Vintage Ralph Lauren

I found these old advertisements from the 80’s...
What I love about Ralph Lauren’s lifestyle advertising and collections is the fact that they always have a theme that is romantic and elegant.  I came across some old advertisements of his and was reminded of so many of my favourite movies.  
So here are my movie themes:

The film (and book) features the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Albert Finney stars as Poirot, who is asked by his friend Bianchi (Martin Balsam), a train company director, to investigate the murder of an American business tycoon, Mr. Ratchett (Richard Widmark) aboard a train with an all-star cast of suspects, including Lauren Bacall, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave, Michael York and Anthony Perkins.
The film's tagline was: "The greatest cast of suspicious characters ever involved in murder."

Lauren Bacall – Murder on the Orient Express

An American comic western film which parodies the often-filmed scenario of an iconoclastic new arrival who tames a lawless frontier town. Starring James Garner, Joan Hackett, Walter Brennan, and Jack Elam. 
This is one of my favourite western comedies.

Directed by John Ford, featuring Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, Grace Kelly and Donald Sinden. Kelly won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress (1954), and the film was nominated for two Oscars, Best Actress in a Leading Role (Gardner), and Best Actress in a Supporting Role (Kelly). The film was also nominated for a BAFTA Film Award (Best Film from any Source USA). 
Grace Kelly became fast friends making this film and Ava even stood up as one her bridesmaids when she married Prince Rainier.

Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly - Mogambo

A  epic drama-romance-war film directed by David Lean and loosely based on the famous novel of the same name by Boris Pasternak. It has remained popular for decades.
The film takes place, for the most part, during the tumultuous period of 1912–1923, the years which included World War I, the Russian Revolution and Russian Civil War, as the regime of Tsar Nicholas II was overthrown and the Soviet Union established. A framing device, from which the film is narrated, takes place sometime in the 1950s, though a specific date is never mentioned.
