Lorraine Hansberry (playrwright, screenwriter) A RAISIN IN THE SUN (1961) Photo archive$2,000.00
[Hollywood]: Columbia Pictures, 1961. Set of fifty (50) vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still photos. Many neatly trimmed for publication, with narrow blank margins. Most have mimeographed text on verso. Some also have photographer’s stamps and date stamps. Overall, near fine.
A remarkably comprehensive archive of photos from this groundbreaking film, from a screenplay by Hansberry from her play. Many of the principals from the 1959 Broadway production (Sidney Poitier, Ruby Dee, Ivan Dixon, Diana Sands) also appeared in the film.
