The Big Night [La notte brava]

Rome: Union Photos, 1959. Vintage borderless reference photograph from the 1959 Italian film, showing actress Elsa Martinelli. With the stamps of Union Photos and Atlantic Press on the verso.

Loosely based on Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1955 novel "Ragazzi di vita," following three amoral young men as they make their way through Rome's seedy criminal underworld. The third collaboration between director Mauro Bolognini and screenwriter Pasolini (who would of course go on to become a great and arguably better-known filmmaker in his own right), preceded by "Marisa" (1957) and "Giovani mariti" (1958) and followed by "Bell' Antonio" (1960) and "From a Roman Balcony" (1960).

Set and shot on location in Rome.

7.25 x 9.5 inches. Near Fine.
