This is a screen shot from the 1950 sci-fi movie Rocketship X-M. Astronauts (Lloyd Bridges, Osa Massen, John Emery, Noah Beery, Jr., and Hugh O'Brien) blast off to explore the moon, but because of a malfunction, they end up on Mars instead. When on Mars, they explore and discover a ruined city of a past civilization.

There is also a sister site for Covers, for example: "Twilight Zone" www.coverbrowser.com
Adobe Cards is an Adobe promotion for Creative Suite 4 (CS4), created by Goodby, Silverstein, and Partners. Simple interaction engages a series of animation builds using only playing cards as the visual element. Production time was three months, definitely worth viewing.
