An interesting movie poster

Over on the TCM boards, we were talking about the movie Bad Day at Black Rock, which aired recently on TCM as part of the salute to Star of the Month Robert Ryan. Somebody posted the Spanish-language poster above. It's certainly visually striking, and gives an interesting perspective on what the movie is about. After all, when Spencer Tracy rents the jeep from Anne Francis and drives through the desert, I can't help but get the feeling Tracy is being watched. Then again, they do try to run him off the road.

I just wish I could remember when MGM started using that particular logo in the bottom right corner. I seem to recall it being over the main studio building by the time of That's Entertainment in 1974, but not too much before that.
