Alice or the Last Escapade [Alice ou la derniere fugue]

Claude Chabrol (director, screenwriter)
Robert Cohen (photographer)
Sylvia Kristel, Charles Vanel, Jean Carmet (starring)

France: Filmel, 1978, 1986. Two photographs for airings of the 1977 film on French public television channel France 3.

The first photograph, for a September 6, 1978 airing, is borderless and shows director Chabrol and star Kristel in between takes, with the stamp of photographer Robert Cohen and a mimeo snipe on the verso.

The second photograph, for an October 2, 1986 airing, is of a topless Sylvia Kristel, with a mimeo snipe on the verso.

Chabrol riffs on both "Alice in Wonderland" and the popular 1970s horror mini-genre where a beautiful young woman becomes trapped through supernatural means in a house after seeking shelter there. In this case it's "Emmanuelle" star Sylvia Kristel, whose car breaks down in the middle of the night after she walks out on her husband, and Chabrol is more interested in her journey toward emancipation than actual horror.

Both photographs 7 x 5 inches. Fine.
