The Marseille Contract

An interesting piece of original Vic Fair painted artwork (22"x 32") for the 1974 thriller, "The Marseilles Contract". Though quite well finished, this appears to be an unused prototype, most probably a design for a UK 1-sheet poster. Curiously the artist has signed his name & dated "71". This was probably inscribed in more recent times & Vic made a mistake with the dating (whilst some films were in pre-production for long periods, 3 years is not credible). The artwork has been applied to paper which has subsequently been mounted onto card. An interesting conceptual design with a good image of Michael Caine incorporating a dripping blood motif.


The finished Quad poster was executed by Vic Fair's colleague Arnaldo Putzu (see below), the Quad almost certainly based on a design by Vic Fair.
