Petulia

N.p. N.p., 1968. Collection of eleven vintage borderless studio still photographs from the 1968 film. All with "Petulia" stamps on verso, five with Spanish "Aprobado" stamps on verso, three with faint illegible oval Spanish stamp and single annotation in holograph ink on recto.

Based on the 1966 novel "Me and the Arch Kook Petuia" by John Haase.

A masterpiece of screenwriting, cinematography, editing, and direction, shot on location during the Summer of Love in San Francisco, with appearances by Janis Joplin and The Grateful Dead that are not so much cameos as they are part of movie's atmosphere.

Newlywed San Francisco socialite Petulia Danner (Julie Christie) is determined to have an affair with physician Dr. Archie Bollen (George C. Scott). Petulia's pursuit of Archie is relentless, even as he dates another woman, and culminates in a curious twist. The film makes use of various time jumps, but even with an uneven plot still remains an overlooked gem of 1960s New Hollywood.

Listed to compete at Cannes but the festival was closed due to events of May 1968 in France.

Set in San Francisco, and shot there on location during the Summer of Love.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, three with stamp and a single annotation in holograph ink on recto, one with light rubbing to center image.

Complete collation details available on request.
