I've been wanting to do this cover for some time.
but finding the HQ images got me rattled.

I'm looking for a high rez of the front cover and decent quality of the
Gleason pic on the back.

I'd Also love to find the font used but have had no luck.
I hope with all the well informed people here someone might be able
to point me in the right direction so I can finalize this cover.

any help or comments welcome.
I wanted to stick to the black and white style of the movie but splashed
a bit of green (green is usually a dominate colour in the pool halls)

cheers

there was never alot of pics released for this movie, to bad really a classic flick.
got the dvd but would prefer a good quality image of the front pic.

overall quality is much better now.

That new picture on the front looks good but i would make it a little smaller so you can see Paul Newmans neck because his shirt looks like a big white blob on my screen
But mighty fine cover mega

The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. It's a good non-specific symptom; I'm a big believer in it. A lot of people will tell you that a good phony fever is a dead lock, but, uh... you get a nervous mother, you could wind up in a doctor's office. That's worse than school. You fake a stomach cramp, and when you're bent over, moaning and wailing, you lick your palms. It's a little childish and stupid, but then, so is high school.

only problem if I make it smaller I'll actually be adding more white.
I'll try a colour replacement..and tone it down a bit.
need to rework the front title a bit anyway...Can't find the font name anywhere..lol

thanks all

Yes i think changing the colour of the shirt is a great idea just a shade or 2 darker to take the white glow of the shirt He looks so clean wish all my boys could keep a white shirt that clean oh well one can dream

Very nice cover m8.

I also thought about having a go at making a cover for this a couple of months ago but gave up cos I couldn't find any decent pics.

Now I don't have to worry about it (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) btw also like the disc (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

ok, done I think.
swapped the images from front to back
trashed the title and use my own font (tired of trying to find the bloody thing)
did some tweeking.

now keep in mind this movie was made in 1961...45 years ago...even on the retail cover the images would not pass muster here.

I reworked them as much as I dare to, took out the big blob of white as Tropical Storm suggested.

hope you all enjoy...will up in a bit.

cheers
