Frank McCarthy Art



These first two pieces are from 'Thunderball' and 'Around The World Under The Sea'. McCarthy is also famous for his illustrations of the old West. I love how photorealistic and dynamic that his stuff is.

He's like an Atari 2600 cover artist, only better. AWESOME

Maybe I'm a bit out of touch with the 50's action films (besides the Bond films) but I hadn't heard of 'Danger Diabolik' until a few months ago when I first saw one of your posts. Upon seeing some of the screenshots I immediately added it to my Netflix Que and caught it a few weeks ago. What an awesome film. I watched it twice..and than I scoured the 'interwebs' hoping to find that they made a few sequels..to no avail. Thanks for putting me on! This artwork for the film reminded me of how great it was.

I too knew nothing about Diabolik other than his comic book appearances, J. Bond and I am a huge fan of John Phillip Law. That character has enough going for him to be the star of 10 movies. Now THERE is a remake I would like to see Hollywood tackle. Or maybe not.
