Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton epitomize a Hollywood love story. Taylor, who herself was married eight times, was married to Burton twice, the first in 1964, the second in 1975. Their romance began in 1963 on the set of the epic movie, Cleopatra, and would end with Burton’s passing in 1984. It was a relationship that has been described as, “dramatic” “obnoxious” “passionate” “bitter” “loving” and “familiar”. Taylor once remarked after Burton’s death, “maybe we loved each other too much”.
The 1968 movie Boom, was Taylor’s and Burton’s eighth movie made together. They would go on to make a total 12 movies together spanning a decade, including Boom which was based from a play by Tennessee Williams. This Polish Medium movie poster was released in 1970, when the movie was shown in Poland. The poster measures 23″x 32″ and the artwork was drawn by Maciej Hibner. While not a conventional poster design by US standards, the artwork is extremely creative, abstract and dramatic. It is one of the most artistic posters I have worked on to date. It was a pleasure to work on this poster, which would be a gift to a relative.
