Jim Jarmusch (director, screenwriter)
John Lurie, Tom Waits, Roberto Benigni, Nicoletta Braschi (starring)

N.p. N.p., Circa 1987. Vintage borderless reference photograph from the 1987 film, showing a nude, cackling Billie Neal, with John Lurie sullenly sitting at a table in the background. Annotations in manuscript ink on the verso.

An irritable pimp, an out-of-work disc jockey, and a lackadaisical Italian tourist find themselves in an unlikely trio when they are sentenced to share a prison cell, where they decide to escape together into the Louisiana bayou.

Set and shot on location in Slidell and New Orleans, Louisiana.

9.5 x 7 inches. About Fine.
