One-sheet for The Island of Dr. Moreau (1977, artist unknown). Cool poster. Sadly, a really bad movie.
More Richard Matheson:
Movie poster for The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), based on Matheson’s novel The Shrinking Man, adapted for the screen by Matheson himself.
One-sheet for the classic Roger Corman film The Raven (1963), screenplay by the late Richard Matheson.
May the 4th Be with You…
Of all the many, many Star Wars posters produced over the past 30-some years, I still think this is the greatest one… this and the “Gone with the Wind”-style poster for Empire. Just my opinion, of course…
I saw this about a year ago… it wasn’t great, certainly no where near the level of the original Guns of Navarone. But I love this poster!
Movie poster for Flash Gordon’s Trip to Mars (1938), the second of the three classic Flash serials starring Buster Crabbe.
Movie poster for Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe (1940), the third and final of the classic Flash serials starring Buster Crabbe. There are a lot of visual cues in this one that George Lucas updated for the Star Wars movies, including an opening crawl bringing the viewer up to date and adventures on an ice world…
Advance Poster, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, 1989
I remember being so excited by this poster… too bad the actual movie was such a colossal turd.
