2019 - After the Fall of New York

2019 - After the Fall of New York (1983) is one of the cheap copycat films that followed the great success of the Road Warrior.

Like many of this genre it’s an Italian production where producers had a long experience with the peculiar Sword-and-Sandal films. Like the Road Warrior films their Italian sucessors preferred desert sceneries which resulted much cheaper than that filmed in cities.

Therefore a lot of these films look like Hercules meets Star Trek in the desert.

The Hangman

These magnificent dark romantic paintings are by Paul Julian one of the best artist of warner brothers in the forties and fiefties.
They belong to the animation movie THE HANGMAN produced already in 1964. I suppose Stephen King used part of it as inspiration for his Dark Tower novels.
Anyway, more of this terrific artwork you’ll find here.
