WWI British Propaganda Poster, featuring the portly "patriotic" British figure (the National personification of Britain; roughly equivalent to the American Uncle Sam) John Bull. He was depicted as everything that was seen as being (for the time) the best about Britain: a middle-aged fat, rich country squire, who said what he thought and never apologised. I'm not sure if some John Prescott-type would persuade me to throw down my life in a cold, wet trench, but times were different back then.
I've always loved this. The film titles were always open for interpretation, much like the films themselves! I think that's why the movies are classic: you were never just told something in Star Wars. As the audience, you were expected to figure it all out for yourself. That's what makes good movies.
