    John Alvin Original Poster Artwork for "Sand Pirates of the Sahara" from The Majestic (Castle Rock, 2001). Accomplished in mixed media on 24.5" x 36.25" artist's board mounted to foam core backing. Presented in a gold painted wooden tile 28" x 39.5" frame. Signed and fictitiously dated in the artwork, "Alvin 51." Additionally signed and dated on foam core verso, "John Alvin 2001" and retaining artist's printed label. This dynamic composition, inspired by Golden Age Hollywood adventure posters, was created as key art for the film-within-a-film and features likenesses of the principal actors executed with Alvin's trademark nuance of expression. Depicting Bruce Campbell as "Roland the Intrepid Explorer (Brett Armstrong)", Cliff Curtis as "Prince Khalid (Ramón Jamón)", Amanda Detmer as "Emily (Sandra Sinclair)", and Michael Sloane as "Professor Meredith." Elements of the artwork were also used on the film's prop lobby cards. Light production wear. In Fine condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
