My husband and i picked this item up at a estate sale. It was covered with a poster on the outside of the glass frame. We found this Goodyear blimp/Bo Derek print inside the glass frame. We can't find out anything about it. It is dated 1971 3/5 the signature of the artist is in pencil and so is the Goodyear and 3/5 that is written on the bottom. It is a really cool print with the Goodyear Blimp flying over a field and 3 Bo Derek pictures on the top of the print. We only paid 10 bucks for this item and think it is a wonderful print. If anyone knows anything about this we would love to know. The artists name is E. Goodwin or E. Good---- it is hard to read the cursive writing. Hope to find out more about it.

    Good Morning! Sounds like you have an interesting rare poster. Bo Derek would have been only 16 in 1976. But there was a movie in 1971 that featured the Goodyear blimp fly over Iowa. Pippa Scott (she looks like one of the women on your poster) was in it, along with many other actresses.
    The fictional town of Eagle Rock, Iowa, got a special message from a Goodyear blimp in the motion picture "Cold Turkey". What did the President of the United States send in his message to the small town?

    His love. Although best known for his work in television, Norman Lear assembled a cast of all-star television greats, including Dick Van Dyke, Jean Stapleton and Bob Newhart, for "Cold Turkey", which was released in the United States in 1971. Residents of Eagle Rock take up a challenge to quit smoking for 30 days, in order to win a huge cash prize. The Goodyear blimp is their to celebrate their success, giving the residents the news that the President sends "all his love" to them--which led nicely into the closing song by Barry Newman--and announcing that a new missile plant will be built in town. Ironically, Bob Newhart, who played tobacco company flunky Merwin Wren, had to give up smoking in real life because it caused nose bleeds. And Dick Van Dyke, who played Reverend Clayton Brooks, struggled for years off camera to quit.

    Maybe the artist was referring to this Movie.
