Fred Pfeiffer : the MACK - 1973

(aka)...the Mack and His Pack
from 1973 w/Richard Pryor
Fred does the movie poster for this
crime drama, cult classic that inspired Scarface.

It  looks Pimpy 
Mack has nice bling.

nothing about this screams Pfeiffer to me.
Mack's collarbone looks a little Pfeifferish.
The stretch with the gangster whitewalls is
interesting. The girls look happy.

Stan Shaw had in his notes that this movie poster was a Pfeiffer. I agree, the style is too cartoony for a Pfeiffer, but then he did have some different styles. And if you blow up the picture, you can see some telltale Pfeiffer-ish painting styles especially on the ladies.

This cover is from a hard to find VHS copy, but the dvd available also carries this artwork.

I have it in my notes, but I'm trying to confirm this. I could be a McGinnis. They were all doing Blaxploitation poster art at the time (1973).

Yes. This is a Fred Pfeiffer painting. My sister Gale said she posed for 3 of the women. He simply painted them differently. But this is definitely Fred Pfeiffer's work.
