ANDY WARHOL'S BAD (1977)
ANDY WARHOL'S BAD (1977) $250.00

Set of six (6) 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) vintage original photos, USA. Carroll Baker, Perry King, Susan Tyrrell, Geraldine Smith, dir: Jed Johnson; New World Pictures. Baker plays "Hazel," a vicious beautician who has a sideline of providing ruthless women to do hit jobs. Although this film is not as well known as the earlier Warhol-produced films directed by Paul Morrissey, it is actually one of the funniest, and nastiest of all the films with Warhol's name on them.

All of the six photos have been neatly mounted on art board and matted in 11 x...

ANDY WARHOL'S BLUE MOVIE (1969)
ANDY WARHOL'S BLUE MOVIE (1969) $300.00

Set of fourteen (14) 9; x 12" (24 x 30 cm.) vintage original lobby cards (10 of the cards contain photographic imagery, 4 are text only in German), Germany. Viva, Louis Waldon; dir: Andy Warhol; Constantin. One of Warhol's superstar Viva's earliest feature films, and one of a small number where she was actually in a lead role, in this case playing herself.

"Producer/director/cinematographer Andy Warhol presents an afternoon in a Manhattan apartment where Viva and Louis discuss social issues while lying in bed. Louis makes sexual advances and Viva giggles; they indulge in sexual foreplay and then intercourse....

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

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.

CARY GRANT, RANDOLPH SCOTT (ca. 1935)
CARY GRANT, RANDOLPH SCOTT (ca. 1935) $325.00

Vintage original 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white photo, USA. Printed caption on verso reads: "HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?.... Cary Grant and Randolph Scott, Paramount screen players, are shown as Hollywood's popular bachelors. The question is, 'how long will it last?'"

Never was there a more clear example in Hollywood history of "hiding in plain sight" than during this interval, documented here, during which Grant and Scott shared a "bachelor bungalow" in Santa Monica, and all the studio publicity machine actually tried to focus on this.

Light wear and one very small tear at edges, VERY GOOD+.

CRYING GAME, THE (1992)
CRYING GAME, THE (1992) $300.00

Vintage original 30 x 40" (75 x 100 cm.) quad poster, UK. Stephen Rea, Forrest Whitaker, Jaye Davidson, dir: Neil Jordan; Polygram. Classic (and quite scarce) original British poster for this British film, about an Irish IRA member who, while in London, searches out a mysterious woman, falls in love with her, and eventually learns that he has become enraptured with a biological man. Folded, with minor light marginal creasing, NEAR FINE.

DUDE WRANGLER, THE (1930)
DUDE WRANGLER, THE (1930) $1,750.00

Vintage original 21 x 14" (54.6 x 35.5 6 cm.) window card poster, USA. Lina Basquette, George Duryea, dir: Richard Thorpe; Sono-Art. An obscure romantic comedy from the early talking film era, about an effeminate young man who prefers to spend his time working on embroidery, and whose girlfriend (who breeds polo ponies) schemes to make a man of him.

The film, which was released by a very small studio, received on this poster artwork which was obviously intended to be funny eight decades ago, but which, with its very extreme sexual stereotyping, can only be seen in a radically different...

JACK SMITH / 'I WAS A MEKAS COLLABORATOR' (1979)
JACK SMITH / 'I WAS A MEKAS COLLABORATOR' (1979) $2,500.00

Vintage original 13 x 13" (33 x 33 cm.) poster, USA, for a multimedia show created by the legendary Jack Smith (1932-1989), director of such underground films as Flaming Creatures, and belatedly recognized as one of the creators of performance art.

After Flaming Creatures was premiered, Smith and others (including Jonas Mekas, who was in so many ways the godfather of the then-new American underground film movement) were jailed for obscenity, and a lengthy -- and miserable -- legal process ensued. Mekas believed that Smith's flamboyant wildness would be disastrously received in a courtroom, and tried to find an alternative resolution....

MY HUSTLER (1965)
MY HUSTLER (1965) $450.00

Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) photo, USA. Paul America, Joseph Campbell, Ed Hood, dir: Andy Warhol and Chuck Wein; Andy Warhol Films.

Extremely rare original photo from, arguably, Warhol's first feature narrative film, which was shot on a totally improvised basis during a weekend on Fire Island. Campbell plays an older male hustler; in this shot, he is sitting next to Wein, a middle-aged guy who has called the "Dial A Hustler" phone service for a companion. FINE.

POISON (1991)
POISON (1991) $0.00

Vintage original 18 x 25" (47 x 66 cm.) poster, Netherlands. Scott Renderer, dir: Todd Haynes. Todd Haynes' Poison is a bold film in which three unrelated stories are intercut. One of them is a loose adaptation from Jean Genet's Our Lady of the Flowers. Poison was Haynes' feature film debut, and it was one of the groundbreaking films in the then emerging New Queer Cinema movement. The US poster for the film is OK, but does not, in my opinion, hold a candle to this stark piece, designed by Jean Paul Commandeur, with its closeup of Renderer, in the...
