France: Limot, Circa 1961. Collection of 86 original black-and-white single weight photographs from the set of 1961 film. Members of the cast and crew are seen in action shots, pinup images of actress Castel, Bourvil mending fences, and several snapshots of the camera crew during filming. Sprawling landscapes, gunfights in the town square, and charming taproom images candidly showcase one of Clair's final films. Nearly all are rubber-stamped on the verso, crediting photographer Limot, and all with numerical annotations in holograph pencil. Housed in an original French Kodak photo paper box.
