Here we have the first Movie Poster of the Week from one of my favorite poster artists, Richard Amsel. From covers of TV Guide to posters for some of my favorite movies, Amsel’s work always sticks out in my mind as the best of the best when it comes to painted movie posters. This poster for Flash Gordon was the first time I ever noticed Amsel’s name on something, which kicked off a life-long obsession. Above we have the classic American Flash Gordon design by Amsel. Below is the international version with art by Renato Casaro. And finally, we also have a Thai version of the Casaro poster, though I don’t know for sure if this is Casaro’s art, or just an imitation.
