Truman Capote (novel)
Robert Blake, Scott Wilson, John Forsythe, Paul Stewart (starring)

N.p. N.p., Circa 1967. Collection of five vintage borderless black and white photographs from the set of the 1967 film. With two printed mimeo snipes on the verso, along with the stamp of still photographer James Johnson. 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.

Brooks' unflinching and unsentimental documentary style made for a visualization that matched the power of Truman Capote's most famous book, and remains one of the great meditations on violence in America. Nominated for four Academy Awards.

10 x 8 inches. Most Very Good plus, with light creasing and edgewear, one Very Good, with a tear to the top right corner, repaired with cello tape on the verso.
