BLOW-UP (1966) $250.00 SOLD

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...

BLOW-UP (1966)
BLOW-UP (1966) $350.00 SOLD

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.

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.
