Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1970. Vintage double weight photograph of director Michelangelo Antonioni and members of the cast and crew on location in the Mojave Desert shooting the 1970 film. Shot by noted photographer Bruce Davidson. With holograph annotations in pencil and blue pen on the verso.
Antonioni’s great American experiment, and the only film the director ever made in the United States, written for the screen by a young Sam Shepard. Though made from an Italian’s perspective, the film stands today as a great visual statement on the American West in the late 1960s, rampant consumerism, and the hippie zeitgeist.
8 x 10 inches (20.5 x 25.5 cm). Near Fine.
