Paris: Pathe, 1945. Two vintage oversize double weight borderless studio still photographs from the 1945 French film, one showing actress Arletty in costume as the courtesan Garance, reclining on a couch, the other showing the interior of the Grand Theatre where actor Pierre Brasseur is performing.

An influential classic of French cinema, following a courtesan in nineteenth century Paris who finds her attentions torn between four possible suitors—a mime, an actor, a thief, and an aristocrat.

Set and shot on location in France.

11 x 9 inches. Very Good plus, one with pinholes and brief wear to the corners, and one with a small closed tear to the top left corner.

Criterion Collection 141. Ebert II. Rosenbaum 1000.
