Happy Birthday, Frank!

(December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998)

Frank Sinatra would’ve been 99 today. To mark the occasion, along with playing his Christmas record about 12,000 times, I’m posting the original one-sheet art for Von Ryan’s Express (1965).

Frank McCarthy’s work for this poster really knocks me out, one of my all-time favorite pieces of movie art. Click on it and it’ll get huge so you can study it.

My mom was a big Sinatra fan and really loved this movie, even though the ending always tore her up. This if for her, too.

By the way, the Blu-ray of this one looks pretty good. But they shoulda featured McCarthy’s painting on the package.
