I came across recently a terrific film wesbite (that is other than S & A) called Obscure One Sheet which chronicles and discusses posters and promo material for films of the 60's and 70's - the stuff I grew up with. And a few months ago, the site posted a Variety promo ad for Warner Bros' Cleopatra Jones, announcing the film was set to come out that summer of 1973.

Oh well... no one listens to me.

You will recall that our own London based contributor Wendy Okoi-Obuli (AKA MS WOO - Get it?) traveled to the Cannes Film Festival this past May to report on the event for us. Well, while she was there, she did a video interview for Hyphenation Nation Productions about the festival, and tips for filmmakers, so we thought we'd share it with our readers.
