If You Talk Too Much, This Man May Die is a 1942 U.S.A World War II propaganda poster by Valentino Sarra. Like many posters dealing with the theme of "Loose Lips Sink Ships", Sarra's composition focuses on the sailor peering out from window of a Navy vessel. The close portrait of the sailor makes a personal appeal to the viewer. The composition allows the viewer to imagine their loved one as the helpless sailor at sea, subject to the dangers of leaked information. The theme of "Loose Lips" was a major concern during the war and resulted in many iterations of the warning in wartime poster art of this era from the United States.
