        John Wayne and eleven companions on the set of The Cowboys (1971)

      N.p.: N.p., 1971. Vintage oversize double weight sepia photograph of John Wayne and eleven young cohorts on the set of "The Cowboys" in 1971. Shot, struck, and mounted by the film's still photographer, Bob Willoughby. The photographer has written at the top of the verso, in holograph ink: "71-011 / The Cowboys." Full provenance available. Shot on location in Colorado (Durango, Canon City, Castle Rock, Pagosa Springs), and New Mexico (Chama, Galisteo, Santa Fe). After studying with Saul Bass at the Kann Institute of Art in Los Angeles, Willoughby began working as a photographer for magazines such as "Life," "Look," and "Harper's Bazaar" in the late 1940s. It was while on assignment covering Judy Garland in a "A Star is Born" that Willoughby's ability to capture his subjects' spontaneity, humor, and vulnerability, resulting in images that were far different from more traditional film stills, came to Hollywood's attention and earned him his first "Life" magazine cover. Willoughby spent the next 20-plus years working as a set photographer for every major studio, documenting some of most important films of the era and creating intimate portraits of some of Hollywood's greatest celebrities. Technically and stylistically innovative, Willoughby built the first remote radio-controlled cameras used on film sets, pioneered the use of the "silent blimp" for 35mm cameras, and created brackets to mount his cameras directly over the movie cameras to capture the same images. Willoughby moved his family to County Cork, Ireland in 1972, working on only a handful of films through the late 1970s and early 1980s, though he would continue to photograph, exhibit, and publish books for the remainder of his life. The stills in this collection were given by Willoughby to friends in Kilbrittain, Ireland just prior to his move to Vence, France in 1989, where he would remain until his death in 2009. Perhaps more than any other photographer, Willoughby is responsible for creating the the look of mid-century celebrity and moviemaking in the popular imagination, with his images printed in magazines literally every week of his career. But beyond being prolific, Willoughby's legacy rests with his ability capture the essence of the actors he photographed, as well as the films with which those photographs were associated. As Sydney Pollack said in his introduction to Willoughby's autobiography, "Sometimes a filmmaker gets a look at a photograph taken on his own set and sees the 'soul' of his film in one still photograph. It's rare, but it happens. It happened to me in 1969, the first time I looked at the work of Bob Willoughby during the filming of "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" Willoughby's photographs are in the permanent collections of ten museums, including The National Portrait Galleries in Washington, DC and London, the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Tate Modern. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 13.5 x 9.5 inches. Near Fine. Pitt 833.

        Original manuscript for "Knocking 'Round the Zoo"

      Original manuscript for a draft of legendary singer-songwriter James Taylor's early song, "Knockin' Around the Zoo," composed shortly after his stay at the Belmont Psychiatric Hospital for severe depression when he was 17 years old. To the best of our knowledge, this is the earliest known handwritten Taylor lyric to have ever appeared for sale. The lyric was written out for John Herald, who was playing in Taylor's early, short-lived band, The Flying Machine, during recording sessions for Euphoria Records. The unfinished tracks from those sessions, little more than demos, were shelved until 1971, when they were released by Euphoria as "James Taylor and the Original Flying Machine," after the success of Taylor's 1970 solo album "Sweet Baby James." "Knockin' Around the Zoo" is a droll but angry look at Taylor's depression and subsequent hospitalization at a mental institution, a theme later made poignant in Taylor's breakout hit "Fire and Rain" from that album. The holograph additions made in this particular manuscript are present in both recorded versions of the song, which also appears on Taylor's first solo record, "James Taylor" (Apple Records, 1968). Other lines in this draft do not appear on either version of the song, and are unique to this manuscript. A historically important and unique piece from one of the greatest and most influential singer-songwriters in rock history. John Herald is a legendary folk musician whose roots go back to the late 1950s bluegrass scene. He was a major player in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960s, where he attended jam sessions with the likes of Bob Dylan, Rory Block and Ramblin' Jack Elliott. In addition to the long-term association with his band The Greenbriar Boys, he has recorded with Jack Elliott and Doc Watson, managed bluegrass legend Bill Monroe, and written songs recorded by Linda Rondstadt, Jonathan Edwards, Maria Muldaur and Joan Baez. 8 x10 inches, somewhat worn and slightly foxed manuscript lyric sheet hand-printed in lined paper in bold pencil, with several holograph corrections. Letter of provenance from John Herald included. In a custom quarter-leather clamshell box.

        Großformat!!! Französisches orginal Werbeplakat James Bond - Les Diamants sont Eternels (Diamonds are forever) i,

      1971 - Size: 63 x 47 inches = 160 x 119 cm!!!! Diamonds Are Forever (1971) is the seventh spy film in the James Bond series by Eon Productions, and the sixth and final Eon film to star Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film is based on Ian Fleming's 1956 novel of the same name, and is the second of four James Bond films directed by Guy Hamilton. The story has Bond impersonating a diamond smuggler to infiltrate a smuggling ring, and soon uncovering a plot by his old nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld to use the diamonds to build a giant laser. Bond has to battle his nemesis for one last time, in order to stop the smuggling and stall Blofeld's plan of destroying Washington DC, and extorting the world with nuclear supremacy. After George Lazenby left the franchise, producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli tested other actors, but studio United Artists wanted Sean Connery back, paying a then-record $1.25 million salary for him to return. The producers were inspired by Goldfinger, eventually hiring that film's director, Guy Hamilton. Locations included Las Vegas, California, Amsterdam and Lufthansa's hangar in Germany. Diamonds Are Forever was a commercial success, but received criticism for its humorous camp tone. --- Les diamants sont éternels (Diamonds Are Forever) est un film britannique réalisé par Guy Hamilton et sorti en 1971. C'est le 7e opus de la série des films de James Bond produite par Harry Saltzman et Albert R. Broccoli, par l'intermédiaire de leur société EON Productions. Sean Connery incarne James Bond pour la dernière fois pour EON Productions. Il reviendra cependant en 1983 dans Jamais plus jamais, produit par une autre société.

        Autograph Letter Signed from Israel's First Prime Minister DAVID BEN-GURION to Canadian Artist and Poet PAUL Z. HARTAL, Mentioning the Altalena Affair

      Sdeh Boker 1971 - BEN-GURION, DAVID. (1886-1973). Polish-born Israeli statesman who, as his country's first prime minister, proclaimed Israel's independence in 1948. ALS. ("D. Ben-Gurion"). ½p. 8vo. Sdeh Boker, May 7, 1971. To Hungarian born, Canadian artist and poet PAUL Z. HARTAL (born 1936). In Hebrew with translation. "To Zev Hartal, Peace and Greetings, I agree that it is not the quantity which matters but the quality. This we have learnt in everything and in the war that we waged since the establishment of the state. However, the fighters against the Romans and the Babylonians did not surpass in quality their enemies. And you are right - that our civil war in the Roman period was the cause of our defeat. In our war against the Arab armies - there was no civil war. The Altalena affair took place during the first truce - and we immediately brought it to an end. Most respectfully." An early supporter of Zionism, Ben-Gurion moved to Ottoman-controlled Palestine in 1906 and become a farmer. Expelled by the Turkish government at the outbreak of World War I, he rallied British and American support, and called for increased Jewish immigration to Palestine. His decades of promoting Zionism led to the strengthening of Palestine's Jewish community and on May 14, 1948, Ben-Gurion proclaimed the birth of the state of Israel. A provisional government was created along with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), which was charged with absorbing all other independent military groups. However, several paramilitary groups resisted the reorganization and continued their operations, including the Irgun (headed by future prime minister Menachem Begin) which had chartered the ship Altalena in France to smuggle weapons to its members inside Israel. Although the Irgun had signed an agreement with the IDF to cease operations, the Altalena secretly set sail for Israel at the beginning of June. Aboard were large amounts of arms and ammunition as well as volunteers. When news of the Altalena and Irgun's violation of the prior agreement reached Ben-Gurion, he and Begin began negotiations to distribute the cargo and work out other details. However, before a resolution could be reached, fighting broke out between members of Irgun and the IDF, forcing Ben-Gurion to order the taking of the ship by force. The Irgun surrendered and several hundred members were arrested. The importance of the "Altalena Affair" lies in the establishment of the young state of Israel's authority: the fact that the incident did not devolve into civil war, as Ben-Gurion points out in our letter, was one of the first tests of the fledgling nation. Our letter was a response to a missive Hartal sent to Ben-Gurion commenting on the latter's article published in Tel Aviv's daily newspaper Ma'ariv. A transcription of Hartal's letter accompanies ours, which also mentions the wars of the First and Second Temple periods. With the original envelope and in fine condition. * All our items are sent via Federal Express. Additional postage may be necessary. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
