More about this item:
A mysterious piece of original painted artwork from Chantrell (20"x 21" max overall). With help from Sim Branaghan, we have deduced that the "No Mercy" film featured in this prototype for a Quad double-bill, was the 1973 American film "The No Mercy Man". The film was eventually released on a stand-alone basis as "Bad Man" in the UK in 1976 (see finished Quad below). It is likely that the "No Mercy" artwork variant here thus never made it into print.
Nonetheless, this is an attractive piece with lots of characteristic Chantrell features. It is colourful, action packed, includes a fetching damsel in distress & the title script is typically inventive & "arty". Chantrell was obviously pleased with his work as he signed the piece as shown.
