10 Hilariously Deceptive DVD Covers

DVD cover for "Born to Win"Born to Win

This excellent 1971 comedy/drama is another fave on the public domain DVD circuit, thanks less to its junkies-in-New-York storyline or the draw of stars George Segal and Paula Prentiss than the presence of Robert De Niro in an early supporting role as a street cop. All of them use billing and art that make De Niro look like the star, and most choose a film still or publicity shot of a much older fellow than the scrappy kid in Born to Win. But the most hilarious is the cover above, which uses a still quite clearly pulled from Cape Fear, released 20 years later.
