This Mexican lobby card for The Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941) uses what I refer to as the scrapbook approach: the illustrations are ripped off from other sources and pasted together, creating a melange of exciting events that never happen in the movie. It's beautiful to look at, but ultimately disappointing. Astute pop culture fans will note the Seaview submarine from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and cover art from Eerie magazine (or was it Creepy?).
