Peak Show

And the Oscar goes to…Bob Peak (1927-1992)!

That’s right, the fourth floor gallery at AMPAS (i.e., The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences) in Beverly Hills, CA is having an exhibition now until mid-April of the greatest one-sheets drawn by the 1960’s and 70’s poster king. So if you’re not impressed by this year’s nominees, you will certainly find a few winners from Mr. Peak’s best pictures.
