Paris: Jolly Film, 1967. Vintage borderless still photograph from the 1967 film.

Monsieur Hulot first came to the attention of the world during his beach vacation in "Monsieur Hulot's Holiday" (1953), then reappeared in a modern French neighborhood in "Mon Oncle" (1958). The third feature finds him in the city, whose complexities unfold, revolve, deconstruct, and reconstruct before his eyes.

A masterpiece of French cinema. Using his own money, director Tati meticulously constructed a second "Paris" outside of Paris for the third—and most magnificent—of the four Hulot films.

7 x 5 inches. Near Fine.
