The Leopard [Il Gattopardo]

Rome: Titanus, 1963. Vintage borderless reference photograph of director Luchino Visconti coaching actor Alain Delon through a salute on the set of the 1963 Italian film. With the stamp of G.B. Poletto on the verso.

Visconti's classic, spacious homage to the quiet death of the Sicilian aristocracy of the mid-nineteenth century, one of the great films of Italian midcentury cinema. Arguably the apex of Claudia Cardinale's career, and one of a handful of examples of Burt Lancaster's willingness to take on literate, complex roles. Winner of the Palme d'Or, and nominated for an Academy Award.

Shot on location in Rome, Lazio, and Sicily, Italy.

9.5 x 7 inches. Very Good plus, lightly edgeworn.
