Lions Love (...and Lies)

Agnes Varda (director)
Viva, James Rado, Gerome Ragni, Shirley Clarke (starring)

N.p. N.p., Circa 1969. Vintage borderless reference photograph of director Agnes Varda with actors Viva and James Rado on the set of the 1969 film.

A drama with traditional narrative that incorporated improvisational cinema verite. Varda included American director Shirley Clarke in her cast as an avant garde film director who hopes to collaborate with real-life writers James Rado and Jerome Ragni (creators of the musical "Hair"), and wants to cast real-life Warhol superstar Viva as her leading lady. Tough guy Eddie Constantine, director Peter Bogdanovich (after "Targets" but before "The Last Picture Show"), and screenwriter Carlos Clarens lend their occasional presence to the proceedings.

Set and shot on location in Hollywood.

7.75 x 3.75 inches. Very Good plus, with light edgewear.

Criterion Collection 43.
