The Quiet American

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1958. Set of eight vintage black and white still photographs from the 1958 film.

Based on the 1955 novel by Graham Greene, about a young American economist who begins a relationship with an older British diplomat in 1952 Vietnam. One of the first American films to discuss geopolitics in mainland southeast Asia, although later disavowed by Greene as a "propaganda film for America," with many of the novel's original antiwar messages removed.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine, with "The Quiet American" noted in neat holograph pencil on the verso of each photograph.
