Description:

Flisak Jerzy was one of the greatest authors of the Polish poster, illustrators and caricaturists.

He designed dozens of movie posters (from 1955 he worked with the Film Lease Central), including great posters for American westerns. 

Flisak's posters have a careless atmospher. His designs usually have a ' causaully painted with a thick brush' effect. This natural power is the major attribute of his posters combined with Flisak's inexhaustible humor. Flisak uses light colors and ingenious typography. His ouvere includes painted posters, photographic  designs, mixed techniques etc. Regardless of the technique, his designs are fresh and diverse.

He was awarded the prize of the Minister of Culture and Art in 1961 for his satirical work, in 1985 the Prime Minister's prize. The "Szpilki" weekly and the Museum of Caricature also received many awards. In 1962, he received the New York Art Directors Club award for the poster for the movie The Mercenary Murderer. His works have been exhibited in Poland, including at the Museum of Caricature, and abroad: in Austria (Vienna, 1955), Canada (1960), Lebanon (Beirut, 1961), Denmark (1963), Italy (1964), Sweden (1965), Germany (Berlin, 1966).

3:10 to Yuma is a 1957 American Western film starring Glenn Ford and Van Heflin and directed by Delmer Daves. The film was based on a 1953 short story by Elmore Leonard. The film is about a drought-impoverished rancher who takes on the risky job of taking a notorious outlaw to justice. In 2012, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The title song, "3:10 to Yuma", was by George Duning (music), with lyrics by Ned Washington and was sung at the beginning and end of the film by Frankie Laine. He recorded it for Columbia Records in 1957 (with the Jimmy Carroll Orchestra) and in 1960 (with the Johnny Williams Orchestra). It was also recorded by Sandy Denny in 1967. The film was remade in 2007, directed by James Mangold and starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. (source: wikipedia.org)
