Far from the madding crowd

This is not your usual movie poster. I came across it in a Telegraph post on how British movies were released in communist Poland with local posters to avoid semi-nudity and violence. In this particular example, the Polish version is artistically far superior. The original poster for the 1967 movie Far from the madding crowd, with Julie Christie, is a straightforward run of the mill creation (included in the Telegraph site), whereas I really like this communist version as shown above.

More on this movie in the IMDB article linked to below.
