If All the Guys in the World... [Si tous les gars du monde...]

Paris: Les Films Ariane, 1956. Collection of 8 vintage black-and-white still photographs from the set of the 1956 French film, here under the original French title, "Si tous les gars du monde..." Featured are images of the caste and crew on the fishing boat seen in the film, including director Christian-Jaque and cast family members. All crediting photographer "le grand" on the recto, housed in an original French Kodak paper envelope, with annotations on the front of the envelope in holograph ink.

A poignant postwar imagining of collaborating countries, beliefs, and religions, about twelve fishermen out on the North Sea. Most of them eat spoiled ham and food poisoning incapacitates all but one, a Muslim who abstains from eating pork. The crew manages to send an S.O.S. using a radio, before all of them succumb.

Photographs 7 x 9.25 inches. Near Fine overall, slight curling. Envelope Near Fine.
