In the details.

I thought I'd make a period gig poster for set dressing in my Film Noir, inspired by a specific one in the movie "Idlewyld", which I'm certain was inspired by old Cab Calloway or Cotton Club posters. It'd be just the sort of thing the characters in the film would go see.

To give it a more period feel, I gave the singer Betty Boop eyes.

This sort of thing in the background goes a long way to establishing setting even though no one will really pay attention to it.
