BEAUTY AND THE BEAST [LA BELLE ET LA BETE] (1946) – 1
Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Jean Marais, Josette Day, Mila Parély, Nane Germon, Michel Auclair, Raoul Marco, Marcel André, dir: Jean Cocteau; DisCina. This still is for the original US release.
Story of the daughter of a merchant who comes into the castle of a monster — half-human, half-beast — as a sacrifice after her father stumbles upon him and he demands his death or that he give up one of his daughters. She discovers that the beast is not as inhuman as he wants others to think. A beautifully photographed (Henri Alekan) and atmospheric film classic.
This is a great portrait of Jean Marais as The Beast and was likely photographed by G. R. Aldo. It is coded BB-6. Minor soil along right edge blank white margin and minor crease at top left corner. JUST ABOUT FINE.
