The Dance of Death

N.p. N.p., Circa 1969. Vintage borderless double weight satin-finish black and white photograph from the 1969 film, one showing actors Robert Stephens, Geraldine McEwan, and Laurence Olivier, the other showing Olivier alone. With a photographer's stamp on the verso (noted only as "Dominic"), along with a library stamp. 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 filmed version of the National Theatre Company play originally directed by Glen Byam Shaw, which was based in turn on the 1900 play by August Strindberg. In their isolated home on the coast of Sweden, an aging, mentally ill ex-military captain engages in vicious battles of will with his wife, a former actress whose marriage ended her career.

Set in Sweden.
