Contempt [Le Mepris]

Paris: Les Films Concordia, 1963. Original French program for the 1963 film. Based on the novel "Il Disprezzo" by Alberto Moravia. With a tiny rubber stamp contemporary to issue reading, "Interdit au moins de 18 ans" ("No under 18 admitted").

Godard's lush Technicolor landmark that transformed Brigitte Bardot from a sex symbol into an art object, while simultaneously making him the most commercially successful deconstructionist in film history. A fascinating film-within-a-film that can be watched either as narrative about a disintegrating relationship or as an unending series of pure cinematic references.

Saddle-stapled stiff linen wrappers, 8 pages (2 being brightly-colored stills from the film), 9.5 x 12 inches. Near Fine.

Criterion Collection 171.
