Silver Screen Heroes by Joe Phillips

A bunch of really nifty retro superhero movie posters by artist Joe Phillips made the rounds a little while ago and I somehow never posted this! Bad Rob!

Both Boster Crabbe and Rita Hayworth are inspired casting choices, although I could picture Esther Williams getting the nod ahead of ol' Gilda, with her vast experience at underwater sequences (of course, we have to forget that Mera didn't appear until the 60s, long after both actress' had mostly disappeared from the silver screen). Still, this would have been a hell of a fun movie!

Crabbe was born to play Aquaman due to the whole swimming thing. Of course he made a pretty good Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, too. :-)

Rita Hayworth can play anything she likes!!!
