Le jour se leve [Daybreak]

Paris: Productions Sigma, 1939. Vintage double weight photograph from the 1939 film. Shot and struck by the film's still photographer Raymond Voinquel, with his name in tiny print at the bottom left corner of the image, and the film title at the bottom right.

A striking image, shot from the top of a tall tenement stairwell looking straight down, as all the tenants looking up. A significant image as well, as it is pulled from a location that is at the heart of the story, where Jean Gabin—pursued by the police—has barricaded himself in a room at the top of the building after shooting and killing a fellow foundry working in an argument.

8.5 x 11. 25 inches. In a museum quality frame. Four small discolorations at the corners of the verso from an old non-archival mounting, else about Fine.
