The Grand Maneuver [Les grandes manoeuvres] (Collection of 107 original keybook photographs for the 1955 film)

By Clair, Rene (director, screenwriter); Serge Beauvarlet (still photographer); Michele Morgan, Gerarde Philipe, Jean Desailly, Brigitte Bardot (starring)

Paris: Cinedis, 1955. Collection of 107 original black-and-white keybook still photographs from the 1955 French film. Small snapshot photos pasted on thick stock in a quarto "Lavis aquarelle" brand spiral bound notebook with maroon faux leather front wrapper and a paper title label affixed to the front wrapper. Each photo is numbered in holograph ink inside a small white border on the recto, and in mimeograph on the verso. Director Rene's first color film, based largely on his childhood experiences. Winner of two important French film awards, the Prix Louis-Delluc and the Prix Melies. Screened out-of-competition at the 1974 Cannes Film Festival. Still photographer Beauvarlet remains uncredited for the film, perhaps overshadowed by the film's prolific cinematographer, Robert Lefebvre. Still photographer Beauvarlet stuck close to Bardot throughout her career, snapping stills in "Her Bridal Night" (1956), "Naughty Girl" (1956), "La Parisienne" (1957), and "The Night Heaven Fell" (1958). His quick-draw style is amply captured here, in candid images of the cast and crew, including a jovial celebrity signing, and softer, posed studio portraits. Armand (Philipe) is a lieutenant in the French cavalry just before WWI, a notorious womanizer and gambler who bets that he can seduce a woman in time for his company to being its summer maneuvers. The woman is Marie-Louise (Morgan), a divorcee who runs a milliner's shop, and who is also being courted by Victor (Desailly). A subplot involving Armand's friend Felix (Yves Robert) and Lucie (Bardot), a photographer's daughter. Photos 3.5 x 4.5 inches (8.75 x 11.25 cm). Very Good overall, several with bruises from offsetting paste.

By Wyler, William (director); john Fowles (novel); John Kohn, Stanley Mann (screenwriter); Terence Stamp, Samantha Eggar, Mona Washbourne, Maurice Dallimore (starring)

Based on the 1963 novel by John Fowles. Hal Erickson at AllMovie notes: "Fowles' original story was written in the form of a dual diary, one kept by a kidnapper, the other by his victim. The film is told almost exclusively from the point of view of the former, a reclusive British bank clerk named Freddy Clegg (Terence Stamp). A neurotic recluse whose only pleasure is butterfly collecting, Clegg wins $200,000 in the British Football Pool. He purchases a huge country estate, fixes up its cellar with all the comforts of home, then kidnaps Miranda (Samantha Eggar), an art student whom he has worshipped from afar. The demented Clegg doesn't want ransom, nor does he want to rape the girl--he simply wants to 'collect' her." Nominated for three Academy Awards, and winner of Best Actor and Best Actress awards at The Cannes Film Festival. 10 x 8 inches (25.5 x 20.5 cm). Near Fine. Grant US.
