This Is Still One Of The Most Gorgeous Images I Have Ever Seen

I get that special thrill deep down to my hollow center each time I see this poster. The color are fantastic as is the composition. Often imitated but never surpassed.

Well, now that we've heard from Rocket "Hey, I'm Bi-Polar" Davey, who doesn't even have his own blog but feels pretty free to ladle out the insults on others', I think we can all take a well deserved rest.

I was going to leave a comment about the Brothers Hildebrandt and how they painted this magnificent image, but Mr. Davey has killed the mood.

I did fuck a girl. He's just made that it was his Mother and she gave me a shirt...and it wasn't even my birthday.

I have told that numnut to go away but he keeps coming back. It's sad really. He makes me look sane and popular in comparison.

You are right, anyone who doesn't have the guys to put himself out there like I do is beneath my contempts.

Hey Rocket Davey, Why don't you come on down here to Mexico so I can whoop your ass? I have a few friends you could meet. Give you a Columbian necktie eh?

Anyway I love the poster. I get the same feeling amigo!

Kal said...

Thanks Hoby. I have a bag of frozen oranges ready for him if he ever comes around here.

Anyway....Kal have you seen the art of Star Wars 2013 calendar thats currently on sale?... It reprints a bunch of classic covers from the Marvel era.

Yeah, it's better to just ignore those jerks anyways.

I still find this poster my all-time FAVORITE SW poster. I still have mint in rolled mint condition from the day I first saw the movie in May of '77, having never displayed it. I never liked the later facial redrawings.

This one had it all, all the majestic brilliance of Lucas's vision.

The classic 'Empire' movie poster comes in a very close second.

I had that poster in my bedroom for years, until the color faded away. MTFBWYA.
