Friday night at the movies

Here are a few of my favorite Portuguese film titles. Beautiful bold type in b&w. Designers unknown (as they are not credit).

From above: Nazaré (1952), Sol e Touros (1949) and Chaimite (1953).

A Man Could Get Killed

Stills from the opening of ‘A man could get killed’ (1966), directed by Ronald Neame and Cliff Owen. They show the TAP Sud SE-210 Caravelle landing in Lisbon airport. Pretty times. You may watch it here.
