The Marseille Contract is a 1974 British thriller film directed by Robert Parrish and scored by Roy Budd. It stars Michael Caine, Anthony Quinn and James Mason. The film was released in the U.S. as The Destructors.

Set in France, the story concerns a U.S. agent (Quinn) attempting to bring down a French drug baron (Mason) by hiring an assassin (Caine) who turns out to be an old friend.

The highlight of the film is the competition between Rita in a Porsche 911S and Deray in an Alfa Romeo Montreal.
