The Parent Trap (1961) Poster

At first glance this poster for the original The Parent Trap isn’t very summer camp with its focus on the scheming twins post meeting at Camp Inch trying to get their parents back together, but when you look closely you can see line drawings of kids on a canoe and another with a tent in the background of a kid running. Forget Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s take on it and the straight remake in the ’90s that comes up whenever Lindsay Lohan gets arrested or goes back tor rehab. Nothing beats the original starring Hayley Mills in the two title rolls.
