Ingmar Bergman's GYCKLARNAS AFTON [SAWDUST AND TINSEL] (1953) $2,500.00 SOLD
Vintage original 27 x 39" (70 x 100 cm.) poster, Sweden. Harriet Andersson, Hasse Ekman, dir: Ingmar Bergman; Svensk Filmindustri. Originally released in the U.S. under the title The Naked Night, this searing film is about a small traveling circus in rural Sweden in the early twentieth century. Ekman's anguished performance as the aging owner of the circus clearly channels Emil Jannings' work in various German expressionist silent films, among them Dupont's Variety. Harriet Andersson, in the central role of Ekman's young and rather steely mistress, clearly anticipates the powerful women's' roles which will emerge in later Bergman films.
