The Seven-Ups

N.p. N.p., Circa 1973. Archive of material from the 1973 film belonging to producer-director Philip D'Antoni, including several draft treatments for scenes in the film, handwritten shooting schedules and filming notes, crew memos regarding filming and location scouting, cost reports on Twentieth Century-Fox letterhead, a German film pressbook, location shooting maps, a reference photograph of D'Antoni mapping out the film's famed car chase scene with toy cars on the set of the film, and a US one sheet film poster.

Also included is a scrapbook compiled by D'Antoni containing fourteen photographs of D'Antoni during production (joined in several shots by his young children), six photographs of D'Antoni during press interviews for the film, a page of six photographs of D'Antoni on the set, and one color photograph of D'Antoni receiving a Distinguished Service Award from Rockland County in New York, where he lived at the time of production.

D'Antoni's sole directorial credit, based on an original story by Sonny Grosso, about the "Seven-Ups," a secret New York detective squad with unorthodox methods (of questionable legality). The film was shot on location throughout New York, in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, and in New Jersey and Westchester County, with many locations used during production now demolished.

Philip D'Antoni was a major figure in 1970s New Hollywood Cinema, as the producer of "Bullitt" (1968), "The French Connection" (1972), and this film.
