    Description

    Where Eagles Dare by Frank McCarthy (MGM, 1968). Original Acrylic Concept Artwork on Acetate (13.75" x 16.75"). From the collection of David Frangioni, author of Clint Eastwood: ICON & Crash: The World's Greatest Drum Kits.
    Like some of the other concept pieces created for the Where Eagles Dare poster campaign by Frank McCarthy, this painting also features only one of the films three stars, probably Richard Burton instead of Clint Eastwood or Mary Ure. And also like the other paintings, it still shows the cable car falling, the castle exploding and men falling to their deaths. Obviously the angle MGM wanted to focus on was action, instead of star attraction. The only wear shown comes from the production process, including pinholes in the upper corners, a faint tape stain along the edges, and minor corner clips. This painting is on a flexible mylar or acetate. Very Fine.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
