Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1952. Collection of 86 vintage photographs from the 1953 film, made specially for director Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Photographs are mounted recto and verso (i.e., 2 per leaf) on heavy stock and housed in a leather bound three ring presentation binder with gilt titles and Mankiewicz's name on the front board. Shot between August and October of 1952 for a "making of the film" article published in the February 2, 1953 issue of "LIFE" magazine (noted on the lower margin of the first photograph). Altogether, an inside account of the making of the film, with candid images of the cast and crew on the set.
Featuring a booming, articulate Marlon Brando, in a notable departure from previous films. At first thought to be too incoherent due to his mumbling slurred speech in "A Streetcar Named Desire," Brando proved himself quite the versatile actor in his role as Mark Antony.
Photos 8 x 10 inches. Leaves with occasional wear at the punch holes, overall Near Fine in a Very Good plus binder.
