Description:

Beautiful poster for the famous 1975 drama film directed by Milos Forman, starring Jack Nicholson and based on the 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey. The designer Andras Mate often incorporated colourful stripes on his designs. These decent shapes perfectly fit to the background and they often create a joyful atmosphere but many times the dramatic effect dominates. The latter applies to this poster since to movie itself is very dramatic. The film was the second to win all five major Academy Awards (Best Picture, Actor in Lead Role, Actress in Lead Role, Director, and Screenplay) following It Happened One Night in 1934, an accomplishment not repeated until 1991 by The Silence of the Lambs. The film is #20 on the American Film Institute's 100 Years... 100 Movies list. It was shot at Oregon State Hospital in Salem, Oregon, which was also the setting of the novel. (Source: wikipedia.org)
