Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carriere on the set of "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie"

Paris: Greenwich Film Productions, 1971. Original double weight, wide margin photograph of Luis Bunuel and screenwriter Jean-Claude Carriere by Mary Ellen Mark, taken outdoors during the shooting of Bunuel's "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie." Notated on the verso as having been taken in 1971, with a separate rubber stamp showing a date of 1980, presumably when the photograph was struck.

Carriere was Bunuel's most significant screenwriting collaborator, authoring or co-authoring many of Bunuel's greatest films, including "Diary of a Chambermaid" (1964), "Belle de Jour" (1967), "The Milky Way" (1969), "The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie" (1972), "The Phantom of Liberty" (1974), and "That Obscure Object of Desire" (1977).

Print 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm), image 5 x 7 inches (wide margin). Fine. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass.
