Los Angeles: Twentieth Century Library, 1971. Vintage photograph of director Jerry Schatzberg and cinematographer Adam Holender on the set of the 1971 film. A note affixed on the top edge with scotch tape with manuscript annotations on the verso.

An important film of the New Hollywood movement, and one of the best and least moralistic ones made on the subject of drug abuse, in this case heroin. Groundbreaking as a major motion picture in that it used no music, was shot in a "cinema verite" style, and was the first popular film to show actual drug injection. Nominated for the Palme d'Or.

Shot on location in New York City.

10 x 8 inches. Wide bottom margin. Near Fine.

Grant US. Twilight Time 221.
