A production-used director's chair back cover from the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer production of Fatal Instinct (1993), the Carl Reiner sex comedy thriller starring Armand Assante, Sean Young, Sherilyn Fenn, and Kate Nelligan. This piece, attributed to Sean Young ("Lola Cain"), is sold in "as is" condition, the condition it was in when acquired via a production house liquidation.
While used in production to denote a performer's directors chair, where performers could sit while waiting for their scene on a set, chair backs become collectible items in lieu of a prop, costume, or other set piece.
This particular chair back is made of black canvas material, so that it can be easily folded with a director's chair when moving to different locations.
This piece measures approximately 22in x 6.5in. One side has a stylized cursive "Sean Young" silk-screened, while the other side has "Triple Indemnity" silk-screened in a stylized sans-serif font. This piece also shows folding and natural warping from usage.
It should be noted that Triple Indemnity was the working title of the film, before it was changed to Fatal Instinct to tie it closer to the two well-known erotic thrillers it attempted to lampoon: Fatal Attraction (1987) and Basic Instinct (1992).
