Al Kallis only has a single drawing for “The Shrike,” another film for which Bass also did the titles. The Bass-designed ad is brilliant. Unfortunately I could not find that a copy of it in this form was ever used, either as a trade ad or a consumer ad.

What I did find was the same illustration on two pieces of material in the pressbook for “The Shrike.” One was the six-sheet poster for the film, the other was for a consumer ad, ad mat 205. Here they both are:
