About This Item

Paris: Intermondia Films / Pretoria / Cinedis, 1959. Collection of 11 original black-and-white single weight still photographs from the 1959 French-Italian film. Featuring Jean Gabin dancing gaily in a pub with costar Doll, and a photo of costar Cowl smoking a cigarette, with a single photo credited to photographer Dole on the recto, mimeograph number on the verso, showing a tramp rolling his own cigarette. Nearly all with brief numerical annotations in holograph pencil on the verso. Gabin plays a sophisticated tramp who lives during summer in an abandoned construction site. As winter draws near, he devises a plan that will surely have him incarcerated, and thus in warmer climates. To do so he chooses a bar to demolish, but the crime only lands him a week in jail. Freedom proves too chilling, and he vows to return. Grangier worked with Gabin on several films, notably "The Night Affair" (1958), "The Counterfeiters of Paris" (1961), "Speaking of Murder" (1957), and "Maigret Sees Red" (1963), as did photographer Dole, who was consistent if anything, a regular fixture in films by Denys de La Patelliere, Jean Delannoy. Photos range from 6.75 x 9 inches to 9.25 x 11.75 inches, most being larger. Very Good plus overall, with light curling, most are discolored, with a few tiny scant chips and tears. Complete collation details available on request.
