These are truly great posters. I don't want to sound like I love anything old just for the sake of it being old, but I can't help thinking posters these days can't compare.

I agree. I just love the art work, graphics, advertising, illustrations and design from the time between the wars, especiaally 1925 - 1935. Today's posters just dont grab me the way the older ones do.

They really are great piece's of artwork. I am ignorant of Glenn Tryon and his work in films though.

Glenn Tryon was a two reel comedy star at Hal Roach studios in the mid 1920's. In the late 1920's and early 1930's he starred in features, most notably Pal Fejos' Lonesome 1928, and Broadway 1929. Although good looking and likable, he never became a big star. Tryon was multi-talented, and from the early 1930's to late 1940's enjoyed a respectable career as a film writer, director and producer. Some of his credits include writing the screenplay for Bachelor Bait 1934, associate producer on Abbot and Costello's Hold That Ghost 1941, associate producer on Olsen and Johnson's Hellzapoppin' 1941, and director of several early 1940's Streamliner comedies (now frequently being shown on TCM).
