Alex in Wonderland

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1970. Archive of five vintage, oversize, double weight photographs from the 1970 film, four of which are borderless. One photograph SIGNED and dated 1969 by photographer Alan Pappe on the verso, all photographs with his stamp.

All five photographs feature legendary Italian director Federico Fellini in his cameo role as himself, with one showing the director on the set with a clapboard and crew members in front of him, while a second features a holograph pencil annotation describing Fellini and actor Donald Sutherland discussing a scene with an out-of-frame director Paul Mazursky.

Pappe worked as a film still and press photographer for 30 years, photographing a who's who of film and music stars, including iconic images of Sharon Tate, Jimi Hendrix, and Liza Minnelli, as well as album cover for the "Grease" soundtrack album, and the interior images of Jefferson Airplane's "After Bathing at Baxter's." His 1972 "Time" magazine cover photograph of Minnelli in "Cabaret" is part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.

A young filmmaker struggles to come up with ideas for new film after his previous commercial and critical success, while ruminating on his past, present, and possible futures.

One photograph 11 x 11 inches, four photographs roughly 14 x 11 or 11 x 14 inches. Near Fine.
