N.p. N.p., 1975. Archive of 15 single weight and 20 double weight vintage press photographs of Maria Schneider at the 1975 Cannes Film Festival, there to promote Michelango Antonioni's Palme d'Or nominated "The Passenger," in which she starred opposite Jack Nicholson. Eight photographs with stamps of photographers Leo Mirkine, Prisco de Majo, and Daniel Angeli (four, two, and two photographs respectively) on the verso.
The archive shows three distinct events during the festival, as well as other candid and posed images of Schneider. These include the premiere of the film, a press conference, and a party on a boat. Numerous photographs also feature Antonioni and co-star Jenny Runacre. Sadly, Nicholson is nowhere to be found, we assume because he was too busy hanging out with Ken Russell and The Who, as "Tommy" was screening out of competition.
Other photographs show Schneider with Bernardo Bertolucci, who had directed her to instant stardom three years earlier in "Last Tango in Paris," as well as a single photograph of Schneider with Dustin Hoffman, starring in the also Palme d'Or nominated "Lenny," directed by Bob Fosse.
Also included in the archive are four large negatives of photographs from the archive, a strip of five negatives of a beach, and two strips of color negatives, containing four and five images respectively, as well as three large negative of what appears to be a photoshoot of Schneider at the beach. These images are distinct from the photographs in the archive, and we can find no corresponding images online.
Photograph sizes vary between 9.5 x 7.25 and 8 x 12 inches, with most being 10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
