Marco Polo

Paris: Dalmas, Circa 1962. Collection of five vintage oversize borderless reference photographs from the 1962 unfinished French film, two showing actors Dorothy Dandridge, Alain Delon, and Yona Levy, one showing Dandridge and Levy, one showing Dandridge and Delon, and one showing producer Raoul Levy and actor Gregoire Aslan. With a printed mimeo snipe on the verso, along with the stamps of Westport Public Library and Dalmas agency. From the archive of the PIX Agency, a photo house that acted as an intermediary between emigre photographers (as well as those still living in Europe) and the American magazine and newspaper market between 1935-1969.

A dramatization of famed Italian explorer Marco Polo's visit to East India, left incomplete due to producer Raoul Levy running out of money early on in production.

Shot on location in Belgrade, Yugoslavia and Venice, Italy.

Two 10.75 x 8.25 inches, one 8.25 x 9 inches, one 8.25 x 11.75 inches, and one 9.5 x 7 inches. Very Good plus overall, two with faint toning on the recto.
