Pascale Petit and Giani Esposito for "Towards Ecstasy"

Paris: N.p., 1960. Two original borderless single weight press photographs of starring actors Giani Espositio and Pascale Petit at a showing, presumably the premiere, of the 1960 French film. Their names in holograph pencil on the versos. Costar Nelly Borgeaud is also seen in one photo.

Based on Alleins' novel "L'étrangère dans les portes" (1954). Catherine (Petit) marries a wealthy landowner (Esposito) in Africa, where she also meets a mystic who influences her spiritual beliefs, as does a Catholic priest. Petit and Esposito were eventually married, and collaborated on "Cross of the Living" (1962).

7 x 9.25 inches, one slightly longer. Very Good plus, faint indentations to one, the other with two horizontal creases.
