"Enemy Uniforms"

UK World War II propaganda poster

At first, my response was "duh," but then I thought about it.  It's interesting to note, after 60 years of these uniforms in movies, that people in the UK would not have noticed them on sight.  (Everything has a beginning.)

S.A. Mann Brand

A 1933 poster advertising the film S.A. Mann Brand.

Link.

This is one of the better (artistically speaking) posters from Nazi Germany, most likely because it was advertising a propaganda film.  My theory has always been that the failed artists, like Hitler, that made up the higher rungs of the Nazi party were probably threatened by illustrative talent, but that did not appear to be the case for film.
