"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

That is some of the worst art that I've ever seen. At least , I'm not planning on buying any of those.

C'mon. It's not THAT bad. Besides, what's more important, the cover art or the DVD??? Sorry, just getting a little sick and tired of people ALWAYS complaining about the cover art. This is getting ridiculous...Posted Image

Into the Night ain't bad. Michelle Pfieffer circa 1985 would make anything look good, even the Real Genius cover art.

Anybody got the cover art for the "Amazon Women On The Moon" Special Edition? I hope they didn't Photoshop that one. Sincerely, John Kilduff... I, too, prefer the original "Into The Night" cover.

Darn! I know I have seen that cover before! Maybe Universal is using the back of the VHS cover instead? Posted Image

Edit: Or maybe it is a older VHS cover that I remember (I did rent the flick over ten years ago!)?

I know what you mean about complaints about coverart ... the usual quip is that it must have been done in 30 minutes time by a 15 year-old using Photoshop .. etc.

But these Don Knott covers are pretty lame .....
