Zero for Conduct [Zero de conduite]

Paris: Franfilmdis / Argui-Film, 1933. Collection of three vintage oversize double weight studio still photographs for the landmark 1933 silent film by Jean Vigo. Each with the stamp of French weekly "Tele Magazine" on verso, two with holograph annotations regarding layout.

Although he only made four films before his death from tuberculosis at the age 29, Jean Vigo would come to have an outsized influence on cinema, particularly the French New Wave, with Truffaut in particular paying homage to the anarchic boarding school students in "Zero for Conduct" during the classroom and recess scenes in "The 400 Blows."

11.75 x 9.75 inches with wide bottom margins. Very Good plus.

Criterion Collection 578. Godard, Histoire(s) du cinema. Rosenbaum 1000.
