The young Antoine Doinel (Leaud) and his best friend Rene Bigey (Patrick Auffay) as they prepare to steal a movie photo of the voluptuous Gianna Maria Canale in the well-known classic Theodora, Slave Empress.

This is the earliest image that I can think of in movie history that involves the collecting (well, in this case, that starts with stealing) of movie posters and photos. There are some minor signs of handling, with a few small marginal pinholes and creases, there...

A massively influential film, which was directly remade both by Fassbinder (All Fear Eats the Soul) and Toddy Haynes (Far from Heaven). Douglas Sirk was one of Rock Hudson's mentors during his...

ANDY WARHOL'S LONESOME COWBOYS (1968) / EXHIBITOR'S PRESS MANUAL $0.00 SOLD

Printed wrappers, 11 x 8" (28 x 21.6 cm.), USA. This rather langorous film, with Viva, Taylor Mead, Joe Dalleasandro, Lou Waldon, Eric Emerson, and various other Warhol Factory members, had clear homoerotic gay overtones, and was a transition to the series of films directed entirely by Paul Morrisey, which were to follow within a couple of years.

Very scarce pressbook for Warhol's Western spoof, which was a very important early movie for Dallesandro, who would shortly become a Warhol superstar. 8 pp., with a few stamps of a film distributor, overall ABOUT FINE.
