John Sturges’ 1976 World War II adventure “The Eagle Has Landed” is an all-action romp with a star-studded cast that is perfectly complemented by Cecil Vieweg’s beautiful artwork for the original UK Quad film poster. An elaborately detailed eagle in full flight gripping a bright red swastika with beautiful pen and ink renditions of the all-star cast makes for one of the best and most eye-catching film posters of the 70s, and it’s easy to see why this was one of the Vieweg’s personal favourite pieces of work.
