The Longest Day Poster

UK Quad cinema poster for the WWII classic "The Longest Day" (1962) with poster illustration by Tom Chantrell.

Please note that this is a re-release poster denoted by the introduction of "Gert Frobe" to the cast list (following the success of "Goldfinger") & the switch of order between "Stuart Whitman" & "John Wayne" (presumably to give Wayne more prominence. Please note the first release poster for comparison: https://www.moviepostermem.com/The-Longest-Day-Poster/62050 Otherwise the first release & re-release posters are identical.

"The Longest Day" is an excellent example of a Chantrell Quad. Unlike many illustrators who painted from designs supplied by others, Chantrell invariably both designed & illustrated his own posters. In this case Chantrell presents the view from inside a German beach fortification, the situation poised for massive conflict, a great device for stimulating the excitement of the viewing public.
