BLOW-UP (1966)
BLOW-UP (1966) $250.00 SOLD

Vintage original 27 x 18" (67 x 46 cm.) fotobusta poster, Italy. Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, David Hemmings, John Castle, Jane Birkin, Verushka, dir: Michelangelo Antonioni; MGM. The story of a mod London photographer who believes he has photographed a murder.

Forever controversial and even hated by many when first released, it is Antonioni's comment on society (particularly of the time) and on human nature. The film was made by MGM in the UK under a newly-created company called Premier Productions. Because this company had no agreement with the Production Code office (as MGM did), the frontal nudity and explicit scenes...

Set of eight (8) vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) color photos, UK. David Hemmings, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarah Miles, dir: Michelangelo Antonioni; MGM. Scarce complete set of British color stills for this British film (it was technically registered as a British-Italian-US co-production, but, one which was both set and shot in London).

The quintessential film that expresses the swinging London of the 1960s, with a great set of images which nicely epitomize this mystery film about the nature of truth. JUST ABOUT FINE.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961) $1,500.00 SOLD

Vintage original 22 x 14" (55 x 35 cm.) window card poster, USA. Audrey Hepburn, George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, dir: Blake Edwards; Paramount.

From Truman Capote's popular novelette came this all-time classic film, gifting the world with an iconic performance by Audrey Hepburn. Originally envisioned for Marilyn Monroe, Hepburn felt herself miscast, but she added so much class to the character of call girl Holly Golightly that she made it her very own. To this day, women imitate her iconic look in the little black dress.

Here, Hepburn displays her beloved look and character accompanied by Cat, the companion she...

BREATHLESS (1960; 1961 first US-release)
BREATHLESS (1960; 1961 first US-release) $300.00 SOLD

Vintage original 17 x 11" (43 x 28 cm.) pressbook, USA. Jean Seberg, Jean-Paul Belmondo, dir: Jean-Luc Godard; Films Around the World.

This is a fascinating document, which records the initial reception of this classic of the French New Wave, as it arrived in the US at the beginning of the Kennedy era. The pressbook has an unusual format, whereby each of its opening pages is wider than the one which precedes it, so that they overlap on the front cover.

Folio, folded (as issued), 14 pp. Some scattered creasing, VERY GOOD+.

BREATHLESS [À BOUT DE SOUFFLE] (1960)
BREATHLESS [À BOUT DE SOUFFLE] (1960) $500.00 SOLD

Vintage original 11 x 9" (31 x 24 cm.) pressbook, France. Jean Seberg, Jean-Paul Belmondo, dir: Jean-Luc Godard; SNC. The film that, more than any other, launched the French New Wave and the career of its director and its two stars. Belmondo won international acclaim in the role of a two-bit gangster, and Seberg was unforgettable as an utterly immoral young American woman in Paris.

Pictorial wrappers, 4to, 4 pp., with a 2 pp. supplement laid-in, a few scattered small pinholes and one marginal tear, VERY GOOD-FINE.

CUL-DE-SAC (1966)
CUL-DE-SAC (1966) $350.00 SOLD

London: Compton Films, 1966. Vintage original French pressbook, 9 x 12" (23 x 30 cm.) for the 1966 film. Roman Polanski's third film, and second film in English, from a screenplay by Polanski and his frequent collaborator, Gerard Brach. Compared since its release to Harold Pinter and Samuel Beckett in terms of tone and theme, Cul-de-sac is a psychological thriller of the first order, exploring themes of horror, frustrated sexuality, and alienation -- concepts the director has mined and evolved for decades with great invention.

A striking illustrated design appropriated from the original poster artwork, with stark photographic images from the...

Vintage original 30 x 40" (76 x 102 cm.) quad poster, UK. Donald Pleasance, Lionel Stander,Francoise Dorleac, dir: Roman Polanski; Compton Films. Polanski's third feature, a masterpiece of surreal black comedy -- a murderous gangster invades the island home of an already-dysfunctional married couple, with hilarious and horrifying results.

This original British poster for this classic British film is a famous surreal design by Polanski's contemporary, Polish film maker and graphic designer Jan Lenica. Reissues as well as later bootleg reprints of this poster have turned up, but they do not utilize the full color scheme of this famous '60s design.

One of the most famous groundbreaking films of all time, and one of the films which broke down the walls of the legion of decency Production Code, which had influenced the way films had been made for more than 30 years. It was the theme and the suggestion which had the office up in arms. Though there was no nudity, the film broke many taboos and made way for the...
