Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1970. Vintage studio still photograph, of Daria Halprin, seemingly trapped in the middle of a mid-century modern glass vestibule, from the 1970 film. Mimeo snipe on the verso.

Antonioni’s great American experiment, and the only film the director ever made in the United States, written for the screen by a young Sam Shepard. Though made from an Italian’s perspective, the film stands today as a great visual statement on the American West in the late 1960s, rampant consumerism, and the hippie zeitgeist.

8 x 10 inches, with wide horizontal margins. Near Fine.
