Johnny Dark , Italy 1957, Lister Jaguar, Tony Curtis
Johnny Dark ; very rare in this format, with a great portrait of Tony Curtis and a Lister Jaguar, although I’m damned if I remember a Knobbly being in the movie.
The artist is Ezio Torantelli. (See below).
Thanks to Bart Brown for confirming my suspicions about the Lister !
And thanks to one’s favourite pedant, Graeme Simpson of Malvern (and Pre-War Motor Racing Photographs) for reminding me that given the age of the Lister, this must be the 1957 re-release poster, not the 1954 first release.
It also gives a very good reason to not having seen a Lister in the movie…… Johnny Dark preceded it by three years !
We shall put it down to Ezio’s folly. There’s a fascinating Lister website here: http://www.listercars.com/#homepage
This Italian 2 sheet has been linen backed and is in stunning condition.
