The Final Programme pop art print
Based on the novel by British science-fiction writer Michael Moorcock, “The Final Programme” introduces the character Jerry Cornelius, played by Jon Finch in the film, the first in a series of “The Cornelius Quartet”, four books featuring the character.
Impactful visuals, tension-building scenes, a dangerous computerised building, glamourous set-pieces, the ambitious film sees Jerry Cornelius embroiled in the hunt for his father’s mysterious “Final Programme” microfilm.
The film’s writer, designer, and director Robert Fuest also directed “The Abominable Dr. Phibes” with Terry-Thomas and Caroline Munro, and some Tara King episodes of “The Avengers“. He also designed many earlier episodes of “The Avengers“, & “Taxi!” with Sid James.
The star Jon Finch also appeared in the Hammer film “The Horror of Frankenstein” with David Prowse & Kate O’Mara, “Death on the Nile” with Bette Davis, Maggie Smith, David Niven, and Celia Imrie, Hitchcock‘s “Frenzy” with Bernard Cribbins & Jean Marsh. He starred in “The Vampire Lovers” with Madeline Smith, and as Macbeth in the 1971 production with Martin Shaw.
Jenny Runacre also stars in the film along with the prolific Welsh actor Hugh Griffith, Harry Andrews, Patrick Magee, Sterling Hayden, Graham Crowden, and Julie Ege, as well as early film appearances of Sarah Douglas, Sandy Ratcliff, & Sandra Dickinson.
“The Final Programme” opened at the ABC Edgeware cinema in London on the 7th of October 1973.
