Restoration: Linen-backed

Grade: C6  Fine. Folded, single-sided. Prior to linen backing this was a theater used poster with moderate handling/edge/fold wear, some cross fold separation, several fold separations at the edges, and slightly brittle/fragile paper -- now appears very fine to near mint.

It has often been said that in the world of film, there was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Rarely has one film so changed the language of cinema — but that is exactly what critic-turned-director Jean-Luc Godard did with his 1960 debut film. Everything about this film was anti-Hollywood — he shot on location using only natural lighting, the actors improvised most of the dialog and he simply followed them to record the moment and the emotions. And filming permits, who needs them! What resulted was more like free-form jazz than than the typical structured, manicured film product from the major studios and audiences flocked to it.

This extremely rare Italian 2-foglio features a wonderful embrace between Michel and Patricia. Artist Sandro Symeoni captured one of the best likenesses of Seberg ever put to poster. She’s rocking the pixie cut to boot — long before Mia Farrow got famous for the look in Rosemary’s Baby I might add! And while the inset imagery on this poster could maybe be considered abstract if you were a first time viewer, film-lovers will instantly recognize the other hugely important and revealing scene featured between the young lovers!
