Cartouche (Collection of four original photographs of Pierre Repp on the set of the 1962 film, and two candid shots circa 1950s).

Pierre Repp (subject)

Paris: N.p., Circa 1962. Collection of six photographs, including four vintage black-and-white still photographs and two double weight photographs, showing French actor and comedian Pierre Repp. Four images show Repp on the set of Philippe de Broca's "Cartouche" (1962), as Le marquis de Griffe. The two double weight promotional images were produced by Philips presumably during the mid 1950s, when Repp had released some comedy albums with the music company.

Repp (1909-1986) was a French film actor and comedian, noted for his stuttering speech, and particularly popular in Parisian music halls and cabaret. Notable film credits include "Hello Smile!" (1956), Truffaut's "The 400 Blows" (1959), Giono's "Croesus" (1960), and Demy's "Donkey Skin" (1970).

Promotional photos 6.5 x 9 inches; two photos 7 x 9.25 inches; two photos 5 x 7 inches. About Near Fine.
