But WAIT! Haven't we seen this same classic manly, phallic-symbol Bronson pose on the promo art for another film?

An interesting story that you will find on the Wiki about The Mechanic:
"In Lewis John Carlino's original script, the relationship between Arthur Bishop (Bronson) and Steve McKenna (Jan Michael Vincent) was explicitly gay. Producers had difficulty securing financing and several actors, including George C. Scott, flatly refused to consider the script until the homosexuality was removed.

There's more too if you just click the link above.
