Artist: d'apres Rene Peron
Important Added Info: Note that this is a "country of origin" poster for this French movie! Also note that this poster reuses the Rene Peron art from the first release French poster, but because it was not the first time the art was used, the poster designer added "d'apres", to signify that.
