Love vs. Marriage: Film-Makers vs. Film-Marketers
"Love & Marriage... go together like a horse and carriage".
For those married, divorced, in a serious relationship or scared to death of settling down, just about everyone can relate to the "challenge" and delicate balance between "love and life".
This also extends far beyond everyone's happy home; sometimes even on the big screen. We've compiled a bunch films about Madison Avenue, each of which was positioned and marketed in several different ways, depending on the audiences the front office tried to lure into theaters.
Culture Editor Kurt Brokaw's original review of the film is also included in a few, so after you've checked out all the promo posters, decide for yourself if they realistically depict (or even come close to) Kurt's original take on the film.
As we approach the Summer blockbuster marketing campaigns and films, we investigate this sometimes passionate balance (or passionate disagreement) between film-makers vs. film-marketers. One can only imagine the "debates" between the two, on-and-off the set!
As the song goes, "you can't have one without the other"...
