I was always disappointed that The Rocketeer was not a hit upon its original theatrical release. Not only is it still one of the best comic adaptations which still holds up decades later, it had one of the greatest movie posters out there. The art deco style image that they used was very striking and I thought it served as a great introduction to the characters for mainstream audiences unaware of Dave Stevens' amazing comics. I remember looking around for a poster version at the time.
