In the poster shown below, Michael Gothard's Kai has been depicted looking very much like Hansen in "The Last Valley", not clean-shaven as he actually appeared in "Arthur of the Britons." The artwork must have been from quite an early stage in the production, before Kai's appearance had been decided upon.

The poster below shows scenes from some of the earliest episodes filmed: "Arthur is Dead", "Daughter of the King", "The Challenge", "The Gift of Life", and "The Penitent Invader."

Plot synopsis

synopsis
Campaign book

This is the front cover of a four-page leaflet sent out to cinemas before a film arrived. Michael's only appearance in the leaflet is in the cover picture and the credit list.

This particular leaflet was sent to a cinema in Cork, Eire.

Campaign book

Along with the Campaign Book, this insert, suggesting ways to publicise the film, was sent.

Promotion supplement

Only a brain like that of Mr Farson, the advertising executive from ‘Herostratus’ who tried to market a young man’s suicide, could have come up with ‘Fancy dress competition’ as a way of putting a positive spin on a Kafkaesque tale of cruelty, injustice and death like ‘Michael Kohlhaas.’
