From the Achieves of American Art:
If Rose had done nothing more than movie posters for RKO, he'd be remembered. His movie assignments were for some of Hollywood's most important pictures, from film noir to musicals to horror. Despite doing a poster for Citizen Kane, this didn't prevent William Randolph Hearst from hiring Rose to do Hearst's American Weekly. Rose often contributed a painting a week, usually dealing with the famous and infamous of screen and stage, but also tackling historical and romantic subjects. Also worked for Collier's, Today's Woman, This Week. Paperback covers for Avon, Cardinal Editions, Dell, Perma Books, Pocket Books, and Pyramid.
