The Postman Always Rings Twice

London: Granada Television, 1980. Two borderless photographs from the 1981 film. One photo with a snipe attached to the verso.

Directed by Bob Rafelson, and based on the 1939 novel by James M. Cain, "Postman" was one of the gems of late 1970s cinema (along with "The Verdict"), and brought David Mamet to the attention of the filmmaking world, leading to his working not only as a screenwriter but an important director. Mamet's grim update of Cain's classic hard-boiled novel was somewhat panned on release, but is today held in high regard, and is considered a major influence on the genre.

Photographs 8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.

Silver Classic Noir. Spicer US.
