Modesty Blaise

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1965. Vintage borderless press photograph of Monica Vitti from the 1966 film. With holograph annotations and agency stamps on the verso.

Based on an original comic strip by Peter O'Donnell and Jim Holdaway. O'Donnell wrote an original screenplay for the film, although much of it was never used, and he novelized the film the same year it was released. One of the key "mod London" films of the 1960s, directed in blazing saturated color by Joseph Losey (the closest he would come to popular entertainment), starring Monica Vitti in the sexy title role (her first English-speaking role), joined by Dirk Bogarde and Terence Stamp.

Shot on location in Italy, Netherlands, and England.

7 x 9.5 inches. Near Fine.
