I finally got hold of a great Tech person at WordPress (who identified himself as Charlie C. Thanks Charlie!). Charlie reinstalled my old WordPress Theme called Bueno - then made some adjustments that enlarge the images. Things are still not perfect because Bueno is an outdated Theme, I don't believe it's even offered by WordPress anymore.
At some point I may need to change/update things. But next time I'll be a lot wiser about it and simply check out at other WordPress Blogs first and see what they are using - until I until I find one that fits my requirements. I might have to pay for that, but that's OK as long as it works.
In meantime I'm leave things as they are and we'll get something posted up here.

Rick, if you thot Les Petroleuses / 1971 was "interesting", then you might wanna look at this ...
It's almost a copy the Les Petroleuses, but replaces Bardot and Cardinale
with Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz.
When in doubt ... make lottsa posters.
Not sure about the plot (if there is one),
but the posters look ... interesting.
My ... what a big gun you have ...
These aren't the only posters that were made for
Once Upon a Time in the West.
This batch seems to promote Claudia ... and as you see she gets
Top Bill on most of them.
That other Western Claudia did? (Rick was asking)
Starring Brigitte Bardot and Claudia Cardinale
Wikipedia says: "Pétroleuses were, according to popular rumours at the time, female supporters of the Paris Commune, accused of burning down much of Paris during the last days of the Commune in May 1871. During May, when Paris was being recaptured by loyalist Versaillais troops, rumours circulated that lower-class women were committing arson against private property and public buildings, using bottles full of petroleum or paraffin (similar to modern-day Molotov cocktails) which they threw into cellar windows, in a deliberate act of spite against the government. Many Parisian buildings, including the Hôtel de Ville and the Tuileries Palace, were burned down during the last days of the Commune, prompting government forces to blame the mythical pétroleuses."
Yeah ... well ... this doesn't appear to be a French historical docu-drama.
Renamed Frenchie King (for North American markets?)
IMDB viewers give it a "5 out of 10" !!
Michael J. Pollard ... ?
Yee Haw !!!

Lee makes it to the Top of the Mountain - A Western with John Wayne
... But he's still 5th on the Bill
Marvin ... 5th on the Bill
The Stranger Wore a Gun is a muddled mess made palatable by Scott's likeable hero, a strong supporting cast, and the novelty of 3-D at its most nakedly exploitive.
Lee moves up to 3rd on the Bill ...
Warning: Huge Spoiler below ...
... Lee gets killed ...
Lee moves up to 4th on the Bill
... a change of plans ...
The Raid (1954)
USA Feature Film
Director: Hugo Fregonese
Writers: Sydney Boehm, Francis Cockrell, Herbert Ravenal Sass
Cinematographer: Lucien Ballard
Composer: Roy Webb
Cast: Van Heflin, Anne Bancroft, Richard Boone, Lee Marvin,
Tommy Rettig, Peter Graves
Fregonese’s fact based US Civil War film, chronicling a confederate soldier’s infiltration of a small town in Vermont as he prepares to sack it, complicated by his meeting of an attractive young widow, is, with its excellent performances and uncompromising scripting, a thrilling yet intelligent examination of the ambiguities of war and human relationships.
Pretty lousy posters ...
Marvin molesting ... what? again?
MFW: about the only thing I liked about Gun Fury was that is was filmed around Sedona, Arizona - one of my favorite places on the planet.
Lee is 5th on the Bill
Monte-Walsh Theme - Mama Cass / John Barry
"Nobody gets to be a cowboy forever."
- Jack Palance
Monte Walsh ... a real maverick
MFW: Monte Walsh seemed to get decent promotion - lots of excellent posters - and boasts a stellar cast ... yet somehow seemed to slip under the fence.
But I believe this is one Western that will age well and eventually earn it's rightful place at the bar.
MFW: "100%" from critcs and "57%" from viewers ??
That's a pretty large canyon.
But I liked it.
"When we get through... you're gonna want to take a nap, sit on the porch and wait for the mares to come callin'."
Lee Marvin ... Wandering Star
"I've had the simple pleasure of being present when the sun was shining and the rain was falling.
I've had mine, and nobody can take it away from me."
