“Three years before the United States declares war, The Rocketeer leads America’s first battle against the Nazis.”
This original 1991 US one sheet film poster is a steam punk art-deco delight featuring the incredible artwork of John Mattos. Truly beautiful imagery that’s perfectly suited to the Republic Pulp Serial approach of Joe Johnston’s “Rocketeer”. Based upon Dave Stevens’ graphic comic novel the Walt Disney Studio produced an enjoyable stylised romp set in the early days of pulp comics and superheroes that quickly became a cult favourite. The Advance ‘Summer 1991′ country of origin US one sheet movie poster offered here is by far the most sought after of paper produced for the Film. The portrait format perfectly suits John Mattos’ dynamic super hero artwork. This unrestored, original rolled (as issued) example displays to excellent effect and is one of a very limited number of posters produced and distributed with a high gloss finish; a visual delight that really takes an already incredible looking poster to another level. Genuinely scarce and highly desirable, not just to film buffs (the art-deco design appeals to number of collectors) this superb piece represents a fantastic piece of desirable film movie memorabilia.
Trivia: Artist and creator of the ‘Rocketeer’ Dave Stevens played the man in the test flight movie, who has the rocket pack strapped to his back (the test pilot).…more detail
