Polish posters for classic movies

I bought one of these Chaplin prints and became so mesmerized by the rest of the striking, eyeball-yanking pieces available that I have to share a small sample here. I can easily imagine collecting these prints in a serious (and expensive) way. At Polish Posters Shop you can learn about the artists and buy all sorts of mind-noodling Polish posters. The site has an entire category dedicated to film art from various countries. Links to sales pages for individual titles are below.
