Take the Money and Run

Burbank, CA: American Broadcasting Company [ABC], 1969. Collection of 217 individually numbered contact sheets, amounting to 2650 images, from the 1969 film. Housed in two original three-ring binders from the film's publicity department. The occasional frame is circled or crossed through in red marker. A robust collection that documents nearly every facet of the film's production, including numerous candid images of the cast and crew at work.

Woody Allen's first film as a director, one of the great American comedies, the film that set the template for Allen's 1970s work. A massive archive documenting the birth of an utterly new and unique voice in cinema, one that would become something even bigger in 1979.

Set and shot in San Francisco and inside the walls of San Quentin State Prison.

Sheets 8 x 10 inches, most in three-hole mylar sleeves, some with holes punched directly in left margin, others laid in. Very Good overall, few frames excised, general modest edgewear. Binders with signs of use as expected, one spine label missing, other partially lacking, but with titles intact.
