Easy Rider

Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1969. Vintage oversize borderless reference photograph from the 1969 film, showing Peter Fonda chatting up Sabrina Scharf, with Dennis Hopper making his own connection in the background. With the stamp of Tele-Cine on the verso.

"Bonnie and Clyde" may have given the New Hollywood era its legs, but "Easy Rider" gave it the gas. Dennis Hopper's directorial debut had its world premiere at Cannes, on May 8, 1969, but would not debut in the US until July 1969, in a significantly edited form.

Nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor for Jack Nicholson.

Set and shot on location throughout California, New Mexico, Arizona, Louisiana, and Utah.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus with a few light creases throughout.

National Film Registry. Ebert III. Criterion Collection 545.
