Paris: Franco London Films, 1953. Vintage film still photograph of Charles Boyer as "General Andre de..." in the 1953 French-Italian film. In the film he wears a mustache, not so in this image, and likely this session occurred just before or after filming was complete.
Based on de Vilmorin's 1951 novel. Generally considered to be Max Ophuls' masterpiece, the third of four acclaimed films he made after his return to France in 1950, and a 1950s masterpiece. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Costume, Black-and-White (Rosine Delamare and Georges Annenkov).
11.5 x 14.75 inches, small white border, double weight, full-color, printed on Agfa photo paper. Very Good, with moderate rubbing and curling, a few short tears and creases.
