N.p. N.p., 1969. Vintage borderless photographs from the set of the 1969 film.

Based on the 1935 debut novel by Horace McCoy. One of the darkest films of the 1960s, bringing to the screen McCoy's classic, grim depiction of the dance marathons of Depression-era 1930s. An uncompromising and daring work, in our opinion the best film of Sydney Pollack's career. Nominated for nine Academy Awards, winning one for Best Supporting Actor for Gig Young.

Set in Hollywood.

9.25 x 7.5 inches. Some light edgewear, else Near Fine.
