Mickey One

Culver City, CA: Florin / Columbia Pictures, 1965. Collection of three vintage black-and-white studio still photographs from the 1965 film. Featuring images of Warren Beatty and Alexandra Stewart.

Some say that the New Hollywood era began with "Bonnie and Clyde" in 1967, others say "Mickey One" in 1965. Either way you look at it, the director was Arthur Penn. Beatty was not only the muse for Penn's avant-garde tale of a comic who runs afoul of the mob, but also the crazed youngster who would get Penn assigned to Bonnie and Clyde and initiate the second golden age of cinema. Stan Getz laid improvisations onto the progressive and somewhat classical score for the film, against the backdrop of a full orchestra.

Set in Chicago, and shot on location there.

8 x 10 inches. CONDITION.
