  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Franklin Schaffner vintage movie posters from his critically acclaimed catalog of timeless cinematic creations.

    American film and television stage director Franklin James Schaffner (May 30, 1920 – July 2, 1989) was awarded Best Director for his war film Patton (1970), about General George S. Patton which features actor George C. Scott based on a script written by Francis Ford Coppola and Edmund H. North, whom referred their screenplay on Patton: Ordeal and Triumph by Ladislas Farago and Bradley's A Soldier's Story.

    Schaffner was famous for Planet of the Apes (1968), based on the 1963 French novel La Planète des Singes by Pierre Boulle. The film was written by Michael Wilson and Rod Serling and stars Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall, and Kim Hunter. His epic drama film Nicholas and Alexandra (1971), produced by Sam Spiegel, was based on Robert K. Massie's 1967 book of Russian monarch, Tsar Nich. It was followed by Papillon (1973), screenplay by Dalton Trumbo and Lorenzo Semple Jr., based on the autobiography by Henri Charrière, starring Steve McQueen, and The Boys from Brazil (1978), starring Gregory Peck and Laurence Olivier and featuring James Mason, Lilli Palmer and Steve Guttenberg.
