    Description

    The Rocketeer (Walt Disney Pictures, 1991). Autographed One Sheet (27" X 40"). Action.
    Brilliant writer-illustrator Dave Stevens invented the character of the Rocketeer in 1982 out of his love for Saturday matinee heroes from 1930s and 1940s films. In 1991, the fine artist John Mattos, who has designed everything from Aerosmith t'shirts to the red to yellow gradations in the Indiana Jones logo's, faithfully painted the artwork for this now classic poster. Mattos was admonished by the art director at the time..."..keep it simple, they're not going to use any of this anyway." The poster has been autographed in the lower right by creator Dave Stevens. If you are lucky enough to get it also signed by Mr. Mattos, it would make an amazing display piece in anyone's collection. Starring Bill Campbell, Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin, Timothy Dalton, Paul Sorvino, Terry O'Quinn, Ed Lauter, Jon Polito, William Sanderson, Clint Howard. Directed by Joe Johnston. An unused, unrestored poster that might have one very minor flaw, such as a slight corner crease. The autograph in this lot we believe to be authentic but Heritage will not guarantee its authenticity. Please know this before bidding that we do not guarantee the authenticity of this autograph. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Rolled, Near Mint/Mint.
