Alain Delon , Le Samourai AKA The Godson, Citroen H-Van

  • £45

Alain Delon is the assassin who makes an uncharacteristic mistake; he gets seen on the job.

This is a dark, Paris set crime thriller from director John-Pierre Melville.  Le Samourai changed its name for an American audience, to "The Godson" in 1972, the date of this original lobby card.  Coincidentally this was also the date of the release of "The Godfather", so no cashing in there, then.

Le Samourai didn't need to cash in on anything; it was and is a great movie. There's a nice backgrounder here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Samoura%C3%AF

This lobby card is also notable for the Citroen H-Van behind the fedora clad Alain Delon.

Note that both top corners have a little damage. The vertical stripes are from my scanner, and NOT on the lobby card.

Origin: USA 1972
Size: 8 x 10 in / 20 x 25 cm
Condition: Good. Top corner damage.
