Screaming Mimi

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1957. Collection of four vintage photographs from the 1958 film. Mimeo snipe and Columbia Pictures copyright stamp with credit for photographer Van Pelt on verso of all photographs.

One of the weirdest and most wonderful of the Columbia B-noirs, and a very faithful adaptation of Fredric Brown's byzantine 1949 novel, with Anita Ekberg (pre-"La Dolce Vita") put to good use as a dancing siren, and the Red Norvo Trio performing icy strains of modern jazz both live and on the soundtrack.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
