Polish re-release one-sheet by Zygmunt Anczykowski (1954) "Though Polish film posters are popularly (and deservedly) celebrated for their fabulous weirdness, the two posters for Potemkin below are actually quite straightforward, harking back to an earlier, more representative era in Polish design."
