N.p. N.p., Circa 1963. Vintage reference photograph from the 1963 film noir. A wonderful fourth wall version of the film's most classic shot, only this one including cinematographer Douglas Slocombe, director Joseph Losey, actor James Fox (not in the original scene), and a crew member adjusting the chandelier, all in the reverse mirror image.

From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.

The first of director Joseph Losey's three legendary collaborations with screenwriter-playwright Harold Pinter, a dark, squeamish parable that tells a familiar servant-becomes-master tale, but surpasses mediocrity through a journey into the psyche of the servant himself. Stunningly photographed by Douglas Slocombe. A classic of 1960s British cinema.

Set and shot on location in London.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with light wear to the corners.
