Easy Rider

N.p. Alfieri, 1969. Vintage oversize double weight color photograph of Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson, at an outdoor press conference held in front of the Carlton Hotel at the Cannes Film Festival, where Hopper was awarded the Cannes First Film Prize. Shot by Marc Alfieri, and signed by him in black ink at the lower left margin: "Photo Alfieri / Cannes / FIF 69." Also with Alfier's stamp on the verso, and a holograph ink notation: "Festival.69. / 4903."

About as close to the very start of the New Hollywood era as can be imagined. "Easy Rider" had its world premiere at Cannes, on May 8, 1969. It would not debut in the US until July 1969, in a significantly edited form.

9.25 x 12.25 inches. In a museum quality frame. Fine.
