A Kiss for a Killer [Une manche et la belle]

Nice: Studios de la Victorine, 1957. Seven original black-and-white photographs from the 1957 French film, here under the original French title, "Une manche et la belle." Henri Vidal and Isa Miranda are seen in most, and in two with Demongeot in the background. All with numerical annotations in holograph pencil, three with blue rubber-stamps (Victorine), and one with French film titles in holograph pencil on the versos. Housed in a French Kodak photo paper box.

Noirish murder drama loosely based on Chase's novel "The Sucker Punch" (1954). Betty Farnwell (Miranda) is a rich widow living in Nice with a bewitching daughter, Eva (Demongeot). Betty marries Philippe (Vidal), a good-looking but self-interested man. Cue Eva. Philippe falls for the calculating, femme fatale, who has plans to marry someone else. Betty's life is in danger as Philippe struggles with his transgressions.

Photographs 5 x 7 inches. Near Fine, with slight curling and light foxing, box Very Good overall.
