Wasteland [Terrain vague]

N.p. N.p., Circa 1960. Collection of 30 vintage press photographs and contact sheets from promotional events for the 1960 French-Italian film, here under the original French title, "Terrain vague." All photographs housed in a large brown folder with the French title in holograph ink on the flap.

Based on Hal Ellson's groundbreaking 1950 cult novel "Tomboy." Dan (Gaubert) is a tough gang leader who dresses and fights like a man. She and two others, including Babar (Bras) are ostracized due to their behavior, and she falls in love with Lucky (Cafarelli) while Babar commits suicide. A late entry for film noir regular and poetic realist Carné, whose notable credits include "Port of Shadows" (1938), "The Devil's Envoys" (1942), and "Children of Paradise" (1945).

Set in Paris.

Photos range in size from 4.75 x 6.75 inches to 9 x 11.25 inches. Very Good plus overall, foxing to versos, light curling and rubbing.
