Robert McGinnis Painting the Last Rose Of Summer - Trailer

His name is Robert McGinnis and since the early 1960's he has painted some of film history's most icon movie posters such as Breakfast at Tiffany's, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds are Forever and more recently Disney's The Incredibles.

This film covers his movie poster art and other pop art culture illustrations for hard boiled detective paperbacks from the late 50's to the 70's. Mcginnis specialized in creating what fans and collectors called "The McGinnis Woman" intelligent, sophisticated, femme fatales with bodies women would die for and men wanted. McGinnis discusses his early years when he worked as an apprentice at the Disney Studios in the 40's and his early film poster art for classics such as The Odd Couple, Barbarella and countless others.

McGinnis also allows the camera to record his entire painting process creating one of his beautiful "McGinnis Women".
