gray.  It also proves Helmut Berger is as pretty as his picture… in er lots of different positions.
