Pick Up , Original Movie Poster, Belgium 1951
Pick Up : Another in our ‘Great Dames’ collection.”La Racoleuse” translates as “The Whore”, but delicate American sensibilities decreed that the movie should be called something milder; so, “Pick Up”.
This image of the magnificent Beverly Michaels with the cigarette and the gardenia, sums it all up pretty well.
A few years later, Beverly starred in “Blonde Bait” for which I also have a marvelous poster. More on this gorgeous, under-rated dame here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0584292/?ref_=nv_sr_1
