Rare PLANET OF DINOSAURS (1977) Poster

 A variety of Star Wars spacecraft meet prehistoric beasties in this rare poster for 1977's Planet Of Dinosaurs. This image was recently posted on a Facebook stop-motion animation fan group, and identified by Dinosaurs effects artist Jim Aupperle as being of Lebanese origin.

Regardless of its origins, it's delightful example of International hucksterism, 70's sci-fi pop art... and shameless copyright infringement! Enjoy!

  1. Here's a different poster for that movie, this time ripping off Frank Frazetta.

    1. I missed that post. Today is the first time I've heard of this movie. Which is why I follow you, all the cool stuff I didn't see back in the 70s.

  2. There was another poster for the film which shamelessly featured an X-wing fighter and that one appeared on the cover of a recent limited edition DVD release.
