In celebration of director Martin Scorsese’s enduring commitment to the preservation of international film culture, MoMA presents 34 works from the Scorsese Poster Collection. The installation is centered around a rare, billboard-size poster for the 1951 film The Tales of Hoffmann, and features other large-format pieces representing the work of directors such as Michael Powell (The Red Shoes, 1948), Max Ophuls (The Earrings of Madame de…, 1953) and Jacques Tourneur (I Walked with a Zombie, 1943), and key designers, such as Italy’s Anselmo Ballester and Britain’s Peter Strausfeld. In addition to European art house and American genre films, Raoul Walsh’s silent classic Regeneration (1915) and Howard Hawks’s Scarface (1932) (represented by a rare lobby card) are included.
Organized by Ron Magliozzi, Associate Curator, and Dave Kehr, Adjunct Curator, with Sophie Cavoulacos, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film.
Special thanks to Mr. Scorsese and Sikelia Productions’ Marianne Bower.
