Slide of the Day: Hell’s Angels

July 21, 2010

Hell's Angels (1930)

I love everything about this slide.  In a single image it tells you everything that you need to know about the picture.  You've got airplanes, zeppelins, war, action, excitement, and of course our blonde bombshell and her seductively bared shoulder.  The color just pops, and I especially enjoy the use of red used to tie together the fire with the film title and Jean Harlow's ruby lips.
