Witchery on the silver screen
“New additions to the library’s Witchcraft Collection will make their public debut in the Straight next week: historical witchcraft movie posters from 1937 to 2013. In conjunction with Cornell Cinema, the library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections will display a selection of the newly acquired posters in Willard Straight Hall, before screenings of “War Witch” and “I Married a Witch” Thursday, Sept. 26. “Witchcraft is not only a minor or marginal topic for dodgy B-movies, cheap comedies, or erotic horror, after all – even though these subgenres are well-represented,” says curator Laurent Ferri.” (via Cornell Chronicle)
