The Devil and the Ten Commandments [Le diable et les 10 commandements]

Paris: Filmsonor / Mondex / Procinex, 1962. Original French program for the 1962 French-Italian film, here under the original French title, "Le diable et les 10 commandements." Illustrated wrappers featuring esoteric cartoons by Vaissier, with original glassine. Contents of the program include film credits, synopsis, actor biographies, and advertisement campaigns; often these programs are illustrated throughout with still photographs from the film, this production seems to have invested the visual element entirely in the wrapper art.

An epic comedy on the Book of Exodu's most epic tale, with elements based on David Alexander's novel, "Murder Points a Finger" (1953). Over a series of 8 episodes, various commandments are portrayed by prominent European actors, including Alain Delon, Mel Ferrer, Louis de Funés, Danielle Darrieux, Charles Azvanour, Fernandel, and Dany Saval.

9.25 x 11.75 inches, 18 leaves. Very Good plus, with light dampstaining and foxing, most reserved to the wrapper and glassine.
