Easily the most iconic movie poster around, this work was originally on the book cover. Artist Roger Kastel painted the work, and used stuffed sharks from the NMNH and a model named Allison Stern (who now has part of the damn Central Park Zoo named after her).

No one knows where the original 20×30 inch work has ended up; it disappeared in the 70s. I’m more surprised that Kastel let the movie use the image FOR FREE. Yeesh! I don’t know anything about royalties, but darn!, seems like a good one gone, if you ask me.

Now, one thing I might like more than a skinnydipper featured on a movie poster, is a minimalist one.

Or a Lego one…
