Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1966. Two vintage reference photographs from the 1966 film, one borderless, showing director Mike Nichols and a camera crew filming a scene between actors Sandy Dennis and Richard Burton, the other bordered, showing Burton in conversation with Nichols.

Based on the 1963 Tony Award-winning play by Edward Albee, which follows one bitter night of domestic unrest between an emotionally scarred college professor and his hard-drinking wife. Nichols' directorial debut, and the first film to be given the MPAA tag "No one under 18 will be admitted unless accompanied by an adult," challenging the Production Code Office and essentially leading to its demise. Nominated for 13 Academy Awards, and winning five, including Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress for Elizabeth Taylor and Sandy Dennis, respectively.

Set on the campus of a small New England college, and shot on location in Northampton, Southampton, and Cambridge, Massachusetts.

One photograph 9.5 x 7.5 inches, one photograph 10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
