Artwork Title: Ronbo

Ronbo, 1985

Alfred Gescheidt

Among his most successful posters was "Ronbo", published in 1985, which combined the head of a smiling President Ronald Reagan with the body of the movie character Rambo. The poster was included in the Library of Congress's 2010 exhibition Hope for America: Performers, Politics and Pop Culture, as an example of "politics and camp". [ ...A few of the others that I like are Ronbo, the comedy between President Reagan and Rambo, the fictional Vietnam War hero. I keep the postcard that Alfred made of this subject on my desk and it draws a lot of attention. Most people do not know that Alfred created this image, but it is known by almost everyone who sees it. []
