Another fantastic batch of ads highlighting the work of artist Frank McCarthy, who ranks behind only Reynold Brown in the world of movie poster art as far as I’m concerned. As for the film: beautifully shot, brutal, and rather disturbing when you get right down to it, Jack Cardiff’s Dark of the Sun kinda blind-sided me when I finally caught up with late last year. It’s good, though overly exaggerated recount of the Simba uprising in the Belgian Congo and the efforts to evacuate several personnel and assets from an isolated diamond mine. So brace yourselves, in a The Naked Prey kind of way, before giving it a spin.
