The Honey Pot

Los Angeles: Famous Artists Productions, 1967. Vintage borderless black-and-white double weight press photograph from the set of the 1967 film comedy. With the stamp of photographer Pierluigi Praturlon on the verso.

Born in Rome, Praturlon (better known simply as Pierluigi) embarked upon a career in photography in 1947. The young paparazzo got his first big story by snapping candid shots of Greta Garbo, who was passing through Rome incognito. Armed with his newfound celebrity, he became an habitue on Cinecitta film sets, and many movie icons, including Frank Sinatra and Sofia Loren, made him their regular photographer. Pierluigi’s name is often associated with Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita,” as he covered that shoot extensively.

Inspired by his favorite play, Ben Jonson's "Volpone," millionaire Cecil Fox (Harrison) devises an intricate plan to trick three former mistresses into believing he is dying. Based on Frederick Knott's play "Mr. Fox of Venice" and Thomas Sterling's novel "The Evil of the Day."

Set in Venice and shot on location both there and in Rome.

8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine.
