France: Cinedis, Circa 1960. Archive of 207 vintage borderless single weight still photographs and contact sheets from the 1960 French film. Numerical annotations on the verso of nearly all photos in holograph pencil, several cropped contact sheets mounted on larger sheets. Housed in a vintage French Kodak brand photo paper box, with most contact sheets in a two-ring binder (similar to keybook photos). Also included is a press folder from the Cinedis agency in Paris, with star biographies, film credits, and scenario, on Cinedis parchment.
Seen in the images is starring actor and screenwriter Buissieres, including a large portrait), actress Carrel (several seductive in nature), with shots of director Faurez and the film crew in action, and images of composer Georges Van Parys and singer Colette Renard (famous for her "Irma La Douce" musical roles), presumably working on the film soundtrack. Several images in the contact sheets show scenes from the film taking place in an automobile repair shop, directed scenes from high on a crane, and candid photos of the starring performers. A few of the contact sheets bear credits for the Laboratoire Tele-Photo, film title, client (Cinedis) and photographer. `
