IMMORTAL STORY, THE [UNE HISTOIRE IMMORTELLE] (1968) Set of 5 French photos

Sold

[France: ORTF, 1968]. Set of five vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy photos. One has label on verso for use in London. Fine.

Set in the nineteenth century, this is Orson Welles’ original tale of a wealthy man who puts into motion making a legend come true so he can have an heir. Much of this French television movie was filmed in Welles’ home in Spain. The stars — Welles, Jeanne Moreau and Roger Corgio — are featured in these images. One image depicts Welles working behind-the-scenes.

Photos from this, Welles’ last fiction film, are terribly uncommon. None have ever appeared for auction and I have never handled any.

Photos coded: immortal 5, 9, 13, 20 and 22.
