Role Rage

There’s something unintentionally funny about this old poster for RAGE, George C Scott’s one directorial effort. Partly it’s the heavy literal-mindedness of illustrating the title with a shot of Scott exploding in psychotic fury. A moody glower would have enlisted the viewer’s imagination and been less redundant.

But, more strikingly, the proportions are somewhat strange. I have attempted to fill in the missing sections of Mr Scott’s anatomy, using my four years of art school training, to figure out just where the original poster artist went wrong.

Ah yes, there we are.

In other news, a new limerick from me is up at Limerwrecks, celebrating the 100th birthday of Bernard Herrmann.
