Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1957. Collection of four vintage color studio still photographs from the 1957 film.
The story of a motley assortment of expatriates, who travel to Pamplona to attend the running of the bulls, it reflected Hemingway's own abiding fascination with bullfighting. Featuring a standout performance by Errol Flynn as the hedonistic, hard-drinking, burned-out Mike Campbell...in other words, himself. Though considered one of the most honest "big" film adaptations of its era, due mainly to the screenplay by novelist and Hemingway acolyte Peter Viertel, the author is said to have walked out only 25 minutes into the premier. Zanuck's first independent production after his departure from Fox. The snipe on this photograph's verso suggests that Zanuck also had a hand in directing certain Parisian scenes, as is depicted here.
Shot on location in France, Mexico, and Spain.
8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
