More about this item:

Two b/w photo cut-outs mounted onto card (7"x 8 1/2") of Kirk Douglas & Bella Darvi from the motor racing film "Such Men Are Dangerous" (1955) aka "The Racers". Chantrell has painted highlights to the hair of both characters & has added the pencil annotation "Urgent 9am Fri...."

Jock Hinchcliffe did the Quad poster for the film (see excerpt attached) & the romantic encounter has echoes of Chantrell's photo design here. As both Hinchcliffe & Chantrell supplied work to Twentieth Century-Fox it is possible that Chantrell worked on a prototype artwork that was subsequently given to Hinchcliffe to illustrate. More likely though Chantrell could have been commissioned to work on an alternative poster design or other marketing materials for the film, hence this piece.

NB. If this item is bought alone UK buyers will have £6 of the standard £12 P&P charge refunded.
