A Look Back at Vintage Double-Feature Combo Posters

Throughout the ’60s and until the early ’80s, studios often grouped movies together in a two-for-the-price-of-one deal. The practice was done to profit off the reselling of older titles, but the phenomenon died in the ’80s thanks to the rise of home video. However, the old school practice of double features resulted in some interesting double bill combo posters. Studios had to think of creative ways to combine two unrelated films in a way that sold them as a pair. Some of the combinations were obvious (same lead star, same film franchise, same genre), but others had to be a bit more inventive. Above is a selection of some of the best.
