About This Item

France / Italy: Filmsonor, 1958. Archive of 219 vintage borderless single weight still photographs from the 1958 French-Italian film, here under the French title "La loi c'est la loi." Notations on the verso of nearly all photos in holograph pencil, and as many rubber-stamped on the verso crediting photographers Hughes Ronald and Paul Ronald, and The Dial Press agency in Rome. Housed in three vintage French Kodak and Ilford brand photo paper boxes, and in a vintage manila envelope with French film title in holograph ink on the recto. Included in the archive are four pages of film credits and synopsis, on Cinedis (Paris) company parchment.

Seen in the images is starring actor Fernandel as he tutors a class at of children at religion school, Toto, Genin, actress Nathalie Nerval, and other members of the cast in action, including several scenes from an off-camera cocktail party, and images of the cast and crew during filming.

In an imaginary village on the border between Italy and France, a French customs agent (Fernandel) watches every move of an Italian smuggler (Toto), who eventually discovers that the agent is in fact Italian, not French.

Shot on location in Italy. Entered into the 8th Berlin International Film Festival in 1958.

Nearly all photographs approximately 7 x 9.25 inches, a handful slightly larger. Very Good plus overall, photos with moderate curling. Film credits and synopses Near Fine, box and envelope Very Good plus.
