Harper (Two pieces of original artwork from the 1966 film)
Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1966. Two pieces of original artwork from the 1966 film, likely created for proposed advertisement content. Both illustrations depict Paul Newman and Janet Leigh in bed together, Newman reclining and Leigh in a partial state of undress. Based on the 1949 Lew Archer novel "The Moving Target," by Ross Macdonald. The name of the main character was changed, purportedly at Newman's insistence following the success of his previous two "H" named films, "Hud" (1963) and "The Hustler" (1961). He followed this one with the classic Western "Hombre" (1967), so he may have been on to something. Shot on location in California. 22 x 15 inches and 20.5 x 17 inches. Charcoal and gouache on illustration board. Very Good, with moderate toning and soil to the margins. Glue residue to Leigh's midriff on one image, an apparent attempt at propriety, with a sheet of acetate laid over the other. Grant US. Hardy, BFI Companion to Crime. Silver Classic Noir. Spicer US.
