The King of Marvin Gardens

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1972. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1972 film.

Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern costar in this understated film about estranged brothers, the more grounded of which is surprisingly played by Nicholson. It is a unique chance to see Nicholson play the straightman, reeling in his erratic irresponsible brother, all set to the backdrop of Atlantic City's waning "classic era." Many of the iconic hotels featured were demolished in the proceeding years to facilitate hotel-casinos.

Shot on location in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

8 x 10 inches. Holograph ink notation to the verso, else Near Fine.
