RIP John Alvin

Who? You may not recoginise the name, but you would sure as hell recognise the images. A legend of the art of film marketing, Alvin was responsible for some of the most popular and enduring poster art of all time - ET: The Extra Terrestrial, Blade Runner, Star Wars, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and #56 on Stale Popcorn's own 100 Greatest Movie Posters countdown, Phantom of the Paradise. Internet Movie Posters has a tribute up, and here are some of Stale Popcorn's favourite Alvin designs. Check out the rest at IMP or check out his official website.
