Robert De Niro turns 70: Classic films get '50s-style posters

By
Original Penguin has designed 1950s-style posters for three Robert De Niro films to mark the actor's 70th birthday today (August 17).

The Godfather Part II, Raging Bull and Meet The Parents have been given the reimagined posters by the heritage clothing brand.

Commerce Manager Martin Burton said: "Stars as iconic as Robert De Niro don't hit 70 everyday, so to celebrate this we decided to commission three pieces of film artwork to show our appreciation.

"As you can imagine with so many great roles to choose from, it was very tricky whittling down the shortlist to just three, and I can reveal that his performances as Travis Bickle, Jimmy Conway and Lorenzo Anello only just missed out."

The company added: "Everyone loves Robert De Niro, and will no doubt join us in celebrating the great man's 70th birthday on August 17th.

"To mark the occasion, we decided to commission a series of special film posters to remind every one of some of De Niro's most memorable roles.

"Each has been inspired by iconic 1950s artwork from film, sport and the theatre - an era very close to our hearts too as it was the decade in which Original Penguin was launched."
