Description: 

In the 1972 film "Prime Cut", Nick Devlin (Lee Marvin), a Chicago Irish Mob enforcer is sent to Kansas City to collect a debt from Mary Ann (Gene Hackman), who heads a meatpacking and clandestine female slavery operation outside of the city. Throughout the movie, congruencies between the two industries abound as Devlin and Mary Ann scheme to settle their dispute. The entire plot thrives off of the agricultural location and reality of each industry's existence in the area. Beneath the star actor's names, this poster features a colored pencil rendering of Devlin and Mary Ann, each donned with their weapon of choice, flanking an enlarged bust of a young woman in the nude. A brand that reads "PRIME CUT" encircled in red adorns the young woman's shoulder. Sunflowers line the bottom border and a farm scene with a lone cow extend the background. Text below the illustration reads "Two academy award winners... Together they're murder". A larger iteration of the brand on the woman's shoulder punctuates the bottom of the poster, splattering outward in the matter of raw meat. Credits line the lower left-hand corner.
