    John Romita Sr. and Tom Palmer - "Sahara" Motion Picture Illustration Original Art (1984). Director Andrew V. McLaglen's feature film, "Sahara," featured Brooke Shields as a trans-African auto racer who is kidnapped by an Arabian sheik. Released in 1984, this film was a cross between "Raiders of the Lost Ark," and a Harlequin romance novel. Records indicate that this finished poster illustration was an entry by penciler, John Romita Sr., and inker, Tom Palmer, to the production company for use as the released poster for the film. This gorgeous work leaves an indelible impression of the lovely Shields against a fantastic African vista. The image area measures 18" x 24" and the condition is Excellent.
