About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1965. Four vintage borderless photographs from the 1965 film. Two studio still photographs of Ursula Andress on (production designer) Piero Poletto's striking minimalist set, and two compilation fashion photographs of Andress in costume, bookending (Costume Designer) Giulio Coltellacci's concept drawings. Two photographs with "La Decima Victima" stamp on verso.

An international cult classic based on the 1953 short story "Seventh Victim" by Robert Sheckley. Sheckley wrote the novelization of the film in 1956, and two sequels "Victim Prime" and "Victim" in 1987 and 1988, respectively.

The worldwide, officially sanctioned "Big Hunt" is the world's most popular television show, giving those inclined to violence, and those in search of celebrity, a chance to act as "hunter" and "victim." The games top two assassins, Caroline Meredith (Andress) and Macello Poletti (Marcello Mastrianni), who may be in love, are pitted against each another.

A descendant of Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game" (1924) and the first of the televised death game films such as "The Gladiators" (1969), "Death Race 2000" (1975), "The Running Man" (1987), and "The Hunger Games" (2012).

Shot on location in New York, Rome, Geneva, and Vatican City.

2 - 9.5 x 7.25 inches, 2- 8 x 10 inches. Light edgewear, else Near Fine.
