No. 31 – Gone With the Wind

Prog 1131’s Nikolai Dante cover by Jason Brashill vs. Howard A. Terpning‘s classic poster for the 1967 re-release of Gone with the Wind (1939)

Although Terpning painted the finished poster, the design was conceived by freelance art director Tom Jung, who also conceived the posters for Star Wars (1977) and Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980), the original theatrical poster for the latter employing a similar pose with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher (1956–2016)).
