Gus Anton (real name or pseudonym)
« on: September 17, 2015, 08:00:19 AM »
Now I can finally call it my precious, I thought I look this Gus Anton up on the net. I can't find him and I can't recall other movie posters by him. Surely there must be a few. Maybe he uses another name or he is called Anthony Gussomething? Anyway, by this design alone he deserves a mention.

It is a stunner Wim...
All I could find on Gus is an argentinean one sheet for Macbeth. It is obviously a redrawn version of yours, in woodblock style. From the EB forum

WOW, Wim!!

Now That is one incredible looking poster. The art is just outstanding.  faint2.gif

Matias, i noticed on the Arg. poster example that Anton's name is also there. Would it be safe to assume that Anton himself also did that woodblock version, as well?

Otherwise, if it had been redone by some other Arg. artist, Anton's name would not be noted on the image, would it?

Anton's same art was used on the US souvenir program book, too:

And on a 1948 German program cover, too:
