Movie Poster of the Week: “Passport to Treason”

17 May 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

I recently came across this image (on the lovely black and white photography Tumblr Green Eyes 55) and was of course struck by the element at its center. The 1961 photograph is of a street corner bar in Algeria, taken by the great French documentarian Raymond Depardon, but its focal point is a French movie poster for a 1956 British espionage thriller, Passport to Treason.

The poster is striking even from a distance so, once I tracked it down, it wasn’t a surprise to find out that it is by the great French poster artist Constantin Belinsky (1904-1999).

With Hugh Jackman currently negotiating to play Wolverine for a seventh and eighth time, Cinelinx takes a look at actors who’ve played the same role eight times or more. Who has played the same character most often? Come in and find out.

Hugh Jackman has already played Wolverine five times--x-Men (2000),  X2: X-Men United (2003) X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), and The Wolverine (2013)—as well as a cameo in X-Men:First Class (2011). Soon we’ll be seeing him fully clawed again on the big screen in X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Recently, he told Collider that he might shoot Wolverine 3 and X-Men: Apocalypse “back-to-back”, which would make a total of eight times (9 times with the cameo) that he’ll portray the Canadian mutant.  

You might be thinking “Wow! That’s amazing! I’ve never heard of anyone playing the same role so many times.” Well, for those who may not know it, »
