kubrick vs beatles LOTR

made for this month's contest at superpunch.blogspot.com/

 

the concept:

Once upon a time, The Beatles were interested in starring in a live-action version of The Lord of the Rings with Paul McCartney as Frodo Baggins, Ringo Starr as Sam Gamgee, George Harrison as Gandalf, and John Lennon as Gollum. They asked Stanley Kubrick to direct, but he declined (according to Wikipedia), or Tolkien killed the idea (according to Peter Jackson).

 

so here's the original movie poster i found looking at the attic... pretty cool isn't it? kubrick was a genius :-)

 

 

 

UPDATE: [18 jan 2011] replaced my original b&w version with this colored version :-)
