AllPosterForum recently had a Sci-Fi smackdown about the iconic 60’s Barbarella poster featuring the artwork of several top movie poster artists such as Robert McGinnis (top left), Boris Vallejo (top, third from left), and The Hildebrandt Bros (top, far right)…
No, no, not
Joseph McCarthy and the Hollywood blacklist! I’m talkin’ Frank McCarthy (1924-2002), the longtime illustrator whose career spanned over 50 years, doing magazine covers and paperbacks (Avon, Bantam, Dell) and brought us the high-octane one-sheets for The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape ( Paul Crifo did the International version), and many more, including split-duties with on the James Bond posters for Robert McGinnis Thunderball and You Only Live Twice.
Mr. McCarthy quit commercial work in 1974 and, like many of the other greatest poster artists of his generation, such as
John Solie, Howard Terpning, and Robert Tanenbaum, moved to Arizona to focus his talents on Western art.
You know you must be pretty good if they make a
documentary about you. And that’s exactly what they did with Robert McGinnis.
Famous for his iconic
James Bond movie posters, McGinnis was also great at drawing the ladies. Apparently, he was so detailed that he once even requested Sophia Loren’s dress be sent to his studio to complete the poster for Arabesque.
