The visual exaggerations in this vintage African Queen poster are fairly comical. Humphrey Bogart‘s Schwarzenegger-like physique, Katharine Hepburn looking like she’s 28, etc. 50s-era posters were about a very curious mythology based on how the poster artist would improve upon all aspects of the movie (including the physical appearances of the stars). Always imaginative. Has any recent one-sheet tried to ironically resuscitate this aesthetic?
