Two original photographs of David Bowie promoting his appearance in the 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth

N.p. N.p., 1975. Two promotional portrait photographs of David Bowie, likely used as part of a press release announcing Bowie's casting in the 1976 film "The Man Who Fell to Earth." Each with a fold over mimeo snipe from public relations firm Rogers and Cowan dated 5-29-75. One photograph with Bowie's name and RCA Records and Tapes printed in the bottom margin.

Just three weeks prior, RCA had released Bowie's ninth studio album, "Young Americans," and earlier that year the BBC had broadcast the documentary "Cracked Actor" about the singer, which led director Nicholas Roeg to cast Bowie in his upcoming adaptation of Walter Tevis' 1963 novel.

8 x 10 inches. One photograph with slight even fading, else Near Fine.

Criterion Collection 304.
