BREATHLESS (1960; 1961 first US-release) Pressbook


Vintage original 17 x 11″ (43 x 28 cm.) pressbook, USA. Jean Seberg, Jean-Paul Belmondo, dir: Jean-Luc Godard; Films Around the World.

This is a fascinating document, which records the initial reception of this classic of the French New Wave, as it arrived in the US at the beginning of the Kennedy era. The pressbook has an unusual format, whereby each of its opening pages is wider than the one which precedes it, so that they overlap on the front cover.

Folio, folded (as issued), 14 pp. Some scattered creasing, VERY GOOD+.
