The image has become iconic.  The group photograph of the 1945 Yalta Conference in February 1945: the unhappily marginalized WSC, the ailing, failing FDR, and the grumpy Uncle Joe greedily counting the chickens he was about to hatch.

The scene will be recreated in the course of Into the Storm, the HBO-BBC series about Churchill’s war leadership that premieres tomorrow night.


Then there was the Photoshopped (or was it, in fact, the unretouched?) version in a Diesel Jeans ad a few years ago.
