Three Violent People

N.p. N.p., 1957. Vintage oversize borderless double weight reference photograph of actor (and later novelist) Tom Tryon practicing a horse mount with the use of only his left arm, on the location for the 1957 film. In the film, Tryon plays "Beauregard," a cowboy who is missing his right arm.

With the stamps of photographer Bill Avery and editor Bud Fraker on the verso, along with a holograph pencil annotation noting "965-8".

Bill Avery worked as a photographer at Columbia Pictures in the early twentieth century, with a brief interlude working as a combat cameraman during World War II. He also worked at MGM under noted photographer C.S. Bill, and occasionally worked as a freelance publicity photographer, shooting iconic images of Elvis Presley, Jack Lemmon, Katharine and Audrey Hepburn, and Shirley MacLaine, among many others.

13.5 x 10.5 inches. Very Good plus, with a few holograph notations on the verso in addition to the aforementioned photographer stamps.
