The Leopard [Il Gattopardo]

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1963. Vintage borderless studio still photograph of director Luchino Visconti in conversation with actor Burt Lancaster on the set of the 1963 Italian film. With a Twentieth Century-Fox stamp on the verso.

From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.

Visconti's classic, spacious homage to the quiet death of the Sicilian aristocracy of the mid-nineteenth century, one of the great films of Italian midcentury cinema. Arguably the apex of Claudia Cardinale's career, and one of a handful of examples of Burt Lancaster's willingness to take on literate, complex roles. Winner of the Palme d'Or, and nominated for an Academy Award.

Shot on location in Rome, Lazio, and Sicily, Italy.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, lightly edgeworn.
